Riot Breaks Out In Portland As Antifa Activists Clash With Conservative Marchers
Riot Breaks Out In Portland As Antifa Activists Clash With Conservative Marchers

<p>Members of Antifa clashed with members of the conservative group Patriot Prayer Saturday evening in Portland, Ore., forcing police to declare that a riot was taking place as officers fired paintballs filled with tear gas into the crowd, according to the <a href="https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2018/06/portland_police_revoke_permit.html">Oregonian.</a></p>

<p><strong>Scuffles broke out shortly after 6 pm local time as Antifa protesters pelted marchers from the conservative  group with eggs, water bottles</strong> <strong>and firecrackers </strong>as the marchers spilled out into downtown Portland for their legally permitted march in support of a conservative Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate. The march followed an afternoon rally at Terry Schrunk Federal Plaza, <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/us-portland-protests-clashes/oregon-right-wingers-clash-with-anti-fascists-at-march-in-portland-idUSKBN1JR150">Reuters</a> reported.</p>

<p>Officers seized weapons like utility knives, clubs and chemical sprays from Antifa protesters as they gathered nearby for their counter-rally.</p>

<p>Portland police eventually made four arrests during the demonstrations - though they said none of them were related to the day's events. Four others had to be taken to the hospital after being struck by projectiles.</p>

<p>The hostilities started escalating around 4 pm local time, as busloads of Patriot Prayer protesters arrived at Terry Schrunk Federal Plaza, while members of Antifa gathered for a counter-demonstration at Chapman Square, directly across the street.</p>

<script async="" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script><p><strong>There were roughly 150 Patriot Prayer protesters while the Antifa protesters numbered at least twice that.</strong> Still, the dueling protests were a fraction of an earlier march in support of immigrant families separated at the border, part of a wave of marches that unfolded in cities across the US. Nearly 5,000 people attended that event.</p>

<p><strong>Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson, the organizer of the rally, said during a  rally that he wanted to "bring light into a city that's full of darkness".</strong> He bashed Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown. Gibson is one of 13 candidates running for the GOP nomination to face off against Democratic Washington Senator Maria Cantwell.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/zerohedge/feed/~4/1bXkZLFmu6I" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
