Portland Police Bureau declared an unlawful assembly and officers made multiple arrests as demonstrators returned to the city's eastern police station and set a trash can on fire — prompting a dispersal order that lasted for hours on Thursday night, Aug. 6.

The clash between perhaps 300 protesters and bands of officers wearing riot gear began around 9 p.m., near the East Precinct on Southeast 106th Avenue, but the black-clad rallygoers were pushed back blocks away to Stark and 113th as officers used smoke bombs, pepper spray and pepper balls at times, as well as puncturing the tires of a protest vehicle.
