A protester dubbed ‘Naked Athena’ confronted Portland police wearing only a face mask and beanie.
The unidentified woman struck a series of ballet and yoga poses in front of anti-riot officers at around 1.45 am on Saturday morning.
Surreal video footage from the scene shows the woman striding towards the officers, who were in heavy protective gear including gas masks and helmets, almost completely naked. [VIDEO BELOW]
The standoff comes after the city of Portland marked its 50th consecutive night of unrest following the death of George Floyd, with crowds taking to the streets to denounce racial injustice.
And then? Naked Athena appeared and the little boys didn’t know what to do. pic.twitter.com/Elo69SsV0t
