Portland, OR - Antifa anarchists with the Portland May Day march attacked police officers and destroyed property, prompting the city of Portland to pull the May Day march permit. All protesters were then told that the march was an unlawful assembly and they must leave.

The anarchists were throwing rocks, paint, glass bottles, and bombs at police officers as well as breaking windows and throwing objects at police cars.

Portland PD then told the crowd that they were subject to arrest and the use of force including riot control agents and impact weapons.

The crowd remained defiant, yelling at police and throwing more objects at them.

Officers started pushing the anarchists forward, and they grabbed everything that could burn near SW 3rd Ave and Morrison St and lit a bonfire in the intersection. The rioters were smashing store windows and throwing flares inside.

Then the asskicking came. Portland PD rushed forward, arrested three anarchists, and put out the fire. They kept pushing the crowd forward, arresting more and more anarchists along the way, until finally, there were no more anarchists left to riot.
