Federal agents pepper sprayed photojournalist and veteran Vietnam War combat medic Mike Hastie during Portland protests over the weekend. Footage captured by video producer Andrew Kimmel shows Hastie being sprayed point-blank in the eyes. After being sprayed Hastie said, ‘Here, I’ll give you my card. Someone needs to get this on…on film [expletive]. I mean, really. That’s why I’m here.’
Some of Mike Hastie’s work can be found on the The Portland Alliance, an alternative progressive media source, which reports on issues that they describe as “ignored or distorted by the corporate-dominated mainstream press.”
Bruce K. Gagnon describes Hastie as “fierce and honest to the bone” and goes on to explain that Hastie was on the first Veterans For Peace delegation to Jeju Island, South Korea.
