Demonstrators gathered in front of the Multnomah County Justice Center, which has become a frequent site in Portland’s ongoing protests against police brutality. Around 2:30 p.m. hundreds of people began moving north through the city, marching in the street, united with chants that called for justice for George Floyd, the unarmed, handcuffed Black man who died under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer on Monday, May 25.

A large group marched across the Morrison Bridge and went to the Washington High School campus. Another large group gathered along the roads at NE 57th and Sandy.

As the city’s curfew came and went for the third night, protesters stayed in the streets of downtown in a peaceful assembly.
