Maybe this warrants Portland folks coming to Seattle Monday and Seattle folks getting to Portland tuesday. Us Olyfolk may want to do both...

I will be at the Mexican Consulate on both Monday (at 11am) and tuesday. I will be coming from work, and so will not have any signs or anything. But I will have my voice. If anyone else cares to be there with me on Monday, I'll see you there. I'd love the company.

So what time what day? 29.Oct.2006 23:33

All day all the time :-) 30.Oct.2006 18:43


Todays demos were at 11am and 6pm, with some people dropping by all day. Tomorrow, the action is planned for 4pm. That should be a bigger and better-organized demo, as planning is going on as we speak at Liberty Hall. Marcos is calling for resistance and solidarity on November 1, and also on November 20th.

I am I crazy? 31.Oct.2006 11:41


I found 1234 SW Morrison to be an overpass. Is it on 12th?
