Because of the 5-0 vote on Portland re-joining the JTTF, Roberto and I will go back to City Hall each Wednesday before and during the scheduled council meetings. We will stand out front for a time with protest signs and hand out leaflets telling all those who pass by why we want all three candidates for office in 2012 to be replaced. This action by the City Council of Portland, Oregon is just outrageous and should be fought with all our might. You may have protested the day of the vote, but will you help us keep the heat on these people who trust the FBI and think our police will become snitches. That's what this resolution calls for, that the local police who are assigned to the JTTF will run to their chief and rat out the FBI--"Not Going to Happen."
The ACLU should be ashamed of their part in this process, they fought to stay away from the FBI but, like most cocktail liberals gave in at the last moment.
This council has harassed more houseless people than any other council, they are only paying attention to the business community and completely ignoring the very people who are trying to create some sense of justice here in Portland. The question for you my friends, will you join us in telling the lame three who are up for re-election they will not get our votes: Mayor Adams, Commissioners Fritz and Leonard.
We will be there each and every Wednesday from now until the election in 2012 for an hour or so starting at 0900--(9:00 AM) Bring your own sign and once again the only rule is be proud of what you say on your sign. "Into the streets I say!"
