Event

Police reportedly clashed with protesters in Portland (Oregon) early Saturday, July 18, following a series of downtown protests. Several demonstrators were arrested during the clashes, with authorities alleging that suspects blocked exits to the county justice center and launched fireworks and projectiles. Police responded by firing tear gas to disperse the group of around 200 demonstrators. The recent protests have predominantly been associated with the Black Lives Matter movement, although this particular protest was reportedly over the arrest of demonstrators in recent days.

A heightened security presence is anticipated in the vicinity of the government building. Further protests likely.
