Occupy Portland Protesters Leave Park Peacefully

Hours after peacefully leaving two downtown Portland, Ore., parks on police orders, Occupy demonstrators were still in the streets facing lines of cops in riot gear, barring them from returning to their encampments.

The Occupy Portland demonstrators' decision to leave the parks around 8 a.m. seemed to defuse a tense situation that threatened the kind of violent confrontations that have occurred in Oakland, Calif., and other cities in recent weeks.
