WATCH: Secret Antifa tent city found, and Portland is paying for it
Where do Portland Antifans rest during the day between riots at night? In a hidden tent city near downtown, paid for and serviced by the city, according to a local citizen journalist.
And they didn’t like their cover blown. After capturing the encampment on video, “I was chased approximately four or five blocks by two men, one with a slingshot,” reported the Vlogger, who remained unidentified for his safety.
“This encampment is filled with young vibrant people who are actively, at night, committing crimes, and burning Portland to the ground,” he said on his YouTube channel, Never Alone With Christ.
Anonymous or not, public records provide a troubling bombshell. The encampment is one of several specialized shelters under the auspices of the Joint Office of Homeless Services.
It is entirely funded by the city of Portland, with start-up costs priced at $214,097 and ongoing support for all three sites expected at $155,488 monthly, N.A.W.C. said.
Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty are said to be the key backers of the temporary outdoor shelters such as this one, located at the Star Park Festival Lots by the Hawthorne Bridge Junction.
Two large buses are often nearby, but weren’t on the day of filming, he said.
