I was excited to get the camera out and walk among the masses for this one. Then i got sleepy.
I was just going to sleep this day away as it was my day off and i was tired.
Sweet D called me and put me on alert. She could see all the people assembling from her building across the river and it looked like something that I would be in the middle of and I had already told her that I would be down there snapping shots of the goings on.
So I got off my ass and I headed down to the water front park where they were getting hyped up for the occupy portland march.
Here is part one from the water front park .
from here they marched to pioneer square which will be part 2 (with video)
Later they then marched to the park located across the street from city hall and spent the night there.
They started with upwards of 5000 people. When I checked on them this morning there was only probably o 250 hardcore people that spent the night in the park and they were being told that they had to vacate the park by 10am.
I bounced at 9.
