Kicked To The Curb Portland's Homeless Documentary

There was no concern for Safety when the Protesters were "Kicked to The Curb"
There was more "blocking the bus access by police than those who had feet in the streets
There was police man power used to arrest people who have no where to go
There is people sleeping 6 inches from the street ...what kind of compassion or decency is that showing?

Watch - "Kicked To The Curb" a 16 minute documentary on the treatment of the homeless in Portland Oregon who try to stand up for their right to the sidewalks

Videos from Homeless Protets City Hall - Portland Oregon

I have a collection of videos from the City Hall Houseless Protest that has been going on for the last two weeks in Portland Oregon
It looks like the Police (City) is planning on removing the protesting homeless people on Tuesday May 13 (A notice was posted informing the folks with no homes or shelter that they would be arrested for being at this protest as of the day on the flier)

I just uploaded this 45 minute long video from the meeting of protesters on the sidewalk out front of City Hall in regards to the seven fellow activists/ homeless who were jailed earlier that day. This meeting was filmed on Saturday 5-10-08 around 7:30 pm
It is being uploaded to Google

Portland City Hall Homeless Protest Report from May 1st 2008

It is May Day when I filmed this
The protest march I am with, swings by City Hall
I latter stop in and talk to lots of neat people at the Homeless Vigil
Some are homeless, some are activists, some are politicians, both the old and the young
Lots of diversity and an array of concerned people
I wanted to stay longer
I wanted to help ...just by being there in solidarity with my camera if needed,
to capture what ever important moment might need to be recorded.
But I did get these following YouTube video clips documented
It is May 3 today and I am still uploading video to the Internet from this vigil
In Solidarity filming for - Peace - Love - Justice

This is a collection of three (3) videos all from May 1st at the Homeless Camp Protest And as I finish the editing I will have a couple more still to post by tomorrow
