(Portland, OR) -- Protests against police brutality and systemic racism appear to be quieting down in downtown Portland following the departure of federal officers. The Oregonian reports a relatively small crowd of about 400 protesters gathered near the Justice Center downtown last night for the 67th consecutive day of demonstrations in the city. That's down from the roughly one-thousand protesters seen in recent weeks. Police presence was reportedly scarce as protesters listened to a recorded speech by Martin Luther King Jr. Protesters have been gathering in downtown Portland every night to demand change following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May.
