so, get off your 'arse' and put something together...

How about this... 03.Nov.2001 17:50


..everybody just meet at Pioneer Courthouse square say at 1 PM and just figure out what to do from there. I think a planned action is pretty much out of the question at this point. I'm mean it took a couple of months to arrange the May Day protest! And we only have six days.

...everybody meet together at say 1PM and try to come up with something there. I think it's already too late to have a planned event. I mean the May Day march took a couple months to organize, and this is only 6 days away!

Make it 5pm 04.Nov.2001 15:53


Better to organize the Pioneer Square gathering on the 9th at 5pm, so that people coming from work can attend.

Sounds good to me 05.Nov.2001 00:11


Anyone else interested? It would probably be good to bring lots of pamphlets 'n shit too. If it appears the action wont be any good we could always decide right there to have an action on Sat. or Sun. So how about it? 5 PM

What the hell? 05.Nov.2001 14:34


This is the second time it wouldn't let me post something without posting another comment.

Peace Vigil 07.Nov.2001 17:28


Are you aware that there is a Peace Vigil at Pioneer Square at 5pm on Friday night's? Maybe we get them to join us.

As you can see on the calendar... there is a meeting at 5pm at Pioneer Square Courthouse..

5 PM
Pioneer Square Courthouse

this will coexist with the current vigil planned for friday at the same timeframe

I don't believe there is a permit (haha)

Someone, anyone, bring a bullhorn...

Print flyers!

Be Active, if just one (me) or if there are several.
Do we need many people there? no.. but it would be nice.

Send all your friends invites. The WTO owns every one of our asses, and we need to do our part to STOMP OUT THE WORLD TERROR ORGANIZATION.


Inform everyone.
We are going to show PDX that at least some of us care about how the WTO governs our lives.
