I've been busy following what's going on here in Seattle....and Portland. Our Mayor, whom I don't normally like, is trying really hard to make it as easy as possible for the demonstrators to continue on. The problem here, like other cities, is that it's against the law to camp in the parks...and that's what's happening. The demonstrators are camping in one of the parks downtown.
I haven't heard of any of the protesters attending rallies armed to the teeth.I agree with much of what they're protesting, with what I've heard in interviews & the signs they're carrying. Many seem to be anti-war too.
