On 11-06-2021 at (no time given) a Community Meeting was scheduled at 1954 S Massachusetts St Eritrean Community Center, where members of the Eritrean community were supposed to meet with the Eritrean Ambassador to discuss issues occurring in their homeland. When members arrived who were against the current government in Eritrea, they were not allowed inside the community center. This caused the group to become very upset and begin to push the fence line of the building and throw projectiles. Initially patrol responded to assist in separating both groups, so no violence occurred. Patrol was then relieved by the Community Response Group. The Antigovernmental group again began pushing on the fence line of the building. During this second event a female victim stated a suspect on the pro-government group threw an unknown liquid at the victim. The victim declined medics but believed this assault was due to her political beliefs. An assault report with bias motivation was completed. Due to police visibility no other major incidents or issues occurred during the event with the counter demonstrators leaving peacefully before the Ambassador was seen exiting the building. This entire incident was screened with A/LT.
