A demonstration organized by the right-wing Patriot Prayer group in Portland, Oregon, United States ended in clashes on Saturday night, Oct. 13, with a brawl erupting among counter-protesters and an American flag being burned on the street.

The footage above was shared by Bryan Colombo via Twitter on Oct. 14, who said the flag was burned by members of the Antifa movement who were counter-protesting the Patriot Prayer march.

The flag was burned at the site of the police-involved shooting of an African-American man in September, he said. JB
