100 days of protests in Portland

In Portland, the whitest major city in the U.S., demonstrations against systemic racism and police brutality have stretched for 100 straight days, sparking unprecedented cuts to the city police bureau, night after night of violence by law enforcement officers and protesters, presidential condemnation and national attention.

The ongoing unrest may alter the city’s reputation for years to come.

The so far unending cries for change began three days after George Floyd’s death under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. But the arc of Black Lives Matter demonstrations in Oregon’s largest city has varied markedly from June to July to August before reaching their 100th day Friday.
