Portland’s mayor on Thursday ordered Occupy Portland to take down its tent city on two adjacent downtown parks by midnight Saturday, saying conditions at the camp have become dangerous, unhealthy and a refuge for criminals.
Mayor Sam Adams said Occupy Portland “has had considerable time to share its movement’s messages with the public, but has lost control of the camps it created.”
A 29-year-old man at the Occupy Portland encampment was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of throwing an improvised incendiary device at a downtown office building, the latest in a series of incidents that has shaken the confidence of many of the movement’s supporters in city government.
