On Sunday, November 13, 2011, Portland Police evicted protesters from Occupy Portland's encampment at Lownsdale and Chapman Squares (aka, the "Plaza Blocks").
Between 5000 and 6000 supporters rallied at Occupy Portland's Plaza Blocks encampment late Saturday night, postponing the planned midnight eviction until Sunday morning.

Other Groups and Events

Occupy Oregon Statewide Strategy Work Group

Emerging national strategy calls for state Occupation groups nationwide to occupy their capitols to begin dialogues with legislators. Occupation movements from each of the states will be responsible for initiating that process.

FOR has partnered with the Wall Street Occupation since its beginning. In October, 2011 the Oregon chapter of FOR (OFOR) offered free registration to their Annual Retreat to Occupy Oregon participants from Portland, Salem, Eugene, Corvallis, Ashland and all Oregon Occupations to convene a work group to develop a statewide strategy and proposals for their respective Occupation groups.[1] OFOR is also interested in the Occupy consensus-based process.

Right 2 Survive | Right 2 Dream Too (R2D2)

Right 2 Survive has set up a camp advocating for houseless people, Right 2 Dream Too (R2D2) at the corner of NW 4th Avenue and West Burnside Street on the vacant lot next to the Chinatown gate. The site officially opened on Monday, October 10th, 2011 which is National Homeless Day. The organizers are extending an open invitation to the community to come down and celebrate National Homeless Day at their new camp.[2]

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this and other Occupy Portland-related work on PortlandWiki is to provide a central organizing space for all relevant information and work related to this gathering that anyone can access and contribute to. Occupy Portland is a "leaderless movement" engaged in direct democracy. We are all involved in working out the details in how this movement is organized. To view upcoming events that Occupy Portland and/or other sponsoring organizations that share the same vision as OP, please view the Occupy Portland Events page. To contact an OP events coordinator, please email actioncommitteepdx@googlegroups.com. We love working with like-minded organizations and create a greater presence while trying to make our collective voices heard.

Occupy Portland is leaderless, but not structureless. The central and primary web site for the movement is OccupyPortland.org. To help organize, please consider OccupyPortland.org or the General Assembly as primary information resources. To ask a basic question or get a quick orientation, please check out the Occupy Portland Facebook page.

About Occupy Portland

Occupy Portland is Portland's answer to the Occupy Wall Street movement happening in New York City. The demonstration of solidarity with the Wall Street protesters will begin at noon on Thursday, October 6th, 2011 with a march out of SW Waterfront Park. Following the march, a public space in Portland will be "occupied" and used a a central location for meetings, events, and communications. (For logistical reasons, the exact location of the occupation site has not yet been announced.)

From the official website:

"We will gather in solidarity with the ongoing protest in New York City, Occupy Wall Street, and the growing number of cities whose people will no longer sit back watching corporate and special interests run their government. We are citizens of the United States, and this country is ours. We will take it back."

A note about Occupy Portland on PortlandWiki:

Q: Is the information here on PortlandWiki a redundant replication of data presented on Occupy Portland’s web site, facebook page, twitter feed, etc?
A: Some of it may be but the point is to ensure that everyone has access to information in many forms. Not everyone uses Facebook or Twitter (or knows how to), or can make sense of the different levels of information on the various Occupy sites. The Occupy Portland work here on the wiki adds value by consolidating, digesting, archiving, expanding and organizing material found on various websites, discussion groups, social media feeds, and so on.
