PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland Police declared an out-of-control protest in downtown Portland a riot Saturday, and ordered everyone to leave the area immediately.
Authorities deployed flash bangs and tear gas as dueling protesters threw fireworks, eggs and other objects at each other.
The "Freedom and Courage" rally hosted by the right-wing Patriot Prayer group and its well-known leader, Joey Gibson, gathered at Terry Schrunk Plaza before taking to the streets. The group was granted a permit for the march, but police canceled it once violence ensued.
A heavy presence of antifa (antifascist) protesters gathered in the area for a "Defend PDX: Patriot Prayer's Violence Must End" rally. The protest, hosted by the Rose City Antifa, said "it is very important that antifascists keep up the pressure so that we can stop them once and for all," in reference to the far-right Patriot Prayer group.
For hours, the two groups mostly yelled at each other, but once the Patriot Prayer members mobilized the situation quickly spiraled into violence.
Joey Gibson, who is currently a U.S. Senate candidate for Washington, made a long speech to his group at Terry Schrunk Plaza before the march. Many Patriot Prayer members wore "Gibson for Senate" T-shirts while singing along to "We Will Rock You" by Queen at the rally.
Members of the Vancouver-based group arrived at Saturday's event on school buses.
