Portland police cleared out a protest that had been building overnight in the Pearl District, outside leftist Mayor Ted Wheeler’s apartment. The protest group, Care Not Cops, began setting up camp and demonstrating the morning that Portland City Council was voting on the 2020-21 city budget, which cut $15-million from the police bureau. By midnight, the group grew into hundreds of protesters that were blocking off streets with dumpsters, plywood, fencing and other materials. Just after 5:30 a.m. police declared an unlawful assembly and started to clear the scene where only 50 protesters were left. -GEG

Protesters with the group Care Not Cops had set up outside Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s Pearl District apartment to demand more police cuts.

Portland police early Thursday morning cleared out a protest that had been building overnight in the Pearl District, outside Mayor Ted Wheeler’s apartment.

“I live here, and these are my neighbors,” he said. “And I’m sure they’re not very happy this morning. They’re probably not very excited to be my neighbors at the moment. So I’m out here doing my part.”

The protest group Care Not Cops began the demonstration Wednesday morning as Portland City Council was set to vote on the 2020-21 city budget, which cuts $15 million from the police bureau. The budget vote passed just after noon on Wednesday.

Protesters say the cuts are not enough, and they’re calling for defunding the Portland Police Bureau to the tune of $50 million. Commissioner Chloe Eudaly also called for $50 million in cuts and voted against the budget. But Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, who championed most of the cuts, said Wednesday that number is not based on any rational analysis of the full Portland budget.
