I met Justin James Bridges at Occupy Portland

On Friday night he was talking into the camera for OP's livestream internet channel, confidently inviting the audience to drop by Chapman and Lownsdale squares the next day for festivities that included a planned potluck dinner and live music in support of the movement. On Saturday evening he was playing in the rain for the assembled protesters on the amphitheater steps at Terry Schrunk Plaza. By Sunday night, Bridges was bedridden at Legacy Emanuel Hospital, recovering from alleged police brutality earlier that day during the final sweeps by authorities of the last Occupy holdouts. And on Monday, he addressed the now homeless Occupy Portland General Assembly in Pioneer Square from a wheelchair.
