Homeland “Security” in Camouflage

I guess you may have read in the news about federal troups (deployed by Trump) invading Portland, Oregon to “restore order” after there were 50 nights of demonstrations against police brutality. The word invading is mine, since they were not invited to “help” by the local police or mayor or governor AND they caused an escalation in the violence they were supposedly there to quell. Picture this. . .camouflaged officers jumping out of vans to grab protesters without explanation.

Many of us are asking, is this really my country or a fascist state?!

Got me to thinking. . .how to tell the story in the way I know. . .with paint. . .because words just failed me.

  1. I know that feeling. Sending lots of love from Brazil, where we are also dealing with police brutality and fascism now, while COVID takes away so many people… let’s support each other and fight this monster with kindess, knowledge and art. Stay safe.
