(NationRise.com) – Transgender activists attacked a group of women recently as they were holding a sidewalk demonstration for women’s rights in Portland, Oregon. On her Twitter account, feminist intellectual Lierre Keith said that she and three other women had to be hospitalized because of the injuries caused by the attack.
The feminist writer mentioned that the people who attacked them were part of the radical-leftist group Antifa and noted that they not only punched and kicked them but also pepper sprayed their eyes and even stole their phones. Keith explained that, despite the incident, the four of them were “in good spirits” and were still “undefeated.”
Keith, along with the progressive organization Women’s Declaration International (WDI), was trying to hold a protest in support of women’s rights in the United States and all over the world. They were gathering at a public library in central Portland.
On November 20, Keith posted some pictures of the injuries she suffered. She said on her Twitter account that in addition to the bruises, doctors told her she had a lump on the back of her skull that required surgery. Keith added the attack was the clearest example of “violence against women.”
In a video posted on her Twitter account, WDI leader Kara Dansky claimed that the group of transgender people who committed the attack were part of Antifa’s transgender faction “Trantifa.” She said that the group broke the door and graffitied the walls of the Multnomah County Library. She also stated that, despite Trantifa’s violence, the WDI will “never stop” standing for girls and women.
In another video posted by WDI, a leader of the organization said that members of Trantifa deliberately targeted their phones and cameras. She also noted that the male transgender individuals stole these gadgets when the women ran to a grocery store to rinse their eyes after being pepper sprayed. In some videos of the incident, members of Trantifa can be heard yelling “bigots” and “transphobes” at the protesters.
