Portland Peace Camp may be evicted.

From the open publishing newswire:
I talked with members of the Portland Peace Camp, the group of students and activists who are camping out in Terry Shrunk Plaza. They were visited today by an officer of the Department of Homeland Security who told them that the feds want them out by 9:00 AM Saturday. According to the camp, the officer first told them that the feds would "appreciate it" if the camp was cleared out by 9. Then, when pressed, he told them that 9 was, indeed, a deadline for removal. After the activists asked for his name and badge number, according to the activists the officer then began waffling on whether or not 9 was a real deadline.

They need your support! Show up at 8:30 AM tommorrow, and bring food, hugs, warm beverages, cameras, and peace.
