I spent a lot of yesterday afternoon early/evening down there… the vibe has totally changed… rumor has it that a guy who was a riot ribs volunteer came back and forcibly took over riot ribs. The real Riot Ribs guys had to flee town… This person is supposedly gang affiliated etc. There’s a bunch of kids down there who I’m also assuming are associated with this person just attacking numerous people. I guess they had attacked a couple Trump supporters before I got there yesterday and there has been a lot of fights in the square… Someone was shot the other night. People are also threatening to remove the live streamers by force claiming they’re helping the cops by documenting shit… as if the cops don’t have cameras and snitches.
Also there’s a lot of people just coming down to fight with the police/feds whose actions get the peaceful protesters beat up and gassed, loud mouthed white guys drowning everyone else out etc. and a lot of the POC protesters are tired of it.
