Occupy Portland Gearing up to Fight
[link to www.kgw.com]

"PORTLAND -- Occupy Portland protesters have not leave two downtown parks after Mayor Sam Adams delivered a deadline for protesters to leave the downtown encampments.

Police Friday said they had reason to think some in the camp were arming for a confrontation, calling for reinforcements from Seattle and San Francisco, along with constructing weapons and fortifications, allegations Occupy spokespeople denied.

Police said hundreds were possibly heading to Portland and people may be in trees during any police action. Officers said a hole was being dugin one of the parks, reinforced by wood. Some protesters were also thought to be hammering nails into pieces of wood for weapons and gathering gas masks."

The anarchists are spoiling for a fight.

Police brace for conflict as Occupy deadline nears~

By JONATHAN J. COOPER, Associated Press

"But authorities said Friday that a call for reinforcements has gone out to other cities, and as many as 150 anarchists may come to Portland. Police also say some elements may be building shields and looking for gas masks."

Re: Occupy Portland Gearing up to Fight
The Columbian article has been updated. Sadly, Occupy Portland is full of peaceful protestors that will be caught if the clearing of the park turns violent. They foolishly believe that they won't be caught in crossfire. I will have no sympathy for any crying Sunday because a rioter smacked them in the face with a nailed board. They've had their warning. The Portland police have done exceptionally well in making any arrests and I hope they are able to continue to do so.

“If there are anarchists, if there are weapons, if there is an intention to engage in violence and confrontation, that obviously raises our concerns,” Portland police Lt. Robert King said. “But I know we’ll be able work through that and manage that, because we want to protect everyone there, especially the peaceful protester.”

The peaceful protesters still cooperating with police, trying to self-police.


Police remove plywood, concrete from Occupy Portland-

[link to www.kptv.com]


"A skirmish erupted this afternoon when officers went into the Occupy Portland camp to remove plywood and concrete, police say."

"This was given to us, basically by Occupy Portland. This is concrete and a brick. We were told would be used against police if we came into the park to make arrests. ... The plywood's being used to develop shields," King says."
