West Coast Political Violence
PORTLAND – A mile broke out Friday afternoon and a crowd of poeple gathered to participate in march for free speech in Portland, Oregon. Shortly after a group called Rose City Antifa showed up to counter the demonstration, several fights broke out that had to be broken up by other march-goers.
Leo Stratton, a writer for The Red Elephants was on the scene to document the congregation as he found him self in the middle of several skirmishes that left him with a taste of pepper spray which debilitated him momentarily. The freedom march was coordinated by Joey Gibson and his Prayer Patriots.
Stratton says that the march began peacefully enough until Rose city Antifa showed up and started to follow the group participating in the march, ultimately stealing one of the participant’s flags.
