Occupy protesters defy eviction order in Oregon ; dozens arrested elsewhere
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ' Police in Portland, Ore., have begun moving in on a downtown park, where a few hundred Occupy Portland demonstrators have remained in defiance of an eviction order.
Police on loudspeakers are warning that anyone who resists risks arrest and "may also be subject to chemical agents and impact weapons."
Demonstrators chanted "we are a peaceful protest."
Mayor Sam Adams had ordered the camp shut down last night, citing unhealthy conditions and the encampment's attraction of drug users and thieves.
