Demonstrators injured security guards at Portland City Hall on Wednesday, as they were attempting to protest police brutality due to certain crowd control techniques that were implemented by police during a counterdemonstration on Saturday.
The protesters sought to disrupt a Portland City Council meeting, but the demonstrators did not prompt the city council to address police brutality as intended. The meeting was recessed after members of the audience started chanting “end police brutality.”

During the protests, a security guard was hit on the head multiple times with a megaphone by a protester clad in a mask and baseball helmet. Additionally, City Hall security chief Dorothy Elmore was hit on her arm by a demonstrator.
