As cities across the nation participate in protests for justice for George Floyd, people in Portland, Oregon have shown up in an especially moving way. Thousands of peaceful protesters in Portland again laid down on the Burnside Bridge for nine minutes with their hands on their backs, as reported by local outlet KATU 2. Protesters did this on both Monday and Tuesday evening. The Williamette Week reports that protesters chanted Breonna Taylor’s name in addition to Floyd’s. Images and videos from the scene are truly moving.
And from Monday night’s protest.
Portland healthcare workers also gathered for Floyd.
