(Portland, OR) -- The barricades are coming down from around Portland's "Red House on Mississippi." Mayor Ted Wheeler says the city reached a deal with the family living at the home on Saturday. Activists on Twitter say protesters began taking down their barricades yesterday after police agreed not to forcibly remove the family from the home while negotiations continue. Protesters flocked to the home last week after police forcibly evicted the Black and Indigenous family who lives there. The family had owned the home since the 1950s but suffered a foreclosure after missing payments on their second mortgage.
