Occupy Portland pics thread!
Twenty years in this town and it never ceases to amaze me. A thrilling, invigorating experience. We have much work to do.

Great to meet you, Quakerboy!

2. Portland, you've done all of us proud!
Listening to Carl on KPOJ, who also posted photos, and my heart and hope are soaring over here East of the Cascades. Let's keep it going!

Great photos, BTW. Thanks so much for posting!

Thanks and blessings!

6. More Occupy Portland Pics
I've posted a series of pics from the event here: http://chriswinter.blogspot.com/2011/10/faces-of-occupy...

And funny enough, that's me with the camera in the yellow bike jacket in picture above.

7. Great pics!
Also funny enough, I was able to find about a half-dozen of my pals in your shots. Really nice work.

And welcome to DU!

8. Same.
Edited on Sat Oct-08-11 12:37 AM by quakerboy
First time I have ever knowingly met another DU'r in person.

Funny enough, I haven't yet seen myself in any posted pictures (not a request, I generally avoid photos, but there were so many cameras going, I figured it was unavoidable). I know I'm on the net though, because I saw one girl marching ahead, working her phone with a solid candid shot of, me posting it to Facebook with a snarky comment(who knew you can read an Iphone screen over a shoulder several feet ahead?). Apparently I didn't look like a proper protester or something.


Anyone get a picture of the "eat the rich" sign?

9. Orwell never envisioned
That we'd all willingly be carrying around the cameras.

Watching raw video from the Brooklyn Bridge OWS march, there were as many NYPD with cameras as there were protesters photographing the entrapment. Interesting . . . like an image-capture battle.

12. shout out to all those youngsters who rode 33 Tri-Met this afternoon...
...including the cheerful girl in the chicken hat! The bus was stopped by some sort of major police/rescue incident on McLoughlin; these kids just got off the bus and started truckin' to occupy the town!

Power to the people!
