USA: Portland protests continue in absence of federal agents

Thousands took part in another night of demonstrations in Portland Saturday night -the 66th consecutive night of such protests — just three days after federal officers began withdrawing from the city on Thursday. Brandishing Black Lives Matter signs and chanting «No justice, no peace» the protesters quietly listened to various speakers trading off with a megaphone. Since Oregon State Police assumed security duties at the demonstrations, there have been no reported instances of tear gas being used to disperse crowds, which had become a nightly occurrence in recent weeks. US President Donald Trump had previously given the police 48 hours to maintain order at the protests before threatening to send in the National Guard if this failed to happen.
