There are currently 10 suspected Antifa members facing charges over the recent civil unrest in Portland, Oregon. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office announced the charges last week following recent violent demonstrations.

The 10 suspects face several felonies including criminal mischief in connection with three separate incidents. Three people were also charged with causing damage to the Democrat Party headquarters in Nov. 2020. At the time, social media accounts belonging to Antifa members were promoting “direct action” to oppose the presidential election.
