Protesters also smashed windows in several houses and placed a poster with slogans on the Oregon Historical Society building.
Statues of the 16th and 26th US Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt were demolished in Portland, Oregon, USA, during protests on Sunday. This was reported by Fox News.
In addition to demolishing monuments, protesters broke the glass in several houses and placed a poster with anti-racist slogans on the Oregon Historical Society building.
Another wave of demolition of monuments of political figures of the past began in the USA against the background of mass protests over the death of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis during police detention.
Earlier it was reported that in Louisville, Kentucky, USA, two police officers were shot and wounded while on patrol. The protesters are unhappy with the court's ruling against the violent law enforcement officers.
U.S. federal law enforcement agencies also reportedly arrested about 200 rioters in August in cities across the country.
