this just in:
A pdx indymedia reporter at the corner of 2nd & Stark downtown is reporting that a tripod has been set up in the middle of the street in front of the Forest Building. (A tripod is a tall structure that elevates a person high above the ground. They're most often used in road blockades, and have the advantage of being difficult to take down once they're up.)
Police are on the scene, trying to determine how to get the person down. Supporters are on the sidewalk (previously they were in the street), chanting, etc.
This action is to demand an end to all logging in the Biscuit, in southern 'Oregon'.
