December 29 Protest – Remember Wounded Knee


On the 130th anniversary of the Wounded Knee Massacre, protesters begin a remembrance demonstration in front of the Justice Center downtown.

Protesters then move to the ICE facility in Southwest Portland.

Just before 10 pm federal officers make an announcement to protesters over their loudspeakers warning that those who trespass on federal property are subject to arrest.

A line of officers come out to stand in front of protesters but quickly go back inside the facility after a few minutes.

Around 11:05 pm federal officers reemerge and appear to make a targeted arrest.

The individual who was arrested is promptly released.

Officers rush out once again to confront a group of about 5 protesters.
