VIDEO: Riot Police Clash With Occupy Portland Protesters


This footage was taken by WW reporters earlier today, when police moved in to clear Occupy Portland protesters from Lownsdale and Chapman parks. TV media has been reporting that police only used batons to push protesters back, but this footage appears to show an officer striking his baton down on the crowds.

UPDATE: @johnrbeer on Twitter says "Actually I think he's smashing the breakfast table, which came out a few minutes later split in half."

Here's more footage of heated clashes between protestors and police:
