Oregon National Guard activated for possible protests

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Gov. Kate Brown has activated the Oregon National Guard because of possible violence at the state Capitol and elsewhere following the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol last week by a pro-Trump mob. The Oregon State Police said in a statement Wednesday  the guard would be deployed as necessary and their deployment locations wouldn’t be made public. The Capitol in Salem, Oregon, has seen near weekly protests since November’s elections, and some have turned violent. Federal authorities have warned of possible unrest in all 50 state capitols this weekend and into next week.
