What to know about Saturday’s protests in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. — A rally of right-wing groups is expected to be met by left-wing counter protesters in downtown Portland on Saturday in a clash that has become familiar to Portlanders since the election of President Donald Trump. 

The size and volatility of the protests remain unclear, but the weeks-long anticipation of the dueling demonstrations has garnered national attention, in part, because of the history of violence during similar clashing protests in Portland.
