A small protest called #HimToo organized by the far-right group Patriot Prayer was met by hundreds of counter-protesters in Portland on Saturday, CBS Portland affiliate KOIN reports. The protests were meant to be peaceful, but clashes began as the groups started to disperse. Portland police said six people were arrested. Portland police tweeted around 5 p.m. PT that officers had observed demonstrators with weapons. "If demonstrators use weapons you are subject to citation, arrest and potentially use of force," Portland police tweeted. Police also reported glass bottles being thrown. Tear gas and explosives went off as the crowd marched through the streets chanting "Nazis, go home!" Police in riot gear arrived in various locations to keep the demonstrators on the sidewalks, KOIN reports. The Democratic Socialists of America on Portland held the first rally, which started around 11:30 a.m. Portland DSA tweeted they stand "with survivors and against oppressors.

On Thursday, after finishing a speech at the Oregon Health Forum in which he was heckled, Wheeler mumbled, “I can’t wait for the next 24 months to be over,” indicating he may not seek re-election. "If you know me, you know I mutter quite a bit,” Wheeler said in a statement issued later in the day. “Not one of my most redeeming qualities. I will make a decision next year with my family if I am running for re-election." In previous media interviews, Wheeler has complained about the job, calling it “no fun.” The comment came a day after the City Council rejected his proposal to expand his powers to regulate protests. At the same meeting, the first-term mayor criticized a half-dozen people who regularly attended the meetings and subjected Wheeler to taunts and jeers. Last month, Wheeler faced harsh criticism from a union that represents personnel from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding his handling of a 38-day protest in the city last summer by a group calling itself Occupy ICE. The National ICE Council sent letters to state Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking them to look into whether Wheeler committed m ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - On Saturday, November 17, 2018, during protest events near Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman Square Park, six people were arrested. The General Services Administration, the federal agency responsible for Terry Schrunk Plaza, approved a permit for a group to use the plaza today. As part of the General Services Administration permit, the permit holder had the authority to determine who could and could not enter the park while the permit was in effect. In preparation for today's permit, the Federal Protection Service erected fencing around the perimeter of Terry Schrunk Plaza. There was also a demonstration in Chapman Square today. Prior to today's events, PPB closed a portion of Chapman Square under Portland City Code 20.12.190(B). The area closure was an attempt to use an existing tool to facilitate a peaceful event while minimizing the opportunity for groups to clash violently. The intention of the closure of this portion provided a cushion between the two groups so differing opinions could be voiced, but the potential for violence reduced. During today's events, there were multiple assaults reported, as well as projectiles thrown at demonstrators and o ...

As large farms popped up across Oregon during the cannabis boom that followed the legalization of recreational marijuana, the state's landscape and economy changed. Oregon declined to limit the number of licenses when the state legalized cannabis, allowing an unlimited number of growers. Last fall, a bumper crop led to a sharp drop in prices that has rocked the industry. Prices have continued to fall, putting farmers out of business and cutting profits for those able to stay open. In an article in Cannabis Wire, an organic vegetable farmer details the ways in which Oregon's lax regulations on legal weed have put rural communities in economic and environmental distress. Melissa Mathewson interviewed farmers worried about pesticide and rodenticide runoff from inexperienced or careless cannabis grows primarily concerned with profits. "It's a Silent Spring moment in a sense," one farmer tells her, "because it is killing the entire trophic system in the forest." The reference to Rachel Carson's iconic indictment of industrial farms and the large-scale deployment of insecticide cuts to the heart of the farmers' concerns: Cannabis farmers may be damaging the environment and ...
