A Large Protest In Portland Today Could Shut Down Streets, Block Traffic
After a large scale protest at the Portland Jetport, the City of Portland warns another large protest today at City Hall could shut down streets.
Public unrest continues to grow nationwide over policies and proclamations put into place by the new Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump. Over the weekend, more than 3,600 people filled the Portland Jetport to protest the "vetting order" that President Trump put into place. But if you thought the protesting was going to stop there, think again.
The City of Portland put up multiple tweets alerting the public of a possible large scale protest in front of City Hall around 4 p.m.
Protests have been frequent in Portland since Trump was sworn in as President, with new executive orders seemingly coming daily. If you're in the area of Congress, Temple or Pearl Streets this afternoon, be advised.
