Demonstrators set fire to a bible Friday night, later throwing a US flag on top, during the 65th consecutive night of protests in Portland. The protesters chanted “F*ck Trump” as the flag reduced to ashes.

Since the phased withdrawal of federal agents began on Thursday, the protests have quietened considerably. Friday night’s demonstrations were devoid of the usual explosions and tear gas that had become mainstays of clashes between protesters and law enforcement.

The presence of federal officers had reignited tensions in the city in recent weeks, leading to multiple injuries and scenes of violence as demonstrations grew increasingly militant.

According to authorities, the Oregon State Police will continue managing security in the city for at least two weeks, in collaboration with the Portland Police Bureau.
