US Portland protests continue in violence and clashes

As US protests against racism and injustice continue in Portland, Portland City Police building is set on fire.

Iran PressAmerica: A group of protesters in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday again took to streets to rally against racism and injustice in the US.

Part of the Portland City Police Department was set on fire during the protests.

Various US cities, including Portland, have been the scene of protests by police since May 25 against the racist behavior of the police.

Portland officials took steps this week to meet protesters’ demands, with the city council approving a November ballot measure to overhaul police oversight.

Many American cities have been the scene of protests since May 25, following the racist assassination of a black man named George Floyd.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly branded anti-racism protesters in the country as 'terrorists', and his promise to surge his paramilitary-style units from Portland to other Democrat-run cities in the coming weeks shows he is willing to employ the repressive tactics used by autocrats to vilify those who challenge them.
