May Day 2017 – Cole Miller


JENNIFER: OUR COVERAGE CONTINUES RIGHT NOW OF THE MAYDAY PROTESTS THAT ARE HAPPENING IN DOWNTOWN PORTLAND. THERE’S OUR COLE MILLER RIGHT NOW WHO JUST TWEETED THERE IS A SMOKE BOMB, PEPSI CANS BEING THROWN AT OFFICERS. COLE, CAN YOU GIVE US YOUR LOCATION AND WHAT ELSE YOU ARE SEEING THIS AFTERNOON? COLE: JENNIFER, GOOD AFTERNOON. WE JUST SAW A FEW BLOCKS FROM WHERE WE WERE AT THE MORRISON BRIDGE ON SECOND AS THE MARCH CONTINUES NORTH TO BURNSIDE WE’RE NOW AT 2ND AND YOU CAN SEE THE CROWD MOVING THROUGH THE STREETS OF DOWNTOWN PORTLAND. FOR THE MOST PART BESIDES THE SMOKE BOMBS WE SAW THREE THROWN AT OFFICERS WHO SHUT DOWN THE MORRISON BRIDGE IN ANTICIPATION OF THIS ROUD. A RED, BLUE, AND WHITE SMOKE BOMB. A CAN OF PEPSI BEING THROWN AT AN OFFICER AS WELL. THANKFULLY NOBODY INJURED DURING THAT SCUFFLE. A LIGHT MIST STARTING TO COME DOWN. THIS MARCH AS YOU SEE CONTINUES TO MAKE ITS WAY NORTH. THE GROUP ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IT APPEARS TO BE SLOWING DOWN OR STOPPING RIGHT HERE AT THIS POINT BETWEEN PINE AND O. NOT QUITE SURE WHAT IS GOING ON JUST YET. WE’RE ALSO HEARING THAT THE BURNSIDE BRIDGE IS ALSO GOING TO BE SHUT DOWN AS THE MARCH CONTINUES TO MAKE ITS WAY FROM THERE. THE ROUTE IS PERMITTED THAT THE PROTESTERS ONCE THEY REACH BURNSIDE WOULD BE TAKING A LEFT HEADING WEST AND THEN GETTING BACK ON BROADWAY BEFORE MAKING THEIR WAY BACK TO THE PARK. THIS IS A LIVE LOOK AT SOUTHWEST SECOND RIGHT AT THE INTERSECTION OF OAK STREET WHERE THINGS HAVE COME TO A HALT HERE FOR THE TIME BEING.
