Bush victory spurs protest in Portland

By The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Angry protesters took to the streets of Portland yesterday, calling for an end to the Iraq war and greater scrutiny of President Bush's re-election victory.

The demonstrators, who numbered more than 100, were met by police in riot gear and on horseback. At least three people were arrested, but there were no reports of injuries.

The protesters chanted, "Not our president, not our war," and sought an investigation into Bush's victory over Democrat John Kerry.

"I want to see democracy in America," said Cyrus Smith, 24. "I want all the votes scrutinized."
