<videos> 3 parts from - CITY HALL HOMELESS Press Conference 5-13-08

The Mayor of Portland met with organizers of the Homeless Protest at City Hall
This was on Tuesday 5-13-08
The meeting did little to fix any concerns...
Here are three video clips from that afternoon at City Hall
Press Conference 5-13-08 City Hall Homeless Protest
Press Conference 5-13-08 City Hall Homeless Protest
I was able to record most of the press/meeting that was not closed to the public.
There is footage from the outside on the front steps of City Hall in videos 2 & 3

The main issue was repelling the sit lie laws and to remove the no camping laws Yet after the meeting these issues are still not resolved regarding having a place too sleep if one is homeless or housless here in Portland and one is still decriminalized for sleeping outside
