Portland protesters light fires, smash downtown windows; police declare riot

https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/2021/04/protesters-shatter-downtown-portland-windows-police-declare-riot.html

"A group of protesters in downtown Portland lit fires, smashed the windows of businesses, a church and the Oregon Historical Society, and caused other various damage during a destructive demonstration Friday night and early Saturday.

Someone also fired several gunshots from a car traveling a block away from the protest crowd early Saturday. No one was hurt.

Police declared the demonstration a riot late Friday, marking the third time in five days the bureau had made such an announcement. Officers arrested at least four people amid the melee that had drawn several hundred people, the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement just before 2 a.m. Saturday."

2. Portland protestors need to get organized, at this point take their complaints to state, local

And federal officials and out the streets.
The endless protesting accomplishes nothing, in fact it is probably harming their cause at this point, and god forbid...someone is going to get hurt.
