Over 1K Protesters Gather In Downtown Portland

(Portland, OR)  --  More than one-thousand protesters took to downtown Portland again last night for the 62nd straight night of demonstrations against systemic racism in law enforcement.  The Oregonian reports demonstrations remained relatively peaceful and calm until early this morning, when someone allegedly set off a series of fireworks.  That prompted federal officers to deploy tear gas on the crowd.  Protesters have been demonstrating against police brutality every night in Portland since late May in response to the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
