Antifa activists stormed a Portland, Ore., rally by the right-wing group Patriot Prayer Sunday, sparking a violent confrontation that saw punches thrown and bottles hurled and ended only when police in riot gear moved in.
The pro-President Trump group, led by Joey Gibson, organized a rally — “Tiny’s Freedom March,” to honor a member. But the event drew a counter-protest from Patriot Prayer’s nemesis, Antifa, whose members arrived wearing their trademark black.
The article goes on to state the following:
Witnesses said members of Patriot Prayer attempted to drown out the counter-protest by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
The dueling rallies in Terry Schrunk Plaza, a swath of federal land in downtown Portland, escalated with shoving, punches thrown and at least one fire set on the Antifa side. Portland police sought to break up fights and separate the groups. Officers with the Federal Protective Service and a Multnomah County sheriff’s deputy used pepper spray twice, as demonstrators threw fireworks, bottles, rocks and ball bearings at each other, The Oregonian reported.
Officers have observed participants at today’s events at Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman and Lownsdale Square participate in assaultive behavior.
