Far-Right Proud Boys Members Clash with Anti-fascists in Portland, Oregon

HeadlineAug 24, 2021

In Oregon, dozens of members of the far-right group the Proud Boys gathered in Portland for a rally Sunday where they assaulted and opened fire on counterprotesters. At least one counterprotester fired back. Proud Boys members descended on Portland from as far away as New York for the gathering, which quickly devolved into a violent clash over the incarceration of far-right extremists accused of involvement in the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. Members of the Proud Boys vandalized cars, smashed windows, slashed tires and shot at counterprotesters with paintball guns.
