Riots erupted in downtown and Portland police used flash bang grenades to break up a fight between Antifa and the Labor Against Fascist group who attacked the Patriot Prayer group, while they were waiting for a bus.  Originally, Police set up barricades separating the groups.  Then, Portland police removed the barricades, Antifa protesters pelted marchers from the conservative  group with eggs, water bottles and firecrackers as the marchers spilled out into downtown Portland for their legally permitted march.  Portland police then revoked the rally permit and declared it a riot.  Four people were arrested, including ‘Tiny’, a member of Patriot Prayer.

Members of Antifa clashed with members of the conservative group Patriot Prayer Saturday evening in Portland, Ore., forcing police to declare that a riot was taking place as officers fired paintballs filled with tear gas into the crowd, according to the Oregonian.

Scuffles broke out shortly after 6 pm local time as Antifa protesters pelted marchers from the conservative  group with eggs, water bottles and firecrackers as the marchers spilled out into downtown Portland for their legally permitted march in support of a conservative Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate. The march followed an afternoon rally at Terry Schrunk Federal Plaza, Reuters reported.

Officers seized weapons like utility knives, clubs and chemical sprays from Antifa protesters as they gathered nearby for their counter-rally.

Portland police eventually made four arrests during the demonstrations – though they said none of them were related to the day’s events. Four others had to be taken to the hospital after being struck by projectiles.
