Portland abandons its own 'autonomous zone' day after establishing it

Portland protesters attempting to establish an “autonomous zone” similar to the one in Seattle abandoned it shortly after erecting it.

Footage from Wednesday night shows hundreds of rioters in the city erecting a makeshift fence to cordon off an area, reporter Andy Ngo tweeted.

Police reportedly used flash-bang grenades while the hundreds of protesters assembled and barricaded themselves behind the fence. Protesters were also filmed dancing within the area.

But by early Thursday morning, protesters had dispersed, according to police.

    The group which had gathered in the area of SW Main ST and SW 3rd Ave dispersed on their own at about 2:00 a.m.

Freelance journalist Sergio Olmos also tweeted Thursday morning, “The fence, in what was looking briefly like the beginnings of an autonomous zone, is now abandoned. A shorter life than the city hall wall.”

*********************************************

So democrats have been fighting president Trump on finishing the border wall to protect our country, but when they take over part of a city, they quickly try to build a wall for themselves. That's called hypocrisy at the highest level.
