Protests for September 29


A small group of protesters met at Laurelhurst Park near the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office’s (MCSO) Penumbra Kelly Building for the nightly demonstration. The group had lower numbers than usual, and in the past have elected to not march based on heightened safety concerns with a small group. However tonight was not one of those nights. Protesters arrived at the MCSO building around 9:40 pm after making the short march from Laurelhurst Park. With a small group and the police only coming out of MCSO sporadically throughout the night to make targeted arrests, it appeared that not a lot happened in between the footage journalists caught of protesters being arrested. A vehicle belonging to the Snack Mamas, a local mutual aid group, was towed by Portland Police early in the night and a total of 3 arrests were made later. By just after 1 am, most protesters had left the area and the last members of press decided to head home as well. All in all it was a slow protest night for the community.
