It has been more than a month since George Floyd was killed at the hands of Minneapolis police, sparking global outrage and protests demanding an end to systemic racism.

During this time, many Portlandians have taken to the streets to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

This weekend, demonstrations continued, as did confrontations with the Portland Police Bureau.

On Sunday, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Oregon announced that they have filed a lawsuit against the Portland Police Bureau, after numerous claims of riot-geared officers becoming physical with protesters and arresting journalists and public observers.
