Mayor Ted Wheeler will answer questions at a noon press conference about the past weekend's protests in Portland.

Support The Portland Mercury

The police response to protests in Portland this weekend was particularly brutal, so you can expect questions about how the city plans on addressing cop protest tactics going forward. Also on the docket: the mayor's non-ban on tear gas, police violence toward the press, and the potential defunding of two Portland Police Bureau programs, as proposed by Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty.

This is going to be an interesting one. The press conference is scheduled to start at noon, and YOU CAN WATCH IT HERE.
