Occupy Portland activist and former mayoral candidate Cameron Whitten continued his hunger strike in front of City Hall today.

Whitten, who began his strike on Saturday, is demanding a withdrawal of the fines against the Right to Dream Too Rest Area downtown.

He is also advocating for the addition of a housing levy to the November General Election ballot, and a one-year moratorium on Wall Street bank foreclosures in Multnomah County.

KBOO's Zeke Harrington spoke with Cameron Whitten outside of City Hall for more on his hunger strike.
