>> Scores of right wing and antifascist demonstrators squared off Saturday in Portland, Oregon, just a little over a month after four people were injured in similar rallies in this city. Police in riot gear used non-lethal methods like rubber bullets and flashbangs to control the crowd. But in one instance a police officer appears to push a woman who falls to the ground.
It all began when members of right wing Patriot Prayer, a group founded by Joey Gibson who's running for US Senate in November, gathered midday in a river front park. They were met by antifascist demonstrators who yelled chants like go home Nazis.>> This is the Portland Police Bureau.
>> Police said on Twitter they had seized multiple items that could be used as weapons and were, quote, observing people in helmets and protective padding. But authorities will likely have to face more of this in the future. Gibson who is facing a long shot campaign to unseat democrat Maria Cantwell in Washington state, said in a live video on Facebook earlier this week, that he keep bringing his followers to Portland until they could express their right-wing views without interference.
