Good to hear.

The arrests were for Antifa people who were throwing bricks and stuff at Police. The regular protesters on both sides were peaceful.     

The Oregonian uploaded footage of police deploying flash-bangs and tear gas in order to disperse black-masked individuals protesting in a public park.

I have noticed this from previous "events" news; The Portland police seem to be under instructions to do their job, as they did this past weekend. Nothing like local here ( ie., Berkeley, San Francisco) who let violence happen. The Portland police kept the groups seperate, and they used minimal needed force ( flashbangs, tear gas) to disarm and disperse the AntiFa group who showed up to be violent.

Great Job Portland PD !

Mr. Bill:
A "March Against Sharia", organized by a group called ACT for America, is scheculed to occur mid-day Saturday June 10th in many cities.  The complete list of locations is on their website.  Here's a brief list of cities:

Arizona: Phoenix
California: Oceanside, Roseville, San Bernardino, Santa Clara
Colorado: Denver
Connecticut: Waterbury
Florida: Jacksonville, Orlando
Georgia: Atlanta
Illinois: Chicago
Indiana: Indianapolis
Kansas: Wichita
Massachusetts: Boston
Michigan: Lansing, Southfield
Minnesota: St. Paul
Missouri: St. Charles, Kansas City
New York: New York City, Syracuse
North Carolina: Raleigh
Pennsylvania: Harrisburg
Texas: Austin, Dallas, Houston
Virginia: Virginia Beach
Washington: Seattle

In addition, a similar rally is being held in Batesville, Arkansas, but ACT for America has disassociated itself from this event because it's being organized by white supremacists.  ACT for America claims to have zero tolerance of racial or religious bigotry.

Security at the events will be assisted by volunteers from  Oath Keepers, Bikers for Trump, Two Million Bikers, American Civil Defense, various Three Percenter organizations, The Proud Boys, and other patriotic groups (according to this Oath Keepers post).

There is an obvious potential for confrontations and violence to occur at any of these events, so please be careful.

So far, it sounds like the anti-Sharia crowds have numbered around 20 to 100, the counter-protesters have been slightly more numerous, and confrontations have been limited to noise and some shoving matches.

Charlottesville, Virginia
White nationalists and counterprotesters are expected to flood downtown Charlottesville Saturday as the Virginia city braces for the "Unite the Right" rally. By noon, thousands are expected to gather in Emancipation Park, where barricades have been placed in proximity to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
