Hands Up Don't Shoot - Portland Solidarity w/ Ferguson Protest.
Labor Day Solidarity Traffic Shutdown Protest at 2:30 pm.
Around 100 people gathered in Holladay Park for the protest march: Hands Up Don't Shoot"


The PDX march went across the street (in the street), then through the biggest indoor mall on the West coast (Lloyd Center) and then back into the streets, (NE Broadway) blocking the entire street with no police in sight (thus no violence!!) the 100 people walked toward the Broadway bridge, at 2:30 pm in solidarity w/ the request fro those in Ferguson the group stopped and blocked traffic. Although talk was to 'head to the bridge' a quick change in plan resulted in the "freeway on-ramp going north to I-5 was shut down by a "Sit-In" for about 10 minutes".
