The protests have begun. Here's a link to live streams.

This will be much more intense after dark. That's when the agents provocateurs come out.

There are protests every night, most notoriously in Portland, since the death of George Floyd.

It's become in vogue to be a live streamer.

...with no redeeming, or even progressive thread to the appeal. Nothing associated with the impetus behind protests, just a pat invitation to gawk perhaps, with a bit of provocation thrown in.

This is exactly the wrong approach to supporting these protests.

These protests have been going on for 119 days, since the death of George Floyd.

I am pointing this out.

It is not my intention to explain what they are about, as I assume this is obvious to anyone on a social media board for liberals.
