Another weekend, another protest. This one was to protest Trump’s denial of climate change and destruction of government efforts to slow the damage.
This one took place east of the Willamette. But it had the requisite touches of “keep Portland weird.”
Sometimes when I start out to do a video it becomes quite a project. Besides shooting it, I get involved in trying out new effects. Sometimes that leads me to a circuitous route of learning new software and problem-solving.
It appears that I hit the “publish” icon for my earlier post: “Women’s March on Portland,” a little too soon. So the video link was not in place. Let’s hope the video below works better.
My wife, Marilynn, her daughter, Lisa, and I participated in the Women”s March on Washington, Portland. What an event!
It was hard to tell at ground level, but the 100,000 estimated attendance was WAY beyond what was expected. I can testify that the crowd was upbeat, friendly, peaceful…and rain-soaked.
Below is a two-minute video of my perspective at the event. It’s short because I forgot to shut off my wi-fi and cell data so my battery died half way through. But I think it gives the flavor of the activity.
