Free And Independent Cascadia Planning Meeting

Come One Come All
Cuz We're Having A Ball
We're Just Taking Back
For a long time people have talked about Cascadia rising up and seceeding from the union. Some say we should ask Canada to take us in, other aspire to a life free from governance by someone outside the community. It's time to get together and talk about it in tangible terms (time-frame etc.)

Around 51% of the country that was allowed to vote said that Bush represented them.
Around 98% of the country said that a war-mongering tyrant represented them.

Cascadia is different. Cascadia has never supported this bullshit. Bush I called Portland Little Beirut. It's time we take back the land that is rightfully ours. I've got some ideas on how it could happen, but I'm sure you do too and that a compromise can be reached. After all, most of you on this board have stood with me in the streets while riot cops sprayed us down. A minor detail like the methodology of our achievment of freedom shouldn't stop it from happening. Freedom is the only thing really important right now.

Not to worry, this won't be some bullshit PPRC meeting. We will have no leader, just probobally a facilitator and someone to take stack.

The proposed time, day and place is Saturday, November 13th at 5:30PM. We will meet at Pioneer Courhouse Square, but don't worry, we have nearby locations, but we want to determine which one to use based on the amount of people who show up. Spread the word!

PS: I can't really answer questions about how cascadia will be, that's more the purpose of this meeting. I could say how I envision cascadia to be, but not what some official rule would be.
