PostSubject: Patriot Prayer group vs Antifa: Clashes break out during competing protests in Portland   Mon Jun 04, 2018 12:55 am

Clashes broke out during competing protests in Portland, Ore., on Sunday, with left-wing activists squaring off with members of a right-wing organization on the city streets, sparking public warnings from local police.



Multiple rallies were planned in the city for Sunday, the first being an anti-police brutality rally, which was organized by Direct Action Alliance and Empower Portland at 2 p.m. local time.
The right-wing Patriot Prayer group was scheduled to begin at 5 p.m., and the self-described anti-fascist activists Antifa planned to counter-protest the group by joining with Direct Action Alliance and Empower Portland. 
The competing rallies resulted in clashes among hundreds of people, according to local media reports.

The Portland Police Department urged people to leave the area of the protests, citing the demonstrators' violent conduct.
"Officers have observed multiple fights at today’s events. People are encouraged to leave the area for their safety due to the violent behavior of demonstrators at Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman and Lownsdale Squares," the police department said in a tweet.

Pepper spray was reportedly used on numerous demonstrators, according to Portland's CBS affiliate. 
The protests come one-year after pro-Trump supporters clashed with counter-protesters in Portland, resulting in 14 arrests.
