Yes, let Portland City Hall co-opt your movement, then be sure to get an official permit to exercise your first amendment rights.
It's the protest where everyone gets along and no one is inconvenienced! Sam Adams approved! You all could wear stickers with his picture giving a big thumbs up sign.
Now real advice: Stop running a homeless camp. Your intentions are good but it is leading you far afield. Stick to marching and protesting. Do it often, but not so often that only 12 people show up.
Go after the banks. If you're going to get arrested do it for sitting in a BofA branch, not for sitting in Jamison Square. The protest for Jamie Dimon's visit was pretty paltry. If you skip a target like that, what are you guys protesting exactly? The police?
p.s. Most of Occupy Portland is completely opposed to (and pissed about) the "official" statement on the website. Once more, a small group of reformists are pretending to speak for the movement.,
