A group of homeless protestors have been camped out in front of city hall for the last ten days.  The protestors are meeting with the mayor this afternoon and will be speaking before City Council on Wednesday.

KBOO’s Kyle Burris interviewed one of the protestors, Joseph Vanderheiden, about what they want to see changed and about being harassed by the police:

The group met with Mayor Potter late this afternoon.

Potter told them,  "If what we're doing for you isn't good enough, then I give up".

Police have told members of the encampment that they will be conducting a sweep sometime tonight.
