Police presence was especially heavy in the close-in East side of Portland during the mornuing rush-hour so one drop site was scrapped.
The first banner, dropped from the Burnside Bridge reminded workers travelling on I-5 south and the I-84 exit of the "General Strike Against Bush, Not One Damn Dime." It was well recieved, though it had been removed by 10am.
Two "Cascadia Now" banners urging the immediate separation of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia from the federal governments in DC and Ottawa, and formation of the nation of Cascadia were also dropped. The first above I-405 near PSU, and the second on the Alberta St. overpass in North Portland.
The ACL does not condone freeways or fossil fuels, but recognizes the fact that many citizens travel them, and therefore they are a good venue for spreading a message.
Cascadia Now, United and Free. End federal dominance in the Pacific Raincoast.
