Election protests continue into Wednesday

Protesters blocked traffic downtown late Tuesday

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) --- Election night protesters did not head home by Wednesday morning as groups gathered throughout the city.

A group of about 100 people was marching downtown until about 5 a.m., when they dissipated. However, more protests were planned for throughout the day.

 

 

TriMet said MAX and bus lines may experience delays as they did Tuesday, when protesters took to the streets of downtown Portland and dozens of people blocked traffic and MAX trains after midnight protesting the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. 

TriMet said MAX green and yellow lines were delayed in through the end of service Tuesday night because of the protesters.

A crowd estimated at about 300 grew throughout the night and blocked traffic on I-5.

Portland Police say "free speech events" do not require a permit; but marches or demonstrations occurring in public streets that restrict movement of other community members do.
