More information, photos, and videos about the violent attacks at the latest downtown Portland Antifa takeover were released over the weekend.
One photo of a bloodied man was accompanied with the following caption from photojournalist Moriah Ratner: “The Rose City Antifa brutally attacks an unidentified right aligning man at Pioneer Courthouse Square on June 29, 2019 in Portland, Oregon. Several groups from the left and right clashed after competing demonstrations at Pioneer Square, Chapman Square, and Waterfront Park spilled into the streets. According to police, medics treated eight people and three people were arrested during the demonstrations.”
Caleb Howe at Blaze Media reported that “the caption from the photojournalists at Getty verifies the story told on Twitter, that an older man, seemingly from the right politically, was beaten bloody by Antifa.
Howe added that the footage, “which speaks for itself when it comes to the question of chaos -- make that anarchy -- on the streets of this modern American city,” shows a protestor hitting the man in the face with a crowbar. “Other people are punching him, punching other people, stealing backpacks, as an utter riot atmosphere grips the crowd.”
This is only the latest Antifa protest in downtown Portland. Despite the increasing violence, however, the mayor — and even many police — have turned a blind eye to it.
