Shots were fired in the vicinity of the Portland Peace Encampment in the early morning hours approx. 1:00am 3/31/03. Portland police arrived on the scene with out being called to inquire about the incident. No one in the camp had any information on the alleged shooting. Campers were either sleeping or so peroccupied with chit-chat and in socializing that no one was sure whether or not the shots were directed at the camp. Some people are so out of it that, although they were awake at the time, claimed that they heard nothing at all. The shots were however close enough to awaken one battle hardened camper who, having realized that no one was injured, yawned and went back to sleep.
Peace Camp is soaked this morning. Needs: Bus tickets, and, as always, coffee and cigarettes. Also needs influx of militant defenders to prevent possible eviction.
