Civil Resist Portland had a Pledge of Nonviolence to which individuals signed for the Ron Wyden action on March 20 for that act of resistance and its resulting events. We agreed:
To not bring weapons, illegal drugs or alcohol.
To bring positive regard for the humanity of all.
To not engage in physical violence.
To not engage in verbal violence (no threats of bodily harm, no screaming or swearing or attacks on anyone's character or identity).
To make every attempt to communicate nonviolently (with calm, with reason, with openness to each human being) or be silent.
To not run.
To stand or sit, or, if need be, to quietly and calmly walk away.
To not engage in property destruction.
To remain dignified and allow no one to take that from them.
To act with the agreed-upon tone and spirit of the act.
People signed the pledge to participate, and they took non violence training.
If interested and in agreement with nonviolence, we invite you to attend our next meeting, Sunday, April 2, 2 pm. For location, contact email@example.com
