Scuffles broke out in Portland after left-wing counter-protesters gathered in large numbers on Saturday for a rally of the right-wing Proud Boys, which Antifa consider neo-fascists.

A serious assault took place on PB’s after they busted the door of the bus, they also threw a metal hammer at them.
I also got pepper sprayed in the face with many others. Sorry for language
Videos showed masked protesters attacking two buses that were carrying right-wing demonstrators. One skirmish saw “anti-fascists” smashing a door and throwing a hammer into one of the buses, before chasing the vehicle and hurling rocks. A hooded man could also be seen using pepper spray inside the bus.
Another disturbing attack shows a young girl and a man sporting a Spartan helmet and white T-shirt emblazoned with the words “I hate the left and racism” being cornered by a crowd of left-wing demonstrators after getting separated from the right-wing rally. A video shows the pair being surrounded, doused with water, and chased while a crowd chanted “Walk away.”9,740 people are talking about this
Another set of videos showed a middle-aged man lying motionless on the ground with a woman kneeling beside him. The woman appears to be shielding the man while trading insults with left-wing activists, who call her a “crazy b**ch.”
