More than 200 protesters blocked traffic on Interstate 5 in Portland, Oregon, on Wednesday morning, in order to voice their dissatisfaction with the results of the U.S. presidential election.

The group, comprised mostly of Portland State University students, gathered on the Interstate around 4:30 a.m.

Protesters shouted anti-Trump chants as they blocked traffic in both direction.


KATU News reported that the group first gathered on the Hawthorne Bridge, before making their way onto the interstate.


Anti-Trump protesters held a die-in at the Hawthorne Bridge before moving onto Interstate 5, where they have jumped the barrier and are blocking traffic.


One protester was struck by a vehicle that tried to make it through the human barrier. He was not seriously injured.

The Oregonian reported that the protests were “mostly peaceful,” despite a few confrontations between motorists and protesters.

After nearly four hours, many protesters had left the roadway. In total, six people were arrested on various charges, including criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.
