With the news reports saying that Bush will no longer wait for the UN to aprove his attack on Iraq and that the deadline has been moved up to this afternoon everything has suddenly gone into crisis mode.We are preparing for a giant and intense protest just days after the police attacked hundreds of us on the Morrison bridge and else where with cars, pepper spray and brutality.
The day of bombing appears to be some time today or tomorrow.This is a call to the citizens of Portland to prepare for and help organize the protest which is likely tomorrow.
In this time of crisis here are some thing that you can do.
1.Call all over your friends/family and school or work mates.Tell these people to similarly spread the word so that the ever expanding phone trees that were started this morning can reach the whole city before the bombs start dropping and we are forced to respond.
2.Help us flyer/sticker/wheatpaste the whole city today and tonight.Flyers and stickers can be printed off of indymedia and then copied onto sticker paper or regular paper at your nearest copy shop.
3.Come to the planning meeting/sign making party tonight at 6PM 1914 E Burnside
Bring ideas,affinity groups,friends and sign/banner making materials.
4.On the day of bombing (or the day after if it starts to late) dont go to school or work,instead help us do the last minute out reach and prepare for the protest through getting whatever clothes or material you will need.Go to whichever protest you wish but be sure to be at Terry Shrunk plaza before 5PM so that you can participate in the complete shut down of Portland!
The most important thing is to be there and help us make it a sucess by coming to the meeting and calling your friends.
