“Feds* stay clear, moms are here!”
This was the chant of dozens of women who linked arms, forming a
protective wall around Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland, Oregon.
The Trump administration had sent in law enforcement troops to quell
what had been peaceful protests following the killing of George Floyd,
and also, supposedly, to back up his claim that Democrat mayors were
unable and/or reluctant to control such anarchism. The Wall of Moms group
was formed after a mother of two saw videos online of protesters being
forced by unidentifed federal agents into unmarked vehicles. Since then,
the moms, clearly visible, dressed in yellow, have continued to protest
nightly in Portland, and new groups have formed all across America.
