<video> Homeless Protest City Hall Montage

Here is a few outtakes from the ongoing Protest at City Hall that is fighting for human rights and a place for one to go if you are homeless
This was filmed in the first weeks of May 2008 outside of Portland City Hall
Attention to the fact that sleeping is considered a crime and that those that are poor and homeless have no where safe they can go and sit, sleep, or just relax

The protest is calling for a repeal of the "No sit - No lie" law and the "No - Camping" law
Both of these laws are used to "move - along" the people with no where to go

This is a 10 minute YouTube video montage:
