Riots: 3 Places All Hell Has Broken Loose In The Last Few Days

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

A lot of people like to think that the SHTF is some distant thing that probably won’t ever happen. But, in reality, it happens every single day, someplace in the world. Riots have occurred all over the world recently, stranding travelers, destroying property, and causing serious injuries and death.

Here are 3 different places where all hell has broken loose in just the past few days.

Haiti

It’s a bad time to be in Haiti right now. Apparently, an increase in gasoline prices has caused people to take to the street. A number of American missionaries are currently hunkering down in fear for their lives. They’re unable to get out of the country because many airlines have canceled all flights in and out of the country.

Savannah Peek, a missionary with a team from Richmond County, North Carolina, told WSOC said they are terrified for their lives…

…“We heard gunshots start and they were very close,” said Peek. “At this point, we all dropped immediately to the ground. We’re all on our hands and knees. Everyone’s screaming, everyone’s crying.”

Peek said guns were handed out to civilians for protection.

“People started passing out guns to civilians because we thought the (men) were about to break in and rob us, kill us, start a fire. We had no idea,” she said. (source)

The US Embassy in Haiti issued the following alert:

Due to continuing demonstrations, roadblocks, and violence across Port-au-Prince and throughout Haiti, U.S. citizens should continue to shelter in place.  Do not travel to the airport unless you confirmed your flight is departing.  Flights are canceled today and the airport has limited food and water available.

Telecommunications services, including Internet and phone lines, have been affected throughout Haiti.  It may be difficult to reach people through normal communication methods.

U.S. Embassy personnel are still under a shelter-in-place order.  The embassy will continue to monitor the situation.

The U.S. Embassy will be closed for routine services Monday July 9.  Non-emergency appointments will be rescheduled for a later date.  The Embassy remains open for emergency U.S. citizen services.

Actions to take:

  • Shelter in place. Do not attempt to travel at this time.
  • Avoid protests and any large gathering of people.
  • Do not attempt to drive through roadblocks.
  • If you encounter a roadblock, turn around and get to a safe area.
  • Let family and friends know if you are safe. (source)

Here’s some shocking video footage of the riots.

France

In Nantes, a city in France, a battle has been going on between African migrants and the French police for days now, after the police shot a 22-year-old migrant named Aboubakar Fofana. The riots went on for 4 days but eased when relatives of the Aboubakar Fofana said they were filing a lawsuit.

Initially, police said that the victim was shot because he tried to run over a police officer with a car. Later, they admitted the shooting was in fact NOT self-defense, but an accident.

The worst of riots looked like a war between police and migrants.

Ouest-France reports:

The police forces were deployed massively in the neighborhoods of the rioters. They fired Molotov cocktails at Breil and Bellevue and responded with tear gas grenades.

In total, 35 vehicles were burned. To prevent a resurgence of fires, since last night, Friday, July 6, the Region has banned the retail sale of fuel and fireworks.

In the Breil district, the beginning of a fire hit a building of the Nantes Habitat social landlord. The damage, however, seems small: except for some traces of fire near the building, only a window is barred by a sign; the building is intact.

“Put your weapons, gang of assassins” or “you are going to be afraid in your houses” are the slogans that were launched to the CRS came to reinforcement in the districts. (source)

According to Zero Hedge, things are only going to get worse in France.

The  GEFIRA team expect riots in France to become more and more violent and eventually lethal. Like most Western European societies and the US, the demographic change and the gradual replacement will come with a hefty price.

There are signs that white French bourgeoisie youth will join the violent protests, like Black bloc and Antifa. (source)

Here’s some video footage of the chaos in Nantes.

Portland

And right here in the United States, violent riots have erupted over the Trump administration, political differences, and immigration policies. Portland has been the heart of many political movements since the election of President Trump, starting the day after the election in which Hillary Clinton suffered a surprise loss.

The riots in the city have been going on for the past couple of months, with some particularly heated moments occurring in early July. A Patriot Prayer rally turned violent when members of Antifa showed up and began pelting them with firecrackers, eggs, and water bottles.

The counterprotesters were identified as the Eugene Antifa, who named their demonstration“Defend PDX: Patriot Prayer’s Violence Must End.”

“It is very important that antifascists keep up the pressure so that we can stop them once and for all,” a Facebook event page for the counterprotest read.

“While many acolytes have broken away from Gibson at this point, the core that remains, largely Proud Boys, have grown increasingly violent,” the page said. “For this reason we must sustain our campaign, and keep up our efforts on as many fronts as possible until they completely cease their despicable activity.” (source)

The demonstrators didn’t hesitate to fight back and police used firecrackers, smoke bombs, flash bangs and “aerial distraction in an attempt to disperse the crowd.

This isn’t the first time the groups have gone head to head. They also became violent toward one another in early June and previously, in 2017. Below is a video of what some people are calling “The Battle of Portland.”

What can we learn from all this?

I’m all for protesting and demonstrating against things that are unjust. The right to peaceful protest is written right into the American constitution.

But what we can all learn from this is how quickly something that starts out as a peaceful protest can be disrupted and turned into a violent riot. It can happen anywhere, at any time, and if you are unfortunate enough to be nearby, it can be a life-threatening emergency in some cases.

Here are the things to remember:

  • Learn to watch the signs and foresee when violence is about to erupt so you can get yourself and your family safely away.

