Rioters in Portland Attack and Burn the Police Association Building

On Saturday, July 18, the Police Association office was set on fire amid demonstrations throughout the city. People in the crowds threw rocks, gopher gassers, and launched paint filled balloons at officers, injuring some officers. People also removed fencing around the Federal Courthouse and used it to barricade its doors.

This is in the midst of six weeks of fighting against the police. Demonstrations have been centered around the Federal Courthouse in Portland. Revolutionaries have not been deterred by tear gas or the Border Patrol troops sent by the Federal government to kidnap them.
