Counterprotesters Quell a Planned “Block Party” in Kenton Intended to Discourage RV and Car Campers
A post appeared Friday evening on the social media app Nextdoor in a group called “Protect Our Neighborhoods—PDX” announcing a block party intended to irritate people living in RVs and other vehicles on a North Portland street.
The post, from a woman who lives in the Kenton neighborhood, was a flyer for a Saturday afternoon event. She placed it in a Nextdoor group that has 303 members.
The flyer was adorned with cartoon houses and balloons. It read: “Block Party Saturday—make noise and discourage the new RVs. 1 pm this Saturday, bring snacks, drinks, chairs, loud instruments, stereos—let’s be loud and obnoxious for the campers and say hi to our neighbors while we do it.”
