"We are the Portland Peace Encampment. A diverse group of individuals building Community to demonstrate our rights as peoples to speak and gather together. We are the voices and the faces supporting non-violent resolutions in solidarity with world community. We will maintain a 24 hour presence until American bombs stop dropping."
The members of PPE would like to extent their deep heartfelt thanks to everyone that has supported them emotionally or with supplies, honked horns, big smiles, and warm bodies. They want everyone to know that their spirits are very high because of all of the incredible support they have received.
Some special requests:
- Waterproof things (especially umbrellas), warm food, warm drinks, warm soup.
- Documentation: a loaned or donated videocamera would be an amazing gift. Or bring your own video or still camera and document yourself.
- Contact Vera Katz and other city council members and thank them kindly for allowing the Portland Peace Encampment to continue. Encourage them to go visit the campers.
- Anyone with contacts at downtown churches that may be willing to allow respite sleeping or a place to briefly warm up and catch some z's is very desired.
Thank you to everyone! This is an amazing non-violent action! Even the feds are catching on.
