Protests for September 18


On Friday night, protesters marched to the ICE building in the South Waterfront neighborhood, in response to news about medical and reproductive abuse of ICE detainees in Georgia. At about 9:30 PM, federal agents guarding the building rushed the protesters and made arrests. They used smoke and impact munitions to push the group to the north. Portland police then announced an unlawful assembly over their LRAD speaker. Federal agents retreated a short distance, then began firing pepper balls and flash bang grenades, as well as tear gas. Portland police then made several arrests. Protesters regrouped at the ICE building, where they sang and danced in the street, interrupted by federal agents who again rushed the group, using more munitions. The protest wound down after 1 AM.
