(Portland) People Have The Power

From TOWLEROAD:

On Sunday night, more than 4,000 people showed up to a Facebook-organized demonstration against last week’s anti-gay hate crime in Portland, Oregon and held hands across the Hawthorne bridge where the attack occurred.

Earlier I reported that volunteer patrols had started in the area.

Just Out reports:

Demonstrators packed into the space beneath the west side of the bridge at about 7:30 p.m., spilling over onto the ramp and stairs to hear from the attack’s survivors, Brad Forkner and Christopher Rosevear. Afterward, the crowd filed down both sides of the bridge with hands held. Despite being tightly packed together, some attendees could not fit on the bridge.
