Antifa protesters gathered in Portland on Wednesday to voice dissatisfaction with newly sworn-in President Joe Biden and have clashed with authorities, at one point taking a police officer’s bicycle, authorities said.
The Portland Police Bureau said several events were planned in the city, hours after Biden was sworn in as president. A group gathered near the headquarters for the Democratic Party of Oregon Portland.
Some were seen damaging the building and windows and engaging in vandalism, police said.
