PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Occupy Portland volunteers expect a visit Monday afternoon from filmmaker Michael Moore.

Volunteers also say demonstrators following a Halloween-inspired zombie theme will march from Lownsdown Square to a Bank of America to protest the bank's coal interests.

The Occupy Portland demonstration began Oct. 6 in support of the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York. Portland is allowing camping downtown at Lownsdown Square and Chapman Square, but 27 people were arrested early Sunday for refusing to leave Jamison Square Park in the Pearl District after the park closed at midnight.
