Thousands took the the streets last night to protest President-elect Donald Trump. It got a little out of hand, when a number of self-described "anarchists"—wearing masks and carrying sticks and baseball bats—went on a vandalism tear, bashing in car windows at a Toyota dealership in the Lloyd District and business windows in the Pearl District. See our coverage here.


The Portland Police Bureau just released the names of the 25 people arrested last night and the charges they were booked on. It's unclear how many of these people were involved in the vandalism, or just got arrested for not following the bureau's orders well enough. Ages of those arrested range from 15 to 48, with an average of 24. Most are for disorderly conduct or interfering with a peace officer. A couple were charged with attempted assault on a public safety officer. Here's who the cops said was arrested:

Both Mayor Charlie Hales and Gov. Kate Brown issued statements on the protests. Here's Hales' statement:

I'm saddened by the destruction of our public spaces and local businesses caused by rioters. Although the majority of over 4,000 protesters last night were peaceful and followed Portland Police safety instructions, anarchists shut down these voices by spreading violence and fear.

I'm thankful for the decisive actions taken by the Portland Police Bureau to help separate violent dissenters from those assembling peacefully; mitigate damage to public and private property; safely direct motorists; employ de-escalation tactics and restraint in use-of-force; and appropriately deploy arrests for criminal activity. I also want to thank state and local law enforcement agencies and transportation departments for assisting Portland Police in these efforts.

Last night's violence is not a reflection of Portland values. We will continue to support and advocate on behalf of women and people of color. We will continue to welcome our Muslim brothers and sisters, immigrants and refugees. We are Portland, a community that believes in equity, inclusion and openness. That will not change.

Riots and violence in our streets are completely unacceptable. I hope that all Portlanders will help our local small businesses recover. I know in Portland we are a community that believes love conquers hate — let's be that example for the nation. We are all hurting and need to come together as a community to heal — as Portlanders and as Americans.

Mayor Hales is meeting with Portland Police, emergency incident command, and touring damaged property and businesses this morning. More information will be released later today.

And here's what Gov. Brown has to say:

Oregon has a proud and strong history of civic participation, protest, and advocacy. It's part of the Oregon way to make our voices heard, but the right to peacefully assemble should not be clouded by attempts to instigate lawlessness.

Support The Portland Mercury

I commend our law enforcement officers and local leaders for preserving peace and keeping our communities safe. What defines and distinguishes us as Oregonians and Americans is our willingness to come together to work through our challenges. We must do so now, following the election and looking forward to the future.

Meanwhile, Portland activists have already raised more than $10,000 to help pay for last night's vandalism.
