For 22 minutes concerned citizens (lied on the floor" died to bring awareness of the 22 thousand people who die each year due to a lack of health care

This video documents the speeches before the Die In and then follows the folks into Earls office where about 20 people lay down in the office... more lie in the hall.... and about 25 more lay down outside on the sidewalk

A few cops were on hand "watching"
They remained off to the side or "in the hallway" but didn't interfere, nor arrest or hassle anyone

From what I was told Earl Blumenauer does NOT support "Single Payer Health Care"
This protest was held in NE Portland at Earl's office on Oregon street
