A road closure sign is seen in downtown Portland Ore. Friday Aug. 16 2019 in advance of a rally as the city prepares for crowds. In the past week authorities in Portland have arrested a half-dozen members of right-wing groups on charges related to

That's all we wanted.

Shortly after 4:00 p.m., police declared the protests a civil disturbance and ordered everyone to evacuate the area.

"We know there is the possibility that assaults or other crimes occurred outside of the view of officers", police said in a statement. "Officers and detectives will be spending the hours and days ahead writing reports, conducting interviews and pursuing investigations".

Biggs said Saturday was a success.

The Proud Boys protest group walked along the river.

"I'm grateful that this was largely a peaceful event", Wheeler told reporters at the news conference. "We were preparing for and planning for a worst-case scenario". "Weapons seized included chemical spray (bear spray), metal and wooden poles, knives, shields, and a stun gun". But by using barriers and bridge closures - and allowing a large contingent of right-wingers to leave when they asked to - authorities were able to mostly keep the two sides apart. Police estimated at least 1,000 people gathered for the demonstrations.

Eric K. Ward, executive director of the Portland-based Western States Center, said the right-wing rally was a bust.

Their particular focus was on the far-left extremist group Antifa (Anti-fascist). A group of Antifa protestors were screaming at police, with one guy even telling offers to "commit suicide".

Police also had several encounters with demonstrators, Outlaw said, including one where an officer used PepperBalls, which disperses pepper spray after it hits something.

The charge against Gibson stems from his involvement in a violent clash in Portland on May 1, when far-right protesters arrived at Cider Riot, which was hosting an event that drew people who participated in demonstrations earlier in the day.

Police have mounted a major operation to keep the two sides apart in the USA city. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler acknowledged the, quote, "reality of a growing white nationalist movement". He added, "Portland is being watched very closely".

Right-wing demonstrators march in Portland.

The latest rally began late Saturday morning. The Proud Boys were protesting Antifa's violent ways, especially after the group attacked conservative journalist Andy Ngo in June.

Speaking at the press conference, Wheeler took aim specifically at the right-wing violence, accusing pro-Trump activist Joey Gibson, the founder of the right-wing Patriot Prayer group, of "misusing public taxpayer resources" by turning up to the rallies and inciting unrest with his presence there.

A member of the Proud Boys, who declined to give his name, carries a flag before the start of a protest in Portland, Ore., on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019.

He said his group would stage further demonstrations until Ted Wheeler, the mayor of the OR city, moved against Antifa.

"The tables have really turned in a significant way", he said.
