PDX Protest — Day 20


$15 million was just not enough, it seems.

  • The Pearl is bougie AF and not all boarded up like downtown, so they might have feared escalating things into property destruction.
  • Wheeler just voted to strip $15 million from their budget, so they mighta been a bit surly over it.
  • They were strategizing. One hell of a situation had developed, and it was a PR disaster just itching to happen.
  • My own money says that they were monitoring Twitter, waiting for the press to leave.
