As WW reported yesterday, One Billion Rising PDX did not obtain a permit for today's march from the Portland Police. In a statement on the Facebook page for the event, organizers wrote
The organizers commented on their Facebook page today that despite the lack of permit, the march is meant to be nonviolent and without any calls for violence or property damage, stating:
In our march, there will be many, many survivors of violence and it is for this reason that we hope this march will remain peaceful.
WW will be reporting live at the scene of the rally, which begins at downtown's Director Park at 3 pm PST.
