My discussion thread was in response to the following Oregonian article with respect to the WCW demonstration today:
Downtown Portland protest ends peacefully
Downtown Portland traffic stopped off and on from about 2 to 3:40 p.m. Thursday as the "World Can't Wait" protest paraded from Southwest Third Avenue and Washington Street to Southwest 12th Avenue and Jefferson Street.
The event protesting President Bush and the Iraq war was one of more than 200 scheduled nationwide, aiming to close schools and workplaces, according to the World Can't Wait Web site. Fewer than 400 people marched in the loud but orderly Portland protest, which paused in front of The Oregonian building.
The Portland Police Bureau reported 10 arrests on disorderly conduct charges, one beanbag round fired at 12th and Jefferson, and no injuries.
