PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — For a 5th straight night, protesters demonstrated in downtown Portland ostensibly to voice their displeasure with President-elect Donald Trump. Previous protests have grown out of hand, resulting in significant property damage and disruption.

This night, a heavy police presence met the protesters immediately. Authorities sought to contain the crowd while allowing their 1st Amendment right, but arrested those who interfered with police or blocked traffic.
