On 8/16, a well planned action took place at several army/military
recruiting offices in Portland. At the end of the days actions, all
groups of protesters met up at the Lloyd Center Recruiting Office
for a mass protest. They marched from there across town to an
Obama Campaign Training Facility where they Occupied the
building and 6 persons went into the office and refused to leave.

Upon closing time of the office, the protesters would not budge
and were locked in the facility by management. Portland Police
were called and around a dozen cops showed up. They were
advised by a liason that the protesters intended to stay until
PFC Bradley Manning was released and the police stated that
"that is an unreal demand". They asked if the protesters
intended to be arrested (which they did) and proceeded to
bring in the wagon, enter the building, and arrest 5 protesters.

Remaining supporters marched to the downtown Justice Center
in solidarity and the people were released within two hours of
being arrested. This is part of a national solidarity effort and day
of action to free Private Bradley Manning.
