Occupy Portland was a collaboration that began on October 6, 2011 in downtown Portland as a protest and demonstration against economic inequality worldwide. It was inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York City on September 17, 2011.

The movement's initial March drew an estimated 10,000 to Pioneer Courthouse Square. The protesters later set up an encampment in the Plaza Blocks Park near Portland City Hall. The Plaza Blocks include Lownsdale Square on the north side and Chapman Square to the south, which were the focus of the encampment. Several people where killed as protests including demonstrations against Federal police.
