The Trump administration has deployed unidentifiable Federal troops to Portland and various other cities across America in order to attack Black Lives Matter protesters. In Portland, these Federal troops have been brutalizing and snatching protesters off the street into unmarked vehicles. This is a direct attack on the people’s movement and it is our duty to stand against it.

Students for a Democratic Society condemns this act of repression. We are demanding that all federal troops be removed from all of our cities, including Portland, Chicago, Seattle, Kansas City, and Albuquerque. We demand the end of Trump’s repression of the people’s movement.

Black Lives Matter! Federal Troops out now! Stop repressing the people’s movement!
