On the busiest shopping day of the year, let's send overconsumers a reminder: they're living off the backs of future generations.

Organize the day of at at 1:00pm Salmon and Park. Bring
signs, flyers, noise makers, etc. At this point there are no projections of attendance but rumors state there are flyers up in Beverton and Gresham.
In Defense of Animals is organizing a march in downtown Portland (since this is Fur Free Friday as well) which will stop at several fur retailers. for more info, go to www.FurKills.org.
2pm - there will be a street celebration at the Lloyd Center. meet at Holladay Park on the southern side of Lloyd Center (next to the MAX stop). The theme of this party will be a festival against capital. There are no plans as to what form this party will take, that will be determined by
whatever people want to do at the time. This may turn out to be a street party, a march or a demonstration - or a bit of each. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own literature and flags. Dress up, bring noisemakers, and
have fun. If the media asks what we're doing, tell them we're celebrating Vera Katz's re-election. We are hoping to create an environment of festivities, pranks, and all-around anti-consumer behavior. Just show up to have a good time.
5:30 pm - there is a community picnic under the west end of the Burnside Bridge. bring some food to share (how you acquire it is up to you, as long as no money was exchanged in the process) The Critical Mass bike ride will
also leave from this point.
Evening - come up with your own creative anti-capital actions. See you there.
