Video claims to show 'antifa war camp' in Portland. It's actually a homeless shelter during COVID19

https://www.oregonlive.com/coronavirus/2020/09/a-video-claimed-to-show-an-antifa-war-camp-in-portland-its-actually-a-shelter-for-homeless-people-during-the-covid-19-pandemic.html

A video widely shared across right-wing media claims to show a ’war camp’ for antifa agitators in Portland. The video captured dozens of blue tents spread across two parking lots in Southeast Portland.

This claim is false. The two adjacent lots shown in the video are temporary homeless camps for unhoused Portland residents, according to two nonprofits that helped install them. The campsites were set up in April, predating racial justice protests that have persisted nightly in Portland since late May.

Journalists from The Oregonian/OregonLive spent several weeks earlier this year documenting life in these city-sanctioned homeless camps located in vacant lots in Portland.

1. Lies can be strong weapons

Worked for Trump.

These jerks want violence. And Trump is right there encouraging them.
