@js0000 Rose City Antifa's estimate was 300 on the right: https://twitter.com/RoseCityAntifa/status/1162939921767657472
And that's in the same range as some other local news outlets, like the Portland Mercury who reported 300 on the right and 1000 counter-demonstrators: https://www.portlandmercury.com/blogtown/2019/08/17/26989070/as-protest-spread-along-waterfront-and-across-bridges-portland-police-mostly-managed-to-keep-protesters-apart
Willamette Week's estimates were lower on both sides, 200 vs 500: https://www.wweek.com/news/2019/08/17/proud-boys-scamper-across-portland-waterfront-but-police-keep-them-far-from-antifascists/
The Guardian's story said 500 on the right, that's the highest estimate I've seen.
Portland Police estimated 1,200 total https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/news/read.cfm?id=250138
