Showdown Between Trump Supporters And Counter-Protesters Shuts Down Harlow Rd. Sunday
A clash between Trump supporters and counter-protesters shut down Harlow Road in Eugene Sunday afternoon.
Sunday afternoon, members of a group called "Women for Trump" and "Proud Boys" waved American flags on the I-5 overpass. Then protesters showed up, including some members of Rose City Antifa. According to Eugene Weekly’s Camilla Mortensen, it became a shouting match between the groups. Eugene and Springfield police showed up to disperse the crowd. Mortensen says there were about 50 of the Trump supporters and about 100 counter-protesters. The groups ended up near the Walmart at Gateway Mall before things quieted down. Harlow Road was re-opened after a few hours.
There was reportedly one arrest during the incident.
