According to the following article posted here by KOMO:

There is a protest taking place this afternoon to protest what is claimed to be preferential treatment of a local businessman in a string of DUI arrests. 

In an interview with one of the organizers, Sam, had the following to share with me:

There shouldn't be two seperate legal systems, one for the rich and one for the poor. This is not "about" Goodman, this is about the legal system as a whole. But his case is an analogy for the greater injustice taking place."

The protestors will be meeting at 3:00 PM on the corner of Deschutes Parkway and Lakeridge, and marching up the hill.
