City Officials Attempting To Clear Laurelhurst Park Homeless Camp Met With Opposition From Activists

(Portland, OR)  --  The City of Portland is moving forward with clearing dozens of residents from a large homeless encampment along Laurelhurst Park.  On Thursday morning, police, park rangers, and several biohazard crews began clearing the area.  They were met by activists opposing the move amid ongoing pandemic concerns and the current housing crisis.  Many of the temporary residents had been staying in the park for nearly a year at this point, since the early onset of the pandemic.
