Portland mayor asks federal government to revoke permit for ‘alt-right’ rally / By JULIA JACOBO

The city has not issued any permits for either of the two events, which are planned for the Terry Shrunk Plaza, Wheeler said. The federal government controls permitting for the venue and has issued a permit for the June 4 demonstration, called the Trump Free Speech Rally, he said.

“I am calling on the federal government to IMMEDIATELY REVOKE the permit(s) they have issued for the June 4th event and to not issue a permit for June 10th,” Wheeler wrote on Facebook. “Our city is in mourning, our community’s anger is real, and the timing and subject of these events can only exacerbate an already difficult situation.”

Wheeler urged the organizers of the demonstrations to cancel the events and asked their supporters to “stay away from Portland.”
