I know there are some of you in Portland. Is there any organization of anti-imperialists in Portland? Would any of you be interested in creating one if there isn't? Perhaps some of you think something you work on is worthwhile. Could you post it, so I, and hopefully others, can check it out?
Personally, I'm involved with an online activist community. There is I believe one other person from Portland on it. There's also a lot of people from Seattle. Thus, I hear a lot about Seattle's local politics, and their anti-imperialist efforts seem ahead of Portlands. Seattle has a working anti-imperialist commitee and I think it would be good for Portland also. That is the point of this call (if your interested in checking out the community, goto http://mediaweapon.com and click on the POF-200 e-mail list. I think it's a worthwhile endeavor).
The purpose for this group would be to bring together different sorts of activists who understand the anti-imperialist view (or want to learn about it), and understand the need to remove imperialism from the world. Your personal philosophy doesn't matter to me, whether your an anarchist or a marxist or a whateverist, as long as you see the need to make radical social change. I think such a group would go a long ways to organizing demonstrations and making changes in our local communities, our city, our state and our country. I also think debating and criticism will create the best path forward.
Would any of you be interested in such a group/community? Post your thoughts and comments. Or you can e-mail me if you like, saying your interested. If there's interested people, we can figure out ways of meeting, organizing, and agenda.
