The actions just god on and ON…and ON in these cities….
A group of protesters carrying anti-President Joe Biden and anti-police signs were marching Wednesday in Portland, Oregon, streets and damaged the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Oregon, police said.
Some in the group of about 150 people smashed windows and spray-painted anarchist symbols at the political party building. Multiple arrests were made in the area, police said. Some demonstrators carried a sign reading, “We don’t want Biden, we want revenge!” in response to “police murders” and “imperialist wars.”
Police said on Twitter that officers on bicycles had entered the crowd to contact someone with a weapon and to remove poles affixed to a banner that they thought could be used as a weapon.
Police said the crowd swarmed the officers and threw objects at the officers, who used a smoke canister to get away.
The group was one of at least four planning to gather in the city on Inauguration Day, police said. A car caravan in the city celebrated the transition of presidential power and urged policy change, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. Another group was gathering around 5 p.m. in Northeast Portland with speakers talking about police brutality.
