International socialist event cancelled after threatening messages

Portland, OR:

An event on climate change and capitalism at Portland State University was cancelled on Thursday, 24 January 2019 after a number of threatening messages were posted on social media by known Proud Boys members. The university chose to cancel the event rather than risk a potentially violent incident. The cancellation follows a number of instances of violence linked to Proud Boys members in the Portland area over the past week.  (SOURCE: https://twitter.com/itsmikebivins/status/1088627043082747904).
