Ore. police arrest about 30 Wall Street protestersPortland police arrest about 30 anti-Wall Street protesters who refuse to leave park
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) ' Police arrested about 30 demonstrators early Sunday with the Occupy Portland movement after they refused to leave a park in an affluent district after a midnight curfew.
Police pulled vans up to a group of about 27-30 protesters sitting in a circle at Jamison Square and began arresting them one-by-one.
An Associated Press photographer says most of the protesters went limp and police carried or dragged them away. There was no violence during the 90-minute period of arrests.
The protesters ' all appearing to be in their 20s and 30s ' were handcuffed before they were driven off. One continued to chant "we are the 99 percent."
Dozens of other protesters remained on the edges of the park in a show of support, but the crowd thinned out around 3:30 a.m. as the last arrests were made.
