Protests for September 22


On Tuesday, the weekly Kid-Centered March for Black Lives gathered over a hundred participants for speeches and a neighborhood march in SE Portland. In the evening, direct action protesters marched from Laurelhurst Park to the Penumbra Kelly building on E Burnside Ave, where the Portland police and Multnomah County Sheriffs Officers are located. After speeches and dancing, many protesters left around midnight without interacting with the police. At about 12:30 AM, three activists were arrested on trespassing charges, two of whom had confronted someone who pulled a gun on them earlier in the evening. No details were available about the shots fired that are reported by PPB as being related to protest attendees.
