Pitting Us Against Each Other

Somewhere along the line I missed that disability activists sued the City of Portland under the Americans With Disabilities Act for permitting the unhoused to camp on city sidewalks. Apparently there is some sort of tentative settlement in the offing, and really I just wanted to mention that this is the sort of maladaptive shit that capital does to us. The disabled and the unhoused (many of whom are both) aren’t enemies, and ought to be allies. Sideshows like this are antithetical anathema to the work of building solidarity and capacity.
