Concerns of free-speech rally in Portland

35 of North Portland was arrested in connection with stabbings on a light-rail train in Portland Multnomah County Sheriffs Office

It's about them, not me, said the surviving stabbing victim who helped shield two "brave young girls" from a hate-spewing white supremacist in Portland. "You got no safe place", Christian said, just moments after entering the courtroom.

"I don't have that feeling like it can't happen here - the way people talk about Portland - because we've got racism". "Death to the enemies of America", he said. Free speech or die, Portland, he said. "I want you to imagine that for a second, being a little girl on that MAX", Fletcher said.

"And the Muslim community, especially in Portland, needs to understand there are a lot of us that are not going to stand by and let anybody - whether they're from here or not from here - scare you into thinking you can't be a part of this town, this city, this community", he said. Namkai-Meche, a recent college graduate, and Best, an Army veteran and father of four, were fatally stabbed, and Micah David-Cole Fletcher, 21, had his throat slashed as they tried to de-escalate the situation. He says they must be traumatized from being targets of hate and from the deaths of two other men who also tried to intervene Friday.

The man charged with stabbing three men on a Portland light-rail train told jailers that he has no income, no mental health issues and does not remember the last time he had a permanent address.

Christian's next court appearance will be on June 7.

Prosecutors say he attacked them after they confronted him for harassing two young black women, one of whom wore a Muslim head covering. Three passengers-Ricky Best, 53, Taliesin Namkai-Meche, 23, and Fletcher-came to the girls' aid, leading Christian to pull a knife.

"Your words and actions are meaningful, here in America and throughout the world", Deliverance wrote to Trump.

On the other hand, Asha Deliverance, the mother of Mr Namkai-Meche, has written an open letter calling on USA president Donald Trump to address Islamophobia.

The FBI is investigating the attack to determine whether to charge Christian with terrorism or a federal hate crime, said Portland FBI spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele.

Fletcher was released from the hospital Monday night.

Please condemn any acts of violence, which result directly from hate speech & hate groups.

"I just kept telling him, 'You're not alone".

In a video uploaded to Facebook on Wednesday, Fletcher thanked the outpouring support he has received for defending Destinee Magnum, 16, and her 17-year-old Muslim friend, who has yet to identified.

The 35-year-old was known to be involved with white nationalist groups and was recently photographed at a recent alt-right protest giving a Nazi salute and shouting: "Die, Muslims!"
