“Eat the Pigs”- Political Graffiti in Portland Protests
July 24 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Please join Kick Ass Oregon History’s Resident Historian, Doug Kenck-Crispin on Tuesday, July 24th 7:00pm (Doors at 6pm) at Art Market PDX (1125 SE Grand Ave.) for “Eat the Pigs” – Political Grafiti in Portland Protests.
Art Market PDX’s theme for July is Graffiti! The Resident Historian will present a review of modern political protest history in Portland, the universal heavy-handed responses by the Portland Police Bureau, and the protest slogans and graffiti that emerged from these events. DKC will examine the May 1970 PSU Park Blocks Riot, the Little Beirut protests of the Old Bush era, the July 1993 Anarchist UnConference at the X-Ray Cafe (photo on the flyer), and the August 1998 Daniel Binns birthday party/march/riot. Following the presentation, the 1970 PSU film “The Seventh Day” will be projected. Please join us for this enlightening presentation. #resist
