Since things are getting slow I want to take this time to state that tonight, I am so proud of the people of Portland. The way they went about this
was amazing and they should be proud of themselves.
I hope all that were watching, take notes and remember just how well nonviolent resistance can and does work.
Of course, there were a few idiots, but the group as a whole ousted them and kept it peaceful.
I also want to show my great respect to the police who also remained peaceful and worked hard to ensure the safety of everyone.
What we have all witnessed, is an amazing thing and honestly, regardless of what you may feel about OWS, I think any of us who sat here and watched
the whole thing, can sit here and say, good job Portland protestors and good job Portland police.
The restraint, respect and peaceful intentions by both groups as a whole, is something that should be noted and recognized.
This thread has been equally amazing. Bringing may of us together who have different viewpoints. It was so nice to see us all discuss and watch with
out all the usual bickering and going at it. This thread is a great example of what ATS is all about.
Be proud of that, everyone.
I sit here thinking to myself and I have no problem saying.
