(Portland, OR)  --  Portland police are mobilizing this weekend to prevent clashes between out-of-state far-right groups and the homegrown anti-fascists who oppose them.  Portland leaders are planning a major law enforcement presence for Saturday's rally on the heels of similar events that turned violent, and the recent hate-driven shooting in El Paso, Texas.  The rally is being organized by a member of the Proud Boys, who have been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.  Being that PPD are expecting counter-protestors, none of the city's nearly one-thousand police officers will have the day off, and Portland will get help from the Oregon State Police and the FBI.
