The Canary‘s Slava Zilber spoke with journalist Wyatt Reed, who has been covering the Black Lives Matter protests in Portland, Oregon. Federal officers, deployed by Donald Trump, have been targeting both protesters and journalists in Portland in an increasingly authoritarian clampdown.
At the time of publication, federal officers appear to have stepped back from their frontline positions as part of a withdrawal agreement with Oregon’s governor Kate Brown. How long this lasts remains to be seen.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
