Anarchist Black Bloc Protests Portland Police Shootings
March 30, 2010
A group of protesters marched through downtown Portland last night, expressing anger at Portland police in connection with a pair of police-involved shootings in recent months.
By 8 p.m., police had taken at least four protesters into custody at various locations as the group wound its way through downtown.
The group, calling itself Black Bloc, first gathered about 5 p.m.in the South Park Blocks, near Southwest Salmon Street and Park Avenue. Protesters then began marching toward the Willamette River, chanting slogans and carrying signs.
About 200 people took part, many of them wearing masks.
One of the most common chants was "Cops, pigs, murderers" while another was "When cops attack, stand up, fight back."
The protest was just the latest of several that have happened in Portland in connection with two recent police shootings.
