The pictures (of the one day, rally) comprise a very different population then that of the "camp" downtown. The camp of "occupiers" is comprised of mostly homeless/street kids and whatnot, or so it appears. They have also cordoned of a main road accessing the bridge to the east-side. The city has been tolerant so far, but it does want that main road accessible and if the "occupiers" continue to block it, the city will eventually force the issue. Beyond that, the situation is day-to-day. If the "occupiers" continue to "protest" peacefully, they will probably be left to do so, for now... Frankly though, it is becoming less and less an effective demonstration and I won't be surprised to see this whole thing into a rally for "official" temporary homeless camps, before long...

Thanks for the link Lady

As of this morning, 8 arrested to clear the street. But Occupiers will be allowed to continue staying in the parks.

www.msnbc.msn.com...

"88 percent of 'Occupy Portland' protesters wanted to vacate Main Street. By earlier agreement, 90 percent is required for anything to move forward, he said. That seems like a high bar for concensus but he said "we have been trying hard not to disenfranchise the disenfranchised. ""

I respect the attempt to get 90% to agree on a thing...how difficult that can be.
