The protesters were breaking windows, throwing things at police and talking about setting fire to a local government building in central Portland, according to the Maltoma County Sheriff’s Office. The crowd dispersed around 11pm, KOIN TV reported.
Many people have been quoted by the Portland Police Department, but only one person has been arrested on a separate warrant.
Opposition groups called for a boycott of the 18-year-old Kyle Ritenhouse House in Keno, Wisconsin. Last year, two people were killed and another was injured in a protest against police brutality in Wisconsin.
Demonstrations took place in several US cities, including New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
Nearly 1,000 people, organized by Black Live Matter Chicago and other local activists, marched through downtown Chicago on Saturday afternoon. According to the Chicago Tribune, Rittenhouse was armed with placards denouncing protesters as “Stop white supremacy” and “we are hitting the road to protest against this racist injustice.”
South Africa’s director of unity and freedom, Tanya Watkins, spoke at a rally at the Federal Plaza ahead of the rally, the Tribune reported.
“Although I was not surprised by yesterday’s verdict, I was tired. I’m upset. I am angry. “I have lost faith in this justice system,” said Watkins, a black man.
Dozens of people in North Carolina gathered on Saturday near the state Capitol building to protest the verdict, reports Raleigh News and Observer. Speakers shouted at about 75 people: “There is no justice, no peace!” He led the people. And “Cancel Police!” በሞተር ሳይክል ላይ ያሉት የፖሊስ መኮንኖች ተቃዋሚዎችን አጅበው የትራፊክ መጨናነቅን ከለከሏቸው ቡና ቤቶችና ሬስቶራንቶች አልፈው በመንገድ ሲሄዱ።
Following the assassination of George Floyd in Minneapolis last year, there was persistent and often violent protests in Portland. Some activists have complained that the police are responding harshly. Shortly after the returnees’ trial, Portland Police Chief Chuck Loveel said they were working on Friday night and weekend plans.
At around 8 a.m., about 200 protesters rallied in downtown Portland. At 9 a.m., windows were shattered and city utility doors were damaged.
The Maltoma County Sheriff’s Office dispersed the incident, and in a statement released on Saturday, it said some protesters hurled urine, water bottles and batteries at soldiers.
