"High Pedestrian Zone"? 23.Jul.2013 17:32

"High Pedestrian Zone" is what the city is now calling the sidewalk in front of city hall

The water hoses were out this morning

I heard a couple protesters 'almost were arrested /or/ wanted to get arrested to challenge the illegality' but they walked away [escorted?] in time to avoid the arrest

No Door on The Mens Rest Room - Human Rights and Dignity Issues 27.Jul.2013 17:57

NO DOOR ON THE MENS REST ROOM?

[This is an out take from the full video that was then edited to help point out this unacceptable issue of respect and privacy regarding bathroom issues and our city parks]

Why is there no door on the Mens Rest Room in Lonsdale Park in Portland Oregon?
On 7.22.13 a houseless activist protester is handcuffed, to a tree as he brings to light the human rights and dignity / equity issue of the "No door on the Mens Rest Room" in the park by city hall. Oddly there is total silence by the Park Rangers. I suspect they know its wrong but do not want to say nor be involved? What will be interesting is "who is pushing for this to issue to stay as it is (sick) or who will make the change for what is right so that all citizens are treated equal and with respect and dignity when it comes to using a public restroom in one of our cities park!?
