USA: Hundreds rally in Oakland in support of Portland protests

Hundreds of people in Oakland took part on Saturday in a solidarity march with Portland protesters, after federal agents were deployed there following orders from the White House. Protesters in Oakland marched to the city's police station, chanting “Whose streets? Our streets.” The entrance door to the police station was seen damaged. «There's been some 50 days and nights and days in Portland which has been really, really inspiring. Now the fascists in the White House have sent federal troops there and they called on people in every city across the country to come out against this,» said a protester. Portland has been rocked by a wave of protests and unrest ever since demonstrations against racism and police brutality started a couple of months ago, with episodes of violence on the rise ever since federal agents were deployed by US President Donald Trump to tackle the incidents. The White House has defended the use of force against protesters and accused local authorities of having «lost control» of the city.
