Is Re-occupying Chapman Park
PORTLAND, Ore. – Occupy Portland is back.
The group is setting up camp again across from the Justice Center and promising to fill Chapman Park.
People are gathering at the Justice Center. The group is protesting repression, war, injustice, poverty, joblessness, homelessness and inequity. They also stand in support of basic civil rights and against police brutality. Group members are writing sidewalk messages...
This reoccupation is part of a Worldwide Wave of Action that started Friday with former Occupy sites in 10 cities across the nation. The liberation and civic-engagement group occupied the parks in front of the justice center for more than a month in 2011.
