VIDEO: Cease Fire - Gaza Attacked - Protest in Portland 1.4.09

filmed in Portland Oregon on Sunday 1.4.09
There was a protest in Portland on Sunday around Pioneer Square
This is volume #.1 from my footage from that 2 hour event
I will post more footage (right here on this page) when it is completed


The outrage of Israel attacking Gaza has caused hundreds of Portland citizens to ...
stand out in public in the cold weather ... to denounce the killings and the attack and occupation of Gaza

There was 200 to 300 hundred passionate concerned protesters, who maintained a constant presence and loudly expressed their outrage over the killing spree in Gaza.

I seen only one police car drive slowly by (and told a protester by nordstroms to not stand in the street) and a couple security guards from the square were standing around off to the side

FLIR and Mentor Graphics enable Israeli attacks 06.Jan.2009 14:48

both have headquarters in Wilsonville, very near each other

It is easy to take the bus from Portland to the HQ's: just take the #12 out Barbur Blvd to the Barbur transit station and transfer to the Wilsonville-bound "SMART" bus (South Metro Area Transit). These buses don't run as often as the rest of the TriMet buses, but they run often enough. A couple of bucks will get you to Wilsonville and a few more will get you back. Anybody attending a Courthouse Square event can easily be in Wilsonville within an hour by bus, if you plan right. The 72nd Avenue FLIR may be worth visiting, but it appears the main HQ is in Wilsonville and if you go there you get the added bonus of visiting Mentor Graphics as well.

Here is basic supplemental info on these two businesses that were mentioned in earlier posts here on Indymedia:

"Oregon-based company, Mentor Graphics, has been doing business in Israel since 1986 selling graphic software tools and applications to the Israeli government.

Boycott Starbucks, for starters!! The CEO Schultz is a Zionist! 06.Jan.2009 16:06


There is an international movement to boycott and even picket Starbuck's in support of a Palestinian and Lebanese boycott of the coffee giant. Starbuck's CEO, Howard Schultz, is reportedly an active supporter of Israel and Zionist causes.
