On June 12, 2020, at approximately 6:00 p.m., demonstrators gathered at two locations within the City of Portland. A group gathered at Revolution Hall in Southeast Portland and a second gathered outside the Justice Center in Downtown Portland.

Several hundreds of demonstrators marched from Revolution Hall to Grant High School in Northeast Portland. During the march, demonstrators walked north and east through city streets. Once the demonstrators reached Grant High School, they peacefully assembled and spoke for several hours. After the demonstration, they marched back to Revolution Hall.

The second group of demonstrators began congregating at the Justice Center around 8 p.m. Demonstrators gathered at the fence line at Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street. The demonstration continued for several hours. Officers observed demonstrators shake and climb the fence, cut holes in the fence and throw many projectiles over the fence. Several people came through the holes in the fence and ran back into the crowd.

Demonstrators began throwing road flares, glass bottles, marbles (via sling shot devices) and metal pipes over the fence. Some people took down the fence around the Federal Court house in the area of Southwest 3 Avenue and Southwest Main Street. At about 12:26 a.m. a civil disturbance was declared. The crowd was given ample opportunity to disperse and were warned if they did not do so, they were subject to arrest or force. Officers began dispersing the crowd just after 12:40 a.m. Several arrests were made.

Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available. No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau members during this event.
