Portland Mom Protesters Sing ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Lullaby
A sea of moms protesting police misconduct and racial inequality in Portland came up with a sort of remix … a lullaby singing “Hands up, don’t shoot”.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of moms took to the streets on Monday night and sang the lullaby in unison. Nearly 100 mothers from the “Mommy’s Wall” also stood outside a federal courthouse, locking their arms and forming a human shield to protect protesters from federal officers. They also chanted: “The moms are here! The feds remain clear!”
If you live under a rock … Portland has been the scene of protests for over 50 days now. The protests were mostly peaceful, but there were cases of vandalism and violence … prompting the federal government to send federal agents to the city of Roses to restore order.
The problem is … dozens of federal agents showed up wearing masks, camouflages, and showing ZERO ID badges while stopping protesters and transporting them in unmarked vehicles. Videos on social networks of these arrests sparked outrage in the city … prompting the “Mommy’s Wall” to get involved.
Even though state officials want the federal government to bounce back, it looks like the federal government will only speed things up. The Trump administration reportedly plans to do the same in other cities in America … including Chicago.
Our sincere thanks to
