At least four people were arrested following clashes between antifascists and right-wing Patriot Prayer supporters in downtown Portland on Sunday, according to local reports. Hundreds of demonstrators and counterprotesters took to the streets, some of whom were wielding weapons such as pepper spray and bottles, leading to violence in the area near City Hall. «We came here to take a stand for... Еще freedom, since this is Portland, there's a lot of Communists, a lot of anti-freedom over here,» said Tusitala 'Tiny' Toese, a Patriot Prayer member. «There's people that are against our rights, so we came here to take a stand and we did.» Patriot Prayer claims to advocate 'freedom of speech' and to oppose the idea of 'big government'. The group supports US President Donald Trump and is known to back the second amendment.
