On June 27th, Portland was breaking heat records, as a group of anarchists and other leftists were hauling supplies into a homeless encampment.
“I knew you guys would come,” a resident said. They expected the presence of mutual aid, a longtime, unsung presence in the City of Roses.
During crisis (the wildfires in 2020) and amidst common problems (filling long-untended potholes) mutual aid groups and individual anarchists identify and solve problems.
