Report on Sunday's Free Gaza protest at Pioneer Square

Around 250 people gathered Sunday afternoon at the corner of Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland (of course forbidden from using the square itself, because Portland's main public square is PRIVATELY owned....but that's another issue). The protesters, as in the Tuesday and Friday protests, were mainly from Portland's Arab-American community. Supporters from the peace and justice community were also present, and the protest lined the sidewalks on all four corners at SW 7th and Salmon.
