LOS ANGELES — Police evicted some 200 anti-Wall Street protesters Sunday without incident from downtown Portland, Oregon, the latest city to act against the encampments, officials said.

A police spokesman in the north-western US city told KATU TV that the evictions were “totally peaceful” and that most of the protesters left voluntarily with no use of force.

Late Saturday, a few thousand people gathered in downtown Portland in support of about 200 protesters who refused to break camp.

Mayor Sam Adams said officials would be “very patient” in removing the demonstrators.

“Parks are going to be closed to the public, effective when the police bureau feels it can be done in a peaceful and successful way,” he told journalists.
