Already, there have been reports that some of the demonstrators have attacked police officers.
"The group of roughly 100 people started marching north shortly after 3 p.m. and reached the Democratic Party of Oregon's Portland headquarters shortly before 4 p.m.," said KATU.

Besides Portland, so-called Antifa mobs were seen burning American flags outside Colorado's Capitol building. The Sun describes the group as a "militant left-wing-group."
Reports keep pouring in as Antifa groups assemble in other cities. Twitter user Jason Whitman said an Antifa march was spotted at the Ohio Capitol building this afternoon.
With reports of leftist anti-government groups, or possibly Antifa as some claim, are on a path of destruction in multiple cities following the Biden inauguration. There are reports Antifa is planning to attack Trump supporters this week.
The militant leftist group seeks to dismantle the federal government; it comes at the president calls for national unity.
