Friday morning, Don’t Shoot PDX presented their report, “Riot Control Agents: Systemic Reassessment of Adverse effects on Health, Mental Stability, and Social Inequities“. That evening, a new agreement was filed on their temporary restraining order against the city, further restricting the use of crowd control munitions until July 24.
At a press conference, Police Chief Lovell claimed that the Thursday night protesters at the North Precinct nailed doors shut, barricading people inside, while a fire was started outside the building. This claim is not backed up by reports from protesters or press who were there.
The scheduled Abolish ICE protest march led people to a rally with speeches in Terry Schrunk Plaza, a block from the Justice Center. About 500 attended.
Protesters gathered at the Justice Center, forming groups in the nearby park and streets surrounding the building throughout the evening. Police sporadically emerged from the building to shoot at them. One protester left by ambulance after being struck. Another was taken to the hospital for care after a bb from one of these shots lodged in their eye cavity.
Early in the morning, police attempted to break up the gathering, chasing and attacking protesters.
