On the one year anniversary of George Floyd's death, Antifa continued to bring violence and destruction to the downtown streets of Portland, Ore.
Footage from Portland shows a large group of Antifa dressed in black bloc wandering through the streets, at one point attempting to set fire to the same Justice Center they did so to a year ago.
Antifa attempted to conceal themselves by using a smoke bomb at one point as they moved towards Portland City Hall, where they broke windows and graffitied the outside of the building, with one tag stating "f*ck Ted b*tch Wheeler."
Portland Police declared the assembly unlawful. They warned that those who continued to engage in "criminals activity" would be "subject to arrest and use of force."
Antifa threw fireworks and projectiles at the police and chased them back to their vehicles at one point, with former congressional candidate Amanda Siebe at the front of the pack of agitators.
Windows of downtown businesses and federal buildings alike were smashed in, with Antifa throwing fireworks and vandalizing a Starbucks with graffiti that said "die Nazis" and "F*ck Capitalism." They vandalized a car while the driver was still inside.
A memorial tree was also vandalized, set up in downtown Portland in memory of Aaron "Jay" Danielson who was murdered by Antifa member Michael Reinoehl last year. The words "f*ck J" were displayed at the spot where he passed away.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler vowed in April to take a harsher stance on Antifa in the city of Portland, a departure from the softer, more passive treatment he previously had after members of the group punched him in the face and attempted to burn down his condo building.
