Portlanders took to the streets during the Indigenous Day of Rage on the 11th of October to protest the presence of colonial statues and the hero-worship of such figures. Demonstrators toppled the statues of Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, both well-known genocidal actors against indigenous peoples.
Protesters rioted all across West Philadelphia after the police shooting of a mentally ill man earlier in the day, with over 30 police officers injured and 91 demonstrators arrested. Many areas in the city experienced heavy-handed clashes between protesters and riot police, with cars driving through crowds in some areas. Several police cruisers were captured and burnt.
