Where is Redwing? 02.Nov.2004 11:29


Where is Redwing?

Redwing... 02.Nov.2004 11:52

PDX collectivist

...is a worker-owned and run cafe/coffee roaster on SE 6th & Market. That's two blocks south of Hawthorne, near the big County building. If you've ever had a coffee at the Red & Black, you've tasted Redwing Coffee. They've got delicious pastries and food (much of it vegan), including tempeh made from scratch. If you don't like corporate capitalism, and want to help support new ways of doing business (with No Bosses!), Redwing is one of a dozen or so worker-owned/run businesses in town. It makes sense that the Pacific Green Party would choose one of these businesses for their event.

non-voter party? 02.Nov.2004 11:56


Anybody know any parties for anarchists and non-voters??



disenfranchised? disillusioned? disgusted? DANCE PARTY!

28th & SE stark (sorry, 21+)

Non Voter Party 02.Nov.2004 13:01

great idea!!!!!

how about all us non voters get together and celebrate!

we can declare victory that discrimination and bigotry has been added to our state constitution because measure 36 was passed!!

we can celebrate another victory for big timber because the tillamook 50/50 was defeated!!! anarchists don't care about trees anyway.

can't wait to clink glasses and toast to our failing education system after the multnomah tax is repealed.

and SAIF... who needed it anyway? anarchists sure don't

yes, not voting is a great idea. i'd love to celebrate with you, BUT I VOTED ON ALL OF THESE BALLOT MEASURES. Whoops, silly me.

Don't worry 02.Nov.2004 16:25



Don't worry, the anarchists did too . . . they watch TV like everyone else, got sucked into the hype, like everyone else, got scared of Bush, like everyone else.

Party Tomorrow! 02.Nov.2004 16:54

Lucy Parsons

Voters and non-voters alike (with anarchists of both ilks) are invited to the South Park Blocks at 3pm and Pioneer Square at 5pm! Have fun and let the president-to-be know that we hate his war-mongering talk -- whether his name is "George" or "John."
