Occupy Portland Non-Eviction

Portland Mayor Sam Adams set a deadline of 12:01am this morning for the Occupy Portland folks to clear out of the two city parks that had been the location for the encampment. With a potential standoff with the Portland Police looming, a few thousand people came downtown and marched in support of the occupiers. I was there from around 11pm until 3:30am, the crowd was mostly peaceful and I believe only one arrest was made during that time. Here are a few of my favorite images; you can view my entire set of photos as well.

In the early morning hours of 11/13/2011, thousands gathered at the site of Occupy Portland's encampment to rally and protest the group's eviction from city parks.  The scene was mostly calm despite a strong police presence and a few outliers who seemed to want violence.
