Portland Police Arrest 50 Occupy Portland Protesters

Portland police “arrested more than 50 people on Sunday as the authorities cleared out and blocked off encampments of the Occupy movement that has been protesting nationwide over economic issues.” Protesters chanted, “I don’t see no riot here, take off your riot gear,” as they resisted efforts to evict them from the public spaces in which they had encamped. Protesters will continue to move to different spaces in an attempt to maintain the occupation.
