Overnight Sunday, authorities declared a riot in downtown Portland after a large group of violent demonstrators marched through the South Park Blocks, vandalizing and toppling statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

 

Rioters did not stop there as they broke windows at the Oregon Historical Society building in downtown Portland.

According to reports, protesters met under the Burnside Bridge and marched to the South Park Blocks for what they declared an “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.”

Allegedly, there were social media posts calling for an “end” of colonialism and for the abolishment of the police. Just before 9 p.m., on Sunday, October 11th, police tweeted that a “mass gathering” had formed at Southwest Park Avenue and Southwest Madison Street.

 

Police reported that the protesters were trying to pull down a statue with a chain.

Authorities warned the protesters that anyone involved in criminal behavior, including vandalism, was subject to arrest. The Oregonian reported that the organizers of the violent protest signaled their aggressive stance for the night calling for “direct action”.

In addition, the organizers demanded that the video live-streamers and photographers who have become staples of such events to stay away. People in the crowd were repeatedly told not to film. Individuals who passed by the destruction were ordered by demonstrators to stop filming or delete photographs.

 

The demonstrators were extremely violent towards those who were caught filming. In fact, an apartment resident had lasers shined at his eyes and a liquid thrown in his face when they saw him shooting a video of the scene from his terrace.

After downing the statues of Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, members in the crowd began smashing windows of local buildings.

The group hung a banner that said, “Stop honoring racist colonizer murders.” A mural on the Sovereign Hotel building depicting the Lewis & Clark expedition was splattered with red paint.

 

Video from the toppled statues shows that they had been vandalized with the words “Stolen Land” and “Murderer” spray-painted at their bases.

At 9:40 p.m., police declared a riot after getting additional reports of damage. They told the crowd to disperse immediately.

The group, nearly 200 strong, marched through downtown Portland, at one point occupying all four lanes of West Burnside Street. Most of the demonstrators were dressed in all black, from head-to-toe. Many wore body armor, carried shields, and wielded nightsticks or other weapons.

 

Authorities reported that 26 people were arrested by Portland police officers after protesters gathered outside the bureau’s North Precinct and blocked streets into the late hours on Saturday night. On that night, October 10th, the North Precinct was targeted again by violent protesters.

It has been targeted numerous times over the past 130-plus nights by violent protests, including some that devolved into riots, arson fires, and violent attacks on officers. The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) had been informed that the gathering on Saturday, October 10th as well as Sunday, October 11th were “direct action” events.

There were multiple warnings broadcast over the loudspeaker and social media by the PPB:

“To those who gathered near North Precinct, NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd is open to vehicular traffic. Immediately vacate the roadway and proceed to the sidewalk. Additionally, do not participate in criminal activity. Those who do not move off NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd will be subject to citation, arrest, or force.”

“If you remain in the roadway and show the intent to engage in physical resistance to removal, or if emergency circumstances require, you may be subject to the use of crowd control agents, including, but not limited to tear gas and impact weapons. Move to the sidewalk now.”

 

According to PPB, 26 people were arrested with charges including interfering with a peace officer, disorderly conduct in the second degree, resisting arrest, and carrying a concealed weapon.
