Are there unsafe areas in Portland, USA
Violence in Portland"A symbolically highly dangerous situation"
Demonstrations against police violence and racism have been taking place in US cities like Portland for two months. In addition to the peaceful protests, there were multiple clashes between demonstrators and security forces. US President Donald Trump then sent federal police officers to Portland.

Since the death of George Floyd, protesters have been protesting in Portland every evening. President Donald Trump sent special forces. These are methods of state arbitrariness, says Thilo Kößler.
Such an operation is constitutionally possible and has also occurred in the history of the USA, said the former state minister for culture and USA expert Michael Naumann in the Dlf. But these troops appeared in a "civil war-like outfit". "That was what I think was a highly dangerous, symbolically highly dangerous situation in Oregon".
The pictures reminded him of the Weimar Republic. But the size of the country and the different levels of consciousness between the east and west coasts in the USA make civil war-like or revolutionary situations unlikely.

Parallels to the 68 generation
Portland is a Democratic-ruled city that is considered to be left-wing liberal. That is also a reason why there are demonstrations against racism, especially there. Michael Naumann draws parallels to the generation of 1968, to which he belongs: "I saw the whole thing as a re-edition of this youthful protest movement".
The "civil rights movement almost half a century ago" is also comparable, according to Michael Naumann. The civil rights movement of that time had achieved a lot, but not enough - it needed a departure from the "ingrown structures of racism". America is also able to do this.
