Demonstrators Erect Barricades Around 'Red House On Mississippi'

(Portland, OR)  --  More than a hundred demonstrators remain camped out around a house in Portland to prevent the ouster of a Black and Indigenous family who's owned the home since the 1950s.  Portland Police and Multnomah County Sheriff's deputies arrested longtime resident William Nietzche and six other people at the so-called "Red House on Mississippi" yesterday morning.  Police then fenced the house up and left, but hundreds of protesters who had gathered at the scene swiftly pulled down the fencing and put up their own barricades.  Nietzche's family was evicted from the home in September after failing to make payments on a second mortgage.  The family says they're the victim of a predatory loan company.
