Fights broke out between left-wing and right-wing groups in downtown Portland, Oregon on Saturday as police struggled to contain the violence.

Footage captured by Infowars reporter Savanah Hernandez shows brutal clashes break between hundreds of Antifa and the Proud Boys outside the Multnomah County Justice Center during their dueling rallies.

Conservative groups had organized a “No To Marxism” rally in the area but Antifa and Black Lives Matter militants reportedly arrived to bring violence and stage an anti-police riot of their own.

This marks the 87th consecutive day of Antifa riots and clashes with police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May.

President Trump addressed the continuous Antifa violence from Portland after the police declared another riot Friday night, calling for Democrat Gov. Kate Brown to request National Guard assistance.

“Another bad night of Rioting in Portland, Oregon. A small number of Federal troops there to protect courthouse and other Federal property only (great job!). Wanting to be asked by City & State to STOP THE RIOTS. Would bring in National Guard, end problem immediately. ASK!” Trump tweeted Saturday.

Action 7 heads to Portland for night 1 of riot coverage. ANTIFA marched through neighborhoods surrounding Irving Park, a place they deemed “the most racist neighborhood in Portland” and ended their night by destroying 3 police cars at the North Police Precinct.
