Protesters gather, damage Democratic headquarters in Oregon


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police say a group of about 150 protesters carrying anti-Biden and anti-police signs marched in Portland streets and damaged the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Oregon.

The group smashed windows and spray-painted anarchist symbols Wednesday at the political party building and police say eight arrests were made.

Police say it was one of four groups gathering in the city on Inauguration Day. A group of about 150 people also marched in Seattle, where police say windows at a federal courthouse were broken and three people were arrested.
