Portland Peace Encampment scheduled to be terminated with-in next 14 hours.

The Portland Peace Encampment will most likely fall victum to oppresion like never seen before during there close to 5 month stay. Citing the new sit-lie (stand) city ordinance and their new guidelines of enforcement the Portland Police will attempt to end the Vigil before Mayor Katz returns from her extended vacation on Wednesday morning. Many say the camp will be swept to its end because the Mayor is very unhappy it still exists across from Portland City Hall. Officer's decrestion is the key term here. It's up to them to decide who and how those are in violation.

This peace vigil has been an inspiration to me and to many others, I am sure. To know people are outside making the presence of truth and conscience known . The presence of peace! I know there must be a way to keep this vigil going, if even in another manifestation/direction.

Love and Blessings to all of you campers for peace!

Sanity, Safety, Reason, and Grace to you in times of trouble.
