Occupy Portland Protesters Gather In Downtown Portland

Oct 6, 2011

PORTLAND - Protesters gathered Thursday in downtown Portland for a demonstration in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. The protest drew people from different traditions. A number were relatively new to the Portland protest scene. Jordan Ladoux (lah-DOO) says he’s concerned about American government and the economy.

Jordan Ladoux "I've understood for a long time the way our society works doesn't work for most people. More than anything I just want to get my voice out there, that that's what I think. What we're doing isn't working."

Organizers planned to march to an afternoon rally at Pioneer Courthouse Square. They intend to stay downtown Thursday night. It's not clear if city leaders will let them.
