Occupy Portland’s Action Committee has issued a call for decentralized-yet-coordinated nonviolent civil disobedience against big banks.  Let’s shut them down!

We invite everyone to join the public march on the morning of Thursday November 17th.

  • The action starts @ 8am on the East Side of Steel Bridge with an action in support of organized labor demanding Jobs Not Cuts, hosted by We Are Oregon.
  • Then join us for a 10am Rally at Waterfront Park @ SW Ankeny.
  • At 11am we march to visit civil disobedience actions in progress!

You can also get involved by forming an “affinity group” action team or by offering a variety of no-risk-of-arrest support roles.

    what do you all think about holding a march on the 17th from 3-5 (?) downtown, ending at B of A on west main next to Alba, where we would disseminate info on occupy medford, I´be handing out constitutions, reminding people to move their money and other various mind expanding tidbits. I will be attending city council meeting at 12.

Famous Quotes

  • “The greatest threat to our world and its peace comes from those who want war, who prepare for it, and who, by holding out vague promises of future peace or by instilling fear of foreign aggression, try to make us accomplices to their plans.” -Hermann Hesse – Author (1877-1962)
