Add comment on:Occupy the Northwest
The Occupy Seattle economic justice vigil is facing a mass arrest scene today in Westlake Park downtown (10/4/2011), while several Occupy actions are getting started in Oregon. The three general assemblies held in Portland have attracted up to 300 people, while the facebook organizing group now has 10,000 members. The kickoff rally for Portland is scheduled Thursday at noon at the waterfront park by Burnside bridge, and is expected to have many participants. The site of the occupation zone has not been announced but there are rumors that it won't be waterfront park (where the homeless often are shunted) and might be a park block more central to downtown. Additional rallies and events have been planned in Salem and Eugene.
