despite the mayor's assurances, portland police did assist DHS cops in closing down the area around the camp:

> Expectations vs Reality. We know that @PortlandPolice is working with @ICEgov but the Mayor wants us to believe otherwise. La Migra, Los Politicos, La Policia...la misma porqueria. Call Mayor @tedwheeler and demand a stop in the collaboration between ICE and police. #OccupyICEpdx

DHS agents report they have not collaborated with county or city police, which implies somebody's hiding info, lying, or the portland cops are acting independently. worrying.

why do they need live ammo

they don't

why does a police presence always feel like an occupying army? the warrior class is unaccountable, invulnerable, and wildly over-geared. They Are All White.

This is evil.

here's the thing: we'll be back

the main camp isn't dismantled. discipline is holding. remember when occupy survived police sweep after police sweep? we have tactics for this. the occupation will go on.

abolish and prosecute ICE! hold every fascist accountable!

film the cops. it makes them nervous.

there are a couple feds on scene that didn't cover their faces (many did) but are still shying away from cameras. bowing their heads. averting their eyes. fidgeting nervously. ashamed.

take responsibility for your compliance, pigs. there is no Just Following Orders. we must all take responsibility for the machinery we enable, no matter how cruel or vicious or overwhelming.

I've been trying to get yomichan (firefox extension to read Japanese kanji) to work but it seems like it's bugging out with a tiling window manager (xmonad). I hover on a Japanese character and I see some window seemingly appear off screen, but I can't read it because it's outside of my screen. Is there a way I can fix this? Anyone has any input on how I could get this to work? It's really frustrating.

As precious metals become more scarce, a third world country drowning in electronic waste have an opportunity to become the world capital of electronics recycling and refurbishment. But the economic powers that be won't take it lying down. What challenges will these underdogs face? What geopolitical and socioeconomic slights will dealt by established world powers?
