"W N I. C N P Rx in collaboration with WGBH Radio in Boston in Portland, Oregon. Protests against police brutality and racism have continued for over 50 consecutive days. Trump administration has recently responded by deploying federal officers, some of whom are unidentifiable and driving unmarked vehicles to arrest those protesters, and that's been happening since at least July 14th according to local reports. So far, more than 400 protesters have been arrested since May. Joined by Jonathan Levinson, reporter for Oregon Public Broadcasting based out of Portland. Jonathan. Thanks for being with us Thanks for having me. So I started seeing early reports of these officers. I don't know how we would characterize them dressed in fatigues. When did you all first hear about what was happening? Because it wasn't until you all confirm what was happening. That I knew that this was this was, in fact really happening. Yeah. Federal officers started making In appearance of the protests. I guess you could say around July 1st, and at that point they were coming out and sort of clearing the protesters away from the federal courthouse and then on July 4th, they made really big show of force and Cleared protesters away from the federal courthouse with tear gas and impact munitions and then kept going into the park across the street and that's city property and then kept going beyond that, and they were joined then by important police and we're clearing for Multiple city blocks well past any federal property, and that was the sort of their first big show of force where it was clear that they were going to taking a more proactive role. And then these the use of unmarked vehicles. We saw videos posted on Twitter of them driving around downtown late at night in unmarked minivans, and I started reaching out to people and, you know, looking for people who have been arrested and came across Mark Pettibone. And his story, You know, he was at a protest downtown him in a friend at about 2 30 in the morning, walking back to their car, and they bumped into a group on the way back there car who told them that there had been a minivan driving around with guys and camouflaging it about 1/2 a block later, minivan pulls up four or five guys Jump out. They grab mark. They pull a beanie down over his head so he can't see And toss him in the van, hold his arms over his head and tried around for a little bit. And then he ends up getting unloaded inside a building, which later he would learn was the federal courthouse. Jonathan, this feels I'm not going to say it's unprecedented because we're now you know, Today we have the use of video, which you know, we hadn't had for much of our history. So, but this just feels bizarre. I mean, t use the word that we can use on public radio to say the least it what is going on in Portland with these officers. I mean it. It does feel bizarre. I think that's an understatement. Like you said. I was interviewing on independent finance reporter here, Tuck Woodstock getting their sense of what had been going on. And they said something interesting that actually really resonated, which is when the report of the minivan's came out. They weren't super shocked, and that was because over the past 50 plus days they're just in a steady escalation. You know the important police stopped using their name tags on their uniforms, and they were using impact missions in tear gas and protesters have been severely injured and in the federal police showed up and they started doing sort of Maur of the same. And so when these reports started coming out, it just felt like the next sort of incremental step. And it wasn't until even for me writing this story and seeing the response that I realised just how terrible it wass. You mentioned local police stopped using their their name badges or started covering their names s O. They were unidentifiable. So this has been a slow escalation. Jonathan, who is directing this Is this coming all the way from are the top cop If you will. Attorney General Bill Bar. Is it coming from local police departments? Is this a federal directive? There are many chains of command to play here. I want to come to Portland police. It is certainly a local thing. It is the city. That is that is in control. The name tags important police. That is because They were concerned about their officers getting docks. Federal police This is this was done in response to the president signed an executive order on June 26th to protect statues and monuments and to address what he called criminal violence. In response to that department, Homeland Security and the Department of Justice Sense federal officers. To various cities in the country. I think of Seattle, Washington, DC, Gettysburg National Park in Pennsylvania and Portland. And so where we're told, is that when federal officers are responsible for federal property and city police are responsible for the city and that when federal officers when they're clearing city streets, that there are two totally separate chains of command that Portland police chief is in charge of Portland Police and federal police are in charge of themselves. And so even when they're acting together, it's two separate chains of command. Jonathan that still doesn't explain this idea of grabbing Americans off of the streets, stuffing them into the back of a van and then throwing them into a federal courthouse without having Explained. Why what the charges are What the grievances are any of that? This