Protests for August 24


On Monday, protesters gathered at Arbor Lodge Park for a march to the Portland Police Association building, in solidarity with the people of Kenosha, WI. Protesters hung a banner on the building, and a small fire was started next to one of the exterior walls. Shortly after arrival, the gathering was declared a riot by police and a series of dispersal and arrest actions took place. Protesters were pushed, then withdrew and regrouped outside the building. Tear gas was used by the police multiple times. Videos show police assaulting reporters with clear “Press” markings on their helmets and vests, as well as violently hitting and shoving protesters. The protest continued until after 2 AM.
