Around 100 protesters in Portland marched to demand the halt of the Line 3 Tar Sands pipeline in Minnesota, which would possibly poison the local rivers in the area and compromise water supplies.

After police attacked the crowd, the Ministry of Finance was set on fire and widespread clashes began to occur across the city, prompting the resignation of the Minister of Health.
