What began as a peaceful rally and march in honor of International Worker's Day (general strike) for workers, unions and immigrants at Shemanski Park in Portland, Oregon was quickly halted by the actions of Rose City Antifa and the local Black Bloc. The march wasn't halfway through when rocks, flares, smoke grenades and other projectiles were thrown at riot police and buildings by "anarchists" in the downtown area. Women and children were told to "expeditiously leave the area" as the march was cancelled and the permit rescinded effective immediately.
