The second night of protests in Portland, Oregon had a very different feel from the first night, for many reasons. But this is a documentation of what it sounded like to be in the crowd of thousands of people as they walked around the city.
This recording includes when the police decided to break up the protest with crowd dispersal devices. The explosions are quite loud, and I encourage you to turn up the volume and listen on good speakers for the full effect (I encourage you to be nice to your ears, but the idea of the grenades is to be painfully loud, which they are).

    Ah, I remember this night. You could hear the flashbangs from my apartment. Helicopters were overhead constantly. Even though I was across the bridge, it sounded like a warzone.

    The police, especially the one with the megaphone, sounded so patient. When our country gets invaded by enemy troops, then it won't go so well.
