Protests for June 27


Saturday afternoon, PDX Stripper Strike led a march across the Hawthorne Bridge, ending with dancing at Waterfront Park. Along the way, they stopped outside the Golden Dragon strip club to speak about their demands and the harm Black dancers have experienced.

Protesters gathered outside the Justice Center at dusk, building a barricade across SW 3rd and Main St. Around 10:30 PM, the police declared it an unlawful assembly and began shooting tear gas and impact munitions. People with ties to local White supremacist organizations spent much of the day sharing violent threats against BLM protestors on social media. When they attempted to attack protestors around 11:30, the agitators were pushed away from protestors and entered a 7-Eleven. These agitators were escorted away from the area by police.

Police continued to fire gas and other munitions at groups of protesters for the next few hours. At least one significant injury was reported.
