Portland denies permit for right-wing rally, cites COVID-19

yesterday

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ó Portland, Oregon, has denied a permit for a Saturday rally planned by the right-wing group Proud Boys.

The city found the groupís estimated crowd size of 10,000 people was too big under coronavirus safety measures, according to a statement released Wednesday by the Portland Parks & Recreation Bureau.

The bureau said it had consulted with Mayor Ted Wheeler, who is also the police commissioner, and decided that those attending would not be able to comply with social distancing rules because of the large numbers of people.
