Four injured, 13 arrested at Portland right wing rally

FOUR people were injured and thirteen arrested as over 1,000 right-wing demonstrators and counter-protesters descended on downtown Portland on Saturday.

“We are aware of four individuals who have been evaluated by Portland Fire medics,” Portland Police said in a statement.

Reports say that one person had been taken to a hospital and that all known injuries are considered to be minor.

The city has been bracing for several militant right-wing groups to arrive in the city, along with scores of counter-protesters.

Members of other far-right extremist groups, including the American Guard, the Three Percenters, and the Daily Stormers, were also expected to attend in the hopes of declaring militant leftists, or anti-fascists known as “anitfa,” a domestic terrorist group.

One right-wing militia group, Oath Keepers, disavowed the rally for fear of being associated with white supremacists.
