My friend Father Oblivion writes: "I went by Occupy Portland with a friend visiting from Philadelphia last night. We talked with my friend Mike, who is one of the videographers there. He said that the Portland Occupy group numbers about 600, with about 100 being demonstrators and the remaining being various homeless people and drug addicts, many of whom were sent down to Occupy by the city's shelters. Mike has made several videos (over two dozen) of interviews of people who relate that they were told that they should go down to Occupy and they will be fed and that there is a medical staff there who will help with their problems. Some of the videos detail when they were told this and who told them as well."
We can expect to see changes in tactics during the next few weeks in response to changing methods of suppression.
