'Red House' in Portland is focus of gentrification protest

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Barricades blocking a part of a neighborhood in Portland have been dismantled after a Black and Indigenous family struck a tentative deal with city officials to buy back the house they lost to foreclosure.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports activists said police had agreed not to force the family to leave the home while negotiations were ongoing — as long as the street was cleared by Monday night.

People began clearing the barricades Sunday, and they were largely removed by day’s end.

Fencing, lumber and other impediments had gone up last Tuesday after officers arrested about a dozen people in a clash over the eviction of the Kinney family from the North Portland home.
