Funeral for Carlo Giuliani in Portland

Approximately 200 people showed up in Pioneer Courthouse Square to express grief, anger, and determination in the aftermath of severe police repression against anti-G8 protestors in Italy. After several speeches the group marched silently up Broadway in downtown Portland to the slow beat of a drum. The police were going to give the protestors one lane of traffic but did not intervene as they took the whole street. The group carried a black coffin at its head, and held a die-in at the Oregonian and another at the Italian Consulate.
