Portland protests against police abuses enter ninth week

Demonstrations started in response to the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, but anger has also been growing over President Donald Trump’s decision to send federal agents to the city.

Protests against racism and police brutality in the US city of Portland have entered their ninth week.

The demonstrations started in response to the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

But anger has also been growing over President Donald Trump’s decision to send federal agents to the city as local politicians and Democrats in Congress accuse the officers of using excessive force.
