seattle phone number? 10.Feb.2006 04:55

i keep noticing that the "portland" world can't wait people have a seattle phone number.

i have heard it said that one of the reasons world can't wait is not getting a lot of support from the longer term portland area organizations is that the national level world can't wait people don't even care enough to hook up their portland contingent with a local (503) or (971) area code.

it makes little difference to me. i am more concerned about ideas such as leading neighborhood marches to destinations like neighborhood pubs for "community building". many (if not most) of the people that participated in the january 31 action were not even old enough to enter a pub.

however, if people are concerned about the (206) area code phone number, why not invest a few bucks and get some local digits?

i have also heard that most of the portland organizations are putting their efforts into sunday, march 19, 2006 gathering and rally at the waterfront and do not feel it is worth getting sidetracked with world can't wait...

any thoughts???

Partner up with the other organizations. J31 was frankly, a mess. Very little leadership, just...hey...lets get on the max then stand around in the park and wait for someone who might not be there. I hate to be one of the people who don't help to organize then bitch about the organization, I really do, but I think WCW will make a better name for itself if it partners, at least for m19/2m20, if it gets together with the other groups. If we are to get anywhere in our fight against the war we have to act as one and show that even though different people in different groups, although they do not share all their belifes, can put that aside to take a stand on a common issue..
