PREPARE FOR MARCH 29th: AFFINITY GROUPS AND THE BLACK BLOC

In response to the brutal murder of a PDX community member we encourage all people who desire to protect and avenge their communities to form affinity groups.
These affinity groups will act as small autonomous groups taking actions they feel are appropriate.

Affinity groups allow for more efficient communication between folks involved in the attack and defense of themselves, their comrades and all involved with the march or action. Creating spokes councils to coordinate with other affinity groups (who you know and trust) also encourage more successful actions.
Forming affinity groups also encourages the use of a diversity of tactics. Each group can safely and securely decide what are appropriate actions for them to participate in. These groups do not take actions on behalf of anyone but themselves therefore are free to do what they feel is most effective.

Independent Police Review- Wednesday, March 31 to City Hall (1221 SW 4th Av)

Friends

Please come out next Wednesday, March 31 to City Hall (1221 SW 4th Av) for
the continuation on the hearing regarding strengthening the "Independent"
Police Review Division (IPR). There will be public testimony allowed--it's

speak again.

We're still trying to make sense of the fact that a Portland Police
Officer shot and killed a homeless man carrying what's been described as a
crafts knife inbetween the historic March 18 first hearing about
strengthening the IPR (the professional office in the Auditor's portfolio
that includes the city's "police review board," the Citizen Review
Committee) and the continuation of that hearing, which is coming up next
week.
