Saturday Protest to save Social Security and Medicare

A corporate backed group called "America Speaks" is hosting a "Town Hall" in PDX as part of a well funded national campaign to discuss fixing the federal deficits. Such events have been used to propose cutting Social Security and Medicare. The purpose of the picket before the Town Hall is to make sure other voices are heard. Don't cut Main Streets modest programs. Make Wall Street pay!
