Portland, Oregon食色最新版本 — A statue of George Washington was pulled down by protesters on Thursday night, which was Juneteenth eve, . The nation's first president owned slaves.
KOIN said Thursday marked the 21st day of demonstrations for racial justice and police reform sparked by the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Two groups — Rose City Justice and Lavender Caucus — hosted a sit-in rally at Jefferson High School in the evening where community members shared their experiences with racism with a crowd of a few hundred.
A separate group of about 20 people met around 10 p.m. at the site of the large bronze statue of Washington.— Jennifer Dowling (@JenDowlingKoin6)
