Occupy Portland

Two downtown Portland parks where Occupy Portland demonstrators camped for weeks are clear Monday and police say crews will be removing debris and assessing damage. Sgt. Pete Simpson says a small group marched through the early morning hours on sidewalks and two people were arrested for minor infractions, but things were mostly peaceful compared to Sunday, when riot police forced several hundred demonstrators out of the parks and arrested more than 50 people. Mayor Sam Adams ordered the camps cleared over the weekend because of unhealthy conditions, drug use and other crime. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
