Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

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.
