Global News published this video item, entitled “Portland protests: Tensions between police, demonstrators continue on 100th consecutive protest day” – below is their description.
Demonstrators gathered in Portland on Saturday night for the 100th consecutive night of protests against police violence and anti-Black racism. While protesters had originally planned to demonstrate outside a local police precinct, they were debarred from that area of the city by officers in riot gear who shortly thereafter declared the assembly a riot and ordered them to disperse. Tear gas and other nonlethal munitions were subsequently deployed against the protesters, some of whom were taken into custody by officers. The protests began earlier in the year in response to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arberry, though additional incidents like the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis. and Daniel Prude in Rochester, N.Y., have led to increased tensions between police and protesters in Portland as well as other cities.
