At Northwest Park and Jefferson, people listened to music and waited for a funeral procession to march up from downtown. When this procession arrived, with painted white faces and a somber tones, a moment of silence was announced by the ringing of a Buddhist gong, whereby the people lined up and deposited previously prepared letters to the Oregonian addressing the lack of coverage of what should be the story of the century, rampant voter fraud and voter disenfranchisement which took place in the recent 2004 national election. |
After several people spoke, a few of the organizers as well as some of those who were there in support, the gathering marched down to the Oregonian offices. Here amongst chants voicing their disapproval and outrage at Corporate Media cowardice, the letters were counted before being turned over to the Oregonian. The total was 96 letters.
The march, one of many more to come was organized by Actions Speak PortlandClean Vote.
