Residents and leaders in Portland are bracing for what could be violent clashes over the weekend.


Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was joined by dozens of local groups on Wednesday to send a message ahead of expected demonstrations in the city this weekend: 'violence and hate have no place here.'

Residents and leaders in Portland are bracing for what could be violent clashes over the weekend.

Portland police have said they attempted to make contact with the event organizers, but it is unclear if they were successful.

The police have also released a map showing that there are a number of peaceful events planned for Portland on Saturday - including the Portland Hot Sauce Expo, an adult soapbox derby and the Oregon Bigfoot Festival - in addition to the alleged protests in the center of the city.

That’s a joke, right? Portland doesn’t care if violence and hate is done to anyone on the right or someone would have been arrested for the attack on Andy Ngo by now. Even when they have video and a group of people taking responsibility for it. Except for Antifa, Portland loves them some Antifa Hahaha that’s pretty rich coming from a guy that protects antifa with his police force

I wouldn’t be surprised if Mayor Wheeler moonlights as Antifa. Wink Wink Ngo will show up again and claim he was assaulted by a milkshake. Then conservative news outlets will cry foul for days. Just filth and anarchy. Got it. People coming to a place that strongly disagrees with its agenda is not a peaceable assembly. If you go looking for trouble, the authorities are empowered to prevent it.

Unless they are practiced by those on the left against conservatives and this president. Then this mayor and others like him in his party and in the news media. Don't have a problem with it !

Portland leaders send unified message ahead of Proud Boys rally: Stay homePortland officials to far-right activists and anti-fascist supporters who plan to protest in the city this weekend: Anyone 'using the guise of free speech to commit acts of violence' is not welcome in the city. How is this happening in 2019? Oh, I remember now. lol Lol....the city is run by antifascumbags

What he saying is violence has a place here in the form of antifa and if you come here you're not welcome That settles it. He's in favor of love and peace Portland is a shithole. I hope the police stay safe. Why doesn't he ever tell that to antifa any other weekend? Actually they don’t really care Portland has been a hot bed for white supremacy some Oregon became a thing.

Send in the national guard asap Wow wheeler condemned Antifa. Good for him.

She should be happy with Russian police, French police aren't that soft. gilletjaunes
