|In Salem, Oregon approximately 150 black bloc Antifa militants assembled outside the Oregon state capitol on Sunday, 28 March to counter a “freedom rally” organized by right wing activists. The rally organizers gathered in Sandy, just east of Portland and travelled to the capital in a caravan of approximately 70 vehicles. |
Antifa militants had infiltrated the caravan, reporting on its composition, demeanor, and movement to those waiting in Salem. Militants from the Cherry City Collective, Rose City Antifa, and the Portland chapter of the Youth Liberation Front (YLF) staged at the Capitol threw rocks and shined lasers into the eyes of arriving caravan participants.
According to the Salem Police Department (SPD), Antifa militants were wearing ballistic armor, and several possessed firearms. One caravan driver was detained after drawing a handgun in response to being surrounded while Antifa smashed his windows and tail lights. SPD deployed less-lethal munitions and arrested three militants after the gathering was declared an unlawful assembly. Prior to the attacks, Antifa militants were instructed to be prepared for violence and coordinated bail funding and legal assistance.
Here is some insight as to the Left’s view of the incident.

Here is an article written by a leftist that highlights the amount of advanced prep that was put into their attacks: Fascist Free 503: Notes On Holding The Streets In Salem – PopularResistance.Org
Here is one of their quotations to highlight what their goal is: “We don’t think you fight fire with fire best; we think you fight fire with water best. We’re going to fight racism not with racism, but we’re going to fight with solidarity. We say we’re not going to fight capitalism with black capitalism, but we’re going to fight it with socialism. … We’re going to fight…with all of us people getting together and having an international proletarian revolution.”

We Are Anarchists:
We Are Non-Sectarian:
Although we come out of the anarchist movement, we seek to build a media platform to give voice to a wide range of autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements – regardless of label or tendency.
What We Do Not Do:
As a news and media platform, It’s Going Down does not plan or organize protests or demonstrations. However, we do signal boost what people are already organizing in their locality.
We do not advocate or promote violence or non-violence. Movements for liberation decide for themselves on what the best strategy is to get and stay free. We respect local organizers efforts and their understanding of the situations they are faced with.
LFC Comments: All Americans that attended the January 6, 2021 rally in Washington, D.C. have been labelled as domestic terrorists by the Democrats, RINO’s, FBI, DOJ, but anarchists are given a free pass as loyal protesters exercising their first amendment rights.
We attended the Washington rally on January 6th, and took these videos of the “Far right domestic terrorists”, supposedly bent on destroying our constitutional Republic. Do you see any differences in these videos and the videos on the website Itsgoingdown.org?
