Trump Win Sets Off California, Oregon Protests

November 9, 2016

LOS ANGELES — Donald Trump’s Presidential victory set off protests early Nov. 9 by hundreds of people on California college campuses and in Oregon.

Police says at least 500 people swarmed on streets in and around UCLA, some shouting anti-Trump expletives and others chanting “Not my President!”

There were no immediate arrests.

Smaller demonstrators were held at University of California campuses and neighborhoods in Berkeley, Irvine and Davis and at San Jose State.

In Oakland, more than 100 protesters took to downtown streets. KNTV-TV reported that protesters burned Trump in effigy, smashed windows of the Oakland Tribune newsroom and set tires and trash on fire.

The California Highway Patrol says a woman was struck by a car during the protest and severely injured.

In Oregon, dozens of people blocked traffic in downtown Portland and forced a delay for trains on two light rail lines.

Media reports say the crowd grew to about 300 people, including some who sat in the middle of the road to block traffic. The crowd of anti-Trump protesters burned American flags and chanted “That’s not my President.”

In Seattle, a group of about 100 protesters gathered in the Capital Hill neighborhood, blocked roads and set a trash bin on fire.
