The protest started as a rally in the nearby Arbor Lodge Park in solidarity with Jacob Blake, a Black man shot by police in Wisconsin, and protesters in Kenosha.
At about 9:30 p.m., a group of about 300 militants started marching to the Portland Police Association building on Lombard Street.
Within minutes of arriving, fires were set on the outside of the building.
Pigs were hit with rocks and umbrellas thrown by militants.
Militants also attacked the E Pike Amazon Go store.
Revolutionaries made their way to the West Precinct where some militants began hurling objects at the building causing damage and broken windows as well as painting graffiti on the walls. A nearby coffee shop was also attacked by militants who smashed the plate glass windows. The group then made their way back east and continued to protest outside the East Precinct. Revolutionaries there climbed over a chain-link fence and set a fire next to the building. One pig was injured during the course of the uprising.
Multiple incendiary devices were also thrown outside the offices of the Seattle Police Officer Guild union offices on 4th Ave S.
The Coopers Tavern on Mifflin Street was among the capitalist businesses to sustain damage during Monday’s uprising in Madison, with all of its front windows smashed in.
Among the most heavily damaged businesses were Teddywedgers Sandwich Shop, the It’s Sugar candy store and Badger Liquors – which was looted on Monday night. A bus stop on State Street also bore damage from the night, with all the windows smashed out.
Several buildings along State Street were also tagged with graffiti, with anti-police messaging as well as Black Lives Matter tags.
On Mifflin Street, the Merrill Lynch Wealth Management office had windows smashed in, with graffiti that read, “Here are your premiums.” The UW Credit Union on Mifflin was also attacked.
The headquarters of one of the state’s most influential lobbying groups was also set on fire and attacked late Monday.
A crowd of hundreds of revolutionaries set fires and attacked property in downtown, and a Molotov cocktail was thrown at the entrance of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce’s offices on East Washington Avenue.
The militants smashed the building’s windows and spray painted, “you have stolen more than we could ever loot” on its side.
Dozens of armed revolutionaries the Denver Police Headquarters late Saturday and damaged buildings, set fires and injured a pig.
Revolutionaries were armed with guns, explosives, axes, machetes.
Fireworks were shot at officers, an American flag and a tree outside a courthouse were set ablaze, windows were shattered and fast-food restaurant was broken into during the uprising.
One pig suffered a concussion and third-degree burns.
The shooting of Jacob Blake has sparked a new wave of the uprising that began with the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis in May. Revolutionaries will continue attacking the police and capitalist businesses until the US’ s white supremacist pig forces are completely eliminated.
