Show Notes

Introducing a new podcast series... Stop Tear-Gaslighting Us. We will be sitting down with community members who hit the streets in the 2020 George Floyd protests in Portland to look back and look at where we are now. We are joined by Editor-in-Chief of We Out Here Magazine and activist Mac Smiff this week.

We talk about what it was like on the ground, bad memories of teargas and police violence, misconceptions about Portland protesters, media portrayal of the protests, and whether the goals of the protests were met.
