Thousands of anti-Trump protestors marched through the streets of downtown Portland, Oregon on Thursday evening chanting anti-Trump slogans with some protestors smashing out car windows and business windows in the city’s Pearl District before riot police intervened.
After gathering at Pioneer Courthouse Square and marching through the streets of Portland, protestors chanted, “We reject the president elect” and “No KKK, no fascist USA, no Trump.”
The number of protestors were estimated between 2,500-4,000, according to some observers on the street.
Protestors also strolled across the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland above the Willamette River.
Thursday’s protest in Portland was the third protest in three days and marked the only protest that turned violent.
On Wednesday peaceful anti-Trump protests occurred in other cities including Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Oakland, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Seattle.
Protestors are expressing dissatisfaction with Donald Trump becoming elected president and U.S. civil rights becoming weakened.
