On 9/28/15 in Portland Oregon I filmed this interview in North Portland.
I was with Film The Police Bob (FTP) around Overlook park around 9am when we seen a cop car pull into the park, we walked over to see what they were up to. The homeless lady we approach in the park said that the cops left when they seen us two walking up, she also told us about a lot of crappy things that were going on and how mistreated she felt over a variety of failing systems and services. The police hassling folks like her is not warranted nor needed. WATCH --> VIDEO LINK: Homeless Crime Victim Harassed by the Portland Cops 9.28.15 [15 minute video]
In 2012 I interviewed "Metal" who was at the Homeless Prayer Vigil at City Hall in Portland Oregon.
Occupy Portland had ended just weeks prior to this interview
Sleep is a Human Right - Metal at City Hall Homeless Vigil 1.5.12.
I stop by the vigil for house less folks that is going on 24-7 in front of Portland City Hall. This was around noon on Thursday 1.5.11. Metal tells me what is happening with regards to this vigil outside of city halls front doors. He tells me about his involvement the vigil, which began after Occupy Portland protesters was evicted from the parks across the street.

The demands for justice and human rights was on display at Pioneer Square on April Fools Day. The foolish law to fine a peaceful camp of houseless citizens who are staying in an empty lot on Burnside is exposed and challenged in the public square. The fines of over 2,000$ levied against this homeless group [and the land owner] shows the callous insensitive criminal intentions of our http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifchttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifity leaders to those who are living without a home in our city. http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif ====== ====== We Wont Get Fooled Again 4 part video set Right 2 Dream 2 -Protest / Rally
