Portland protests: American flags burned in the streets, no clashes with police

Protesters set fires in the streets of Portland, Oregon, early Saturday, but no clashes with authorities were reported.

Recently, federal agents withdrew from the city under a deal between Oregon’s governor and U.S. officials to end a deployment that saw escalating violence and a clash between Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic mayors over the use of federal force in their cities.

Trump sent federal forces to confront what he called a “beehive of terrorists” who had lit fires and broken windows at the Portland courthouse since late May when protests against police violence began after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Portland officials said they took steps this week to meet protesters’ demands, with the city council approving a November ballot measure to overhaul police oversight.

    The police got orders to stand down. So of course they didnt clash. Defunding the police brings in the millitary which is great for Israel.
