(Portland, OR)  --  Mayor Ted Wheeler and other local leaders are speaking out against the destruction caused during Sunday night's "Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage" protest.  Wheeler spoke during a press conference yesterday alongside Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell and State Representative Tawna Sanchez, calling the actions "obscene."  Wheeler says the destruction caused by the group co-opted an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Native Americans.  Chief Lovell says the protesters also damaged the Oregon Historical Society building, the public safety building at Portland State University, and several restaurants.  Demonstrators marched through the South Park Blocks Sunday and toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