just feels now the EU has been on the ground. They're calling this quote, flat out unconstitutional. Come on. Inside their buildings, then they should leave. The governor has said that their presence is a provocation. Oregon senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden have said that they're going to introduce amendment to the defense bill this week. To prevent what Senator Merkley called. I think he's a paramilitary soldiers in American cities something along those lines. The Oregon attorney general is opening an investigation into the U. S marshal who Shot and severely injured protester here with an impact munition. Lochley rubber bullets that actually there's there's various forms, some of them little plastic munitions, and some of them are larger, really hard foam rounds and they caused severe damage and taken. They've killed protesters. They blinded protesters there. Yeah. I don't want to take anything away from Oregon State officials. But is that enough? I mean, I think it for people on the ground here once you start getting into these political machinations, right? And you know, senators in D C. During that thing and the governor doing their thing. It doesn't feel like quite an obstruction. When every single night you're out there getting tear gassed and getting shot at Is it enough? I know that you know. Last night there were still hundreds of people out protesting and again. They got tear gassed, so nothing's changed so far. Oh, but getting tear gas is different than getting picked up off of the street shoved into the back of a van. I mean, are we still seeing that type of behavior to what one of the officials called paramilitary Behavior. We in the system. It hasn't happened, but we have not seen it. Having since this story came out a same time. Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli did say that this is a tactic they use. He didn't disavow. It didn't say that they're going to stop doing it. Well, Cuccinelli to that point, also said, this is something that they used nationally, not just in Oregon. Correct again. I haven't seen reports of it being used in other cities. But I would imagine if it is that we would start hearing about it more. Jonathan Levinson is a reporter for Oregon Public Broadcasting based in Portland. Jonathan. Thanks for your time, thank you..

This. This social media mob. And how the social media mob sometimes turns on one another if they feel like one of their own, has stepped over the line. You know what the line is? The line where they might just be inching ever so close. To a moderate position. Because let's face it, the social media mob out there. They're like the lunatic fringe. Now don't get me wrong. It's great for conservatives. It's great for Donald Trump. It's great for the election 2020 because I truly believe that the more that the leftist mom acts as insane as they do. Rational people, even rational Democrats. We'll look at all this and say, Yeah, I'm out. There's a story out there on James Harden. Now, If you don't know who James Harden is, it really doesn't matter. But he is a Houston Rockets, actually, hey, is a basketball player. And he decided that he was going to tweet out a picture of himself in a mask and it's a really cool mask. It's blue. It's got some really cool stars and stripes on it. And it turns out It's a thin blue line mask. You know, supporting the police officers? Remember, I just said he's a basketball player and a basketball player is pictured wearing a thin blue line mask that is in support of the police officers. And as you can imagine, The ever so tolerant left freaked out. And they start attacking this guy on Twitter now, just so you know, James Harden as Faras. I know. He has always seemed to me like one of the good guys. He's always just seemed like one of those people that has worked really hard, and he even says after people started attacking him. He says. Look, I wasn't trying to make a political statement, man. It looked cool and it covered my huge beard. He's got this massive beard. So he just thought it looked cool, he says. I wasn't trying to make a political statement. But that didn't stop all these people from attacking him. He continued to say that he is in the process of figuring out a way to best support the black lives matter movement while in quote unquote the bubble. Which could include having a social justice message written on his jersey. So isn't that interesting? The N B A. And then this brings back something that I was talking about a while ago. Remember the story about how the N b a A. You know they're back and they're gonna have black lives matter written on the sideline of the court. The basketball court. Big old black lives matter, right? All good well and find. Listen, just so you know if if you don't remember where I stand on that they are a private entity, and if this is what they want to do, Then that is most certainly there, right? But I did ask the question. What happens? If somebody has a pro police message And they want to put that pro police message on their jersey because the N BA is allowing these players to have all of these social justice messages on the back of their jersey. So instead of you know, Harden, he might have black lives matter. Or any other kind of social justice message. You know, they've got this whole list, and some of them are ridiculous. Some of our fine again. I'm having a hard time getting really worked up about it. I guess for me, though.

