Protests Expected in Downtown Portland on Sunday

Protests expected to take place Sunday in Portland

The Portland Police are warning of protests that are expected to take place in downtown Portland on the afternoon of Sunday, June 4. 

The intent of law enforcement is to provide a safe environment for all participants, non-participants, and community members while ensuring the peaceful exercise of the First Amendment. 

Sunday Afternoon Protests 

A planned event by one group is scheduled to take place in Terry Schrunk Plaza, located at 364 Southwest Madison Street.

There are other events involving different groups expected across Southwest 4th Avenue at City Hall, and across Southwest Madison Street at Chapman Square. 

There are no specific indicators that the events will disrupt traffic or transit flow, but the Bureau encourages road users to be aware of the potential and to plan for alternate routes. 

There will be a large law enforcement presence due to online threats of violence between different groups. 

"The Federal Protective Service stands with it partners within the Portland community to ensure the peaceful exercise of individual freedoms of demonstration and speech, while preserving and protecting the safety of all individuals on federal property," said Robert Sperling, Director of Communications and Engagement for the Federal Protective Service. 

Due to these threats and the potential for violence, people attending any of the events are discouraged from bringing any weapons (firearms, knives, etc.) or items that can be used as weapons (sticks, bats, poles, rocks, fireworks/incendiary devices, etc.) to any of the events. 

Prohibited items may be seized by police and, if in violation of city, state or federal law, the possessor may be arrested and charged criminally. 

Anyone with information about criminal behavior being planned at any of these events is asked to share it by email to [email protected].
