Ok here’s my thread for #AllOutPDX today #Portland
Proud Boys / Patriot Prayer kicked out of parking lot in Vancouver WA by property owners.

Russell Schultz of Patriot Prayer says they’ll march outside Portland waterfront park today because they don’t want to be subjected to police search.

So it’s noon in #portland and right now police are keeping the two sides separated. Hundreds of Anti-fascist counter-protesters with a brass band look across the street at Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer. More PBs and PP on their way. #AllOutPDX
Chants of “Union workers here to say, Nazi thugs not your day!” #AllOutPDX
Ok here we go: cops issue dispersal order to counter-protesters because they’ve “spotted people with weapons.” Say failure to disperse will lead to arrest and use of “impact weapons” and “riot control weapons.”

Protesters aren’t moving.
Two sides are walking on parallel sides of the street. Cops follow inbetween. Blocking traffic. Unclear where PB/PP are going. #AllOutPDX
A couple signs. #AllOutPDX
Anti-fascists have chanted the names of Ricky Best and Taliesin Namkai-Meche, two men killed by white supremacist Jeremy Christian last year.

Christian had once attended a Patriot Prayer rally.
Charlottesville was a pro-Trump rally. So is this. #AllOutPDX
Chants of #abolishICE in #Portland by counter-protesters. #AllOutPDX
Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer on the move along the river. Anti-fascists follow from across the steeet. Cops running inbetween.
Hundreds of anti-fascists marching through Portland now. Every time they try to cut over to the river to confront Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys, cops cut them off.
This “Racists Can’t Dance” truck just showed up
Cops have deployed insanely loud flash bangs and pepper spray at anti-fascists.
Note the explosive at the end of this video. That’s what cops are firing to disperse anti-fascists.
Things not good. One arrest I’ve seen.
After I took this video an anti-fascist was hit with some kind of projectile shot by cops. He seems fine. Cat and mouse game between cops and anti-fascists in Portland right now.
Police have declared a “civil disturbance” and are ordering both sides to disperse or face arrest or riot control agents and impact weapons.”

“All people must disperse.” #AllOutPDX
Hearing reports of multiple injuries. Someone hit by a flash bang. Things cooling at the moment but might get crazy again.
Tusitala 'Tiny' Toese, a Proud Boy/Patriot Prayer dude implicated in multiple assaults in the Portland area, thinks police did a great job today.
Large group of Proud Boys walking through downtown Portland
Joey Gibson and Tiny leading large group of Proud Boys / Patriot Prayer to their cars / buses through downtown #Portland
Guy with Patriot Prayer / Proud Boys yells at anti-fascists: “is there something in the water that makes you all faggots?”
And we’ve ended up under a bridge where cops rushed in to separate Proud Boys from anti-fascists
Ok thanks for following along y’all - things have quieted down. gonna keep an eye on things but for now am gonna go have a couple drinks and file a story w @AndyBCampbell.
Forgot to post this earlier: I asked Proud Boy/Patriot Prayer member Tusitala ‘Tiny’ Toese about his PINOCHET WAS RIGHT t-shirt.

“Didn’t Pinochet kill like 35,000 people?” I asked him.

“Aren’t they all communists?” he responded. #AllOutPDX
Ok, here's me and @AndyBCampbell's dispatch from a crazy day in Portland.…
