Will Portland ACT to stop the war?

From the open publishing newswire: San Francisco has a plan to shut down the city if bombs start dropping in Iraq. They plan to inflict real economic and political costs by blocking 12 key intersections in the city thru mass nonviolent direct action. We have seen how easy it is for Bush to ignore protest marches. How easy would it be to ignore the financial machine disabled on entire West coast? We in Portland need to look at San Fran's plan and join them!
