Protests for September 24


On Thursday morning, protesters gathered downtown at City Hall for the weekly Justice for Patrick Kimmons event. Patrick’s mother, Letha Winston, led the group in chants.

Thursday evening, about 100 direct action protesters gathered at Arbor Lodge Park in North Portland to march to the Portland Police Association building. Activists stood outside the building giving speeches until an unlawful assembly was declared at about 10:30 PM, after a small fire was set outside the building. Riot police then cleared the group away from the building, making several arrests. Police left after inspecting the building, then returned for more arrests. At about 12:30 AM police left again and the protest thinned out, eventually ending around 1 AM.