"In collaboration with WGBH radio in Boston we're gonna continue our conversation on the challenges of fund raising in this moment the black lives matter uprising continues throughout the United States I'm joined by Eric ward executive director of the western states center and Brianna sacks a reporter for buzzfeed news Eric last time we spoke was twenty fifteen around the time that beyond say and Jay Z. have donated tens of thousands of dollars to a bail fund we were just talking about bail funds in the previous segment this one was for the Baltimore chapter of black lives matter to release protesters from jail how important is the role of celebrities or the involvement of celebrities in fund raising efforts right now it's it's critically important for celebrity voices to to be put into play I'm not only their voices but their ability to organize resources we we have to remember that African American Latino and indigenous communities have been underfunded for decades there are not very many resources are not very many leaders who are making an adequate wage and that impacts their ability to make change so celebrities bring both resources they they bring credibility but they bring attention to an issue and so we need to we and we are seeing you know from John legend to Beyonce say to Jay Z. but scores of of more artists to reach different generations and and different audiences we you see it in the voices of NASCAR racers to to baseball and Colin Capra neck it is quite a clean record it is a game changer in terms of ensuring that millions of Americans are paying attention to what is happening right now in in black and Latino and indigenous communities across the country I want to talk a little bit also about transparency and what can facilitate transparency because it feels like that's a lot of what donors are wanting from these organizations so one of the ways that we can achieve transparency is whether whether or not some of these organizations that become tax exempt nonprofits right which allow them to also accept larger donations from funders and large organizations are we seeing a movement towards don't toward some of these organizations wanting to get into that tax exempt nonprofit status that will also create the opportunity for them to share the books with folks I think we are beginning to see organizations grow into what we hold for our our sustainable institutions I I think a lot of work has been invested from black lives matters leaders to the movement for black lives our two organizations like color of change investments have been made and some local leaders local leaders are also learning in real time I I predict that within five years we will see a new generation of leaders and and organizations that joined the longstanding civil rights institutions it will attract younger people but this issue of capacity is critical capacity provides the transparency and accountability needed to manage large resources and to still be responsive to one's community and to be responsive to so the laws that operates nonprofits in our society Brianna in terms of the racial justice organizations that you're looking at are they trying to put into practice some more transparency R. or is there anything that people should know before they donate yeah I mean I also just wanted to say quickly that like the you know the power of Instagram and and Twitter here in this moment is that when everyone's really posting about donating to an organization or that their company like apple or Google where they work or Spotify is is is donating to this this thing and people really want to just be a part of that quickly and they then hop online and make their own campaign or push their own employer to match donations and it's all just happening really fast and they're not really looking at the information on some of these organizations because of you just do a scanner so many black lives matter this black lives matter that in so in you know with with transparency a lot of the sites we were finding that yeah yeah number for the Santa Clarita foundation would be paired with the description of the black lives matter global movement you know which is a Tory Asli decentralized and hard to get a hold of and you know they don't they fundraise through a separate arm called thousand currents because they're not an actual nonprofit which is where a ton of this confusion came in you know people were out protesting and wanted to put their money where their effort was but it's a lit it's hard to really find on you know the website of black lives matter global where to donate the money or it's confusing for the average person when they're quickly looking to do something good and they type in black lives matter foundation donate and if you still do that it's the first thing to come up on a databases like charity navigator and guidestar so Brianna what you're saying is people need to do their homework but Eric more broadly how can people stay engaged beyond this moment look I want to thank everyone who has given it is historic keep giving the anti choice organizations like funders for justice dot org which that took a lot of this think about giving more long term but most importantly be in touch with the organizations that you are finding get to know them become a relationship not just an ATM machine what should people be thinking about when they're considering donating right now the most important thing that I've found that a funder potential donor can do is turn to first visit the website of something they're considering donating to take a look around look at the mission look at the purpose and then look for the organization on social media look at not only what they talk about but what I will order their organizations followed them that's a process of due diligence are they receiving funds from other foundation let's go look at those foundation.
