Thousands surge into Portland, Oregon, to protest an alt-right rally held nine days after double stabbings in city train

Thousands surge into Portland, Oregon, to protest an alt-right rally held nine days after double stabbings in city trainAs officers in riot gear and bearing heavy arms strove to keep one side from advancing into the other, protestors from each flank of America’s bitter political divide took over adjacent parks in downtown Portland, Oregon, in a simmering and dangerous show of mutual disdain and anger. Tensions in a city known for progressive pride spiked as leaders of the alt-right movement began their promised rally as a few hundred followers waved flags and banners variously expressing faith in Donald Trump and defying the contrary message of anti-Trump protestors ranked outside the park – much larger in number – that they stood for racism and intolerance. After claiming provocation, officers moved to disperse a main body of protestors away from alt-right gathering using flash grenades and pepper bullets and swinging batons.
