Downtown in distress: Portland's core is unsafe and uninviting, residents say in new poll, threateni

https://www.oregonlive.com/business/2021/05/downtown-in-distress-portlands-core-is-unsafe-and-uninviting-residents-say-in-new-poll-threatening-citys-recovery.html
"Residents across the metro area say downtown Portland has become dirty, unsafe and uninviting and many anticipate visiting the city’s core less often after the pandemic than they did before.

Those are the worrisome findings of a new poll of 600 people in the Portland metro area commissioned by The Oregonian/OregonLive. Asked for their perceptions of downtown, respondents frequently used words like “destroyed,” “trashed,” “riots” and “sad.” Many cited homelessness as a particular issue, and said there is an urgent need for the city to find housing and support people living on the street."

2. The fascists and their anti-government, anti-socialist, anti-justice mobs are making the USA

a failed state and soon to be one of the S-holes Trump talked about in 2016. Great job, Donald.

5. I've been out here for 6 years. The damage from rioting is pretty much 100% inflicted by self

proclaimed anarchists.
These right wing groups are a bag of assholes who come in and stir up trouble just by showing up but they are not the ones trashing the city.