  • Make a plan to keep your family safe during times of civil unrest if it should occur near your home. (This article can help.)

  • Avoid situations that are likely to become violent.

  • Remember that fire is one of the most common weapons used in a riot.

  • If you are traveling when violence erupts, plan to hunker down. Contact the American Embassy for help. DO NOT go to the airport unless you know for sure your flight is definitely taking off.

  • Remember that the police and military may be every bit as violent as the crowd and will not have time to differentiate between you and a protester.

  • If you’re caught in a crowd, move diagonally to get yourself out of the masses. Hold on to children so that you do not get separated.

The best thing you can do is avoid trouble. The second best thing you can do is know how to handle it if trouble comes to you.

What can we learn from all this?

The police are super-nice compared to my day.  In my day they would have lined up in force, marched down the street and stomped the living shit out of anyone who got in their way.  Are the police snowflaky too now?

This was the case in Charlottesville also.  The police there were behind barricades and mostly unwilling to come out from behind them.  We all know that job#1 for today's cops is to go home at the end of their shift.

As this pattern emerges interesting possibilities emerge with it.  It means the country is wide open for the taking.  It means there is nothing but memory of order standing between us and a revolution.  It means the patriots had better get their shit together because a fight is coming.

And with all of the federal agent skullduggery going on, it is largely going on in safe office environments, and these pussies would never in a million years risk injury, let alone their lives, fighting for a constitutional republic.  Can you see bureaucrats like Peter Strzok or Lisa Page defending a battlement?  ME NEITHER.

Put it all together and it is actionable intelligence.

There’s yet another safety tip: they will only act in areas where they have cover from friendly local government. 

It’s cool to imagine how a riot would play out if a conservative told his city’s cops to get away from the scene.

Here’s the thing about that: it’ll never happen. A) our guys are on a moral footing theirs think morality is dated and just for idiots. When they finally destroy the great Satan then they will achieve utopia.

The fact of the matter is that society is held together by good manners - not riot police and laws. Those are for the people that are without good manners.

Once the number of mannerless people reaches a certain percentage, nothing can keep society together. The illusion is that law and law enforcement are the glue that keeps society together but the reality is that they only address the fringe elements in society. Once the fringe becomes the mainstream, it's all over.

If men were angels there would be no need for gov't....so sans govt it would be survival of the fittest? You would not want to be vying for life and liberty against me in a jungle scenario - I can promise you that much.

I don't like the gov't we have now, that is now what I am saying. I hate the big govt we have now. Do keep slinging down arrows tho

Yup. Law is selectively enforced by the dictates of the executive. The Chief of Police doesn't like a law - they can make it clear that it's not to be enforced. If the DA won't prosecute cases, then enforcement becomes pointless paperwork.

And let's not forget the legal climate. The police get sued left and right. That tends to make you risk-adverse.

IT is what I've been saying since 2006 when I first laid eyes on Ofaggot...I knew it was coming then, only a matter of time. I've seen it before, up close and personal, it was hell on earth. Civil war is anything but civil.

I am as ready as I will ever be, so all I gotta say to the communist left is "Come Get You Some!"

What the hell is this thing with the police hiding behind a fence shooting paintballs?  Are they all to close to retirement or is it that they know their pension fund is insolvent? Obviously they have no control. Sell off those million dollars worth of military equipment because they obviously won't use it for anything other than hiding behind when the next school FF shooting occurs.

Better to always travel in convoy with a Stryker Brigade.

Be very afraid, everyone. The sky is falling,the world is ending. Buy your shtf products here! Hurry, before we sell out!

30 years ago, young white french boys, at around 12-15 years old, would sneak out of their houses at night and cause mayhem for entertainment purposes. Basically feral, out-of-control nice white, middle-class kids. Marseille - hot summer nights, setting fire to rubbish, and then throwing rocks at the fire brigade, when they arrived. Such fun! (I never did nuffink, ''onest, Guv!"). 

I'm not sure that as a 12 year old I would venture out into Marseille streets at night, should I have that opportunity again. 30 years ago it was mad - now I would probably end up raped and strangled, and that would be the fun part. Plus sa change plus c'est la meme chose, or not, as they say in Germany.

And always carry at least 100 rounds of loaded ammo with your concealed along with a few hundred in the vehicle for reload.

 

Review this:  http://www.shtfplan.com/images/media/Nuevo_Laredo_Cartel_Gun_Battle.pdf

These guys are driving around with rifles, wearing web gear with radios and 6 reloads, 4 to a truck.  Don't show up to a gunfight with 100 rounds.

Sobering pics, thanks for the link and heads up...looks like I have a bit more prepping to do, not a whole lot, but I see now I need a few things.

I have seen civil war up close and personal, it is hell on earth. Got the deep scars to remind me too.

Things have changed just a bit since those days.

EDIT - now I for sure know why we are being invaded from the south. Foot soldiers.

You would shit your panties if you knew what I have seen and been through. It's okay, laugh now while you can, no skin off my back, sister!

All I do is warn, but you think it's all a big fucking joke. I would love to see your face when the shit goes down, it won't be a laughing matter then.

Go ahead laugh some more, down vote me, and post some more inane drivel. It is getting close now! Smug asshats like you won't last long.
