Protestors at the annual May Day protest clashed briefly with Police on Friday, May 1.

While no arrests were made, several protestors were pepper sprayed. Members of the group Don’t Shoot PDX protested police violence, while other protestors from the “15 Now” campaign marched in support of a $15 minimum wage. A small group of protestors blocked the Burnside Bridge, however the group soon dispersed.
