Little Beirut is a publication put out by Portland Anti-Capitalist Action. ACA seeks to legitimize the politics of anti-capitalism within the greater community. We view capitalism as a system dependently linked to all forms of oppression, therefore we commit to confronting capitalism head-on through organization and resistance, as well as promoting mutual aid alternatives to capitalist culture. We work in solidarity and support of communities struggling to defend themselves against capitalist advances (war, globalization, gentrification, police brutality, eviction, environmental racism, etc... ) worldwide. We engage in campaigns and efforts to undermine the influence of capitalism on our lives. And we seek to build a sustainable anti-authoritarian movement through education and building alliances locally, nationally and globally.

The name Little Beirut was the name given to Portland by the first Bush due to the aggressive demos against his regime during the gulf war particularly when he dared to show his face in our city. Bush's intent was to illustrate the violence that surrounded his appearance here, associating it with the violence in Lebanon throughout the 80's, which include militant resistance to U.S. imperialism and militarism in the Middle East. We are taking this name to illustrate the resistance to the U.S., to Bush in particular, the U.S. Patriot Act, Militarism, and U.S Imperialism worldwide. Let passions burn should he show his face here again, or wherever he and his empire roams. -Portland Anti Capitalist Action
