Protests for July 2


Every Thursday, the family of Patrick Kimmons gathers to call for justice in his 2018 death from being shot by Portland Police officers while running away. This week about 30 people gathered at the North Precinct for a rally, then marched along MLK.

The evening protest at the Justice Center began with fireworks. About 250 people rallied at the front of the building, then moved toward the Federal Courthouse a block over after some fireworks in front of the building brought police and US Marshals out, who then began shooting pepper balls.

At 11:55 PM they declared this gathering to be a riot, then used munitions to push people west toward SW Broadway. After arrests, they returned back to the Justice Center area, and protesters followed not long after. Around 12:40 AM tear gas was used outside the Federal Courthouse. A smaller group of protesters remained there past 3 AM, with police periodically shooting pepper balls and other munitions toward the gathering.
