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.
