Saturday, October 29th
MARCH TO THE CONVENTION CENTER TO PROTEST BANK OF AMERICA'S CYNICAL PLOY TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THEY WANT TO HELP THEM "RETAIN" THEIR HOMES.
MARCH BACK ACROSS THE BROADWAY BRIDGE TO OCCUPY PORTLAND'S NEW SITE IN THE PEARL DISTRICT. ENJOY A CAMP MEETING, AND THEN DINNER BIKED OVER FROM THE OCCUPY KITCHEN.
Gather with us at the waterfront park, Naito and Salmon (by the fountain), at 12:30 pm. We march at 1:00 pm to the Oregon Convention Center and hand out flyers to homeowners going in to give all their financial data to B of A "home retention specialists." In reality, all they're doing is identifying themselves as probable foreclosure targets, and participating in a cheap publicity stunt.
At 3:30, we will march back across the Broadway Bridge to Occupy Portland's new site in the Pearl District. If you plan to help sit-in and break curfew hours bring your sleeping bags, tarps, and mats with you on the march. NO TENTS!
Jamison Square: NW 11th and Johnson
Camp Meeting starts at 4:00 PM, with a Potluck at 7:00 PM, and a Cuddle Party at 10:00 PM. We plan on staying the entire night.
Occupy Portland is in Solidarity with Oakland, Atlanta, and all other cities which have experienced a hostile police take-over. We will gather for a camp meeting to discuss the prospects of our future political actions, which may include the expansion into new territory.
We will be demonstrating in Pearl District to bring awareness to the inequality of wealth within our very city. We are not proposing redistribution of wealth- we raise our concerns to the truth that basic needs for safety are only guaranteed to those with the economic privilege.
Jamison Square is privately owned a public park*. It is emphasized that you REMAIN ON YOUR BEST BEHAVIOR. Drugs and Drama will not be welcome.
Please bring: Food, tarps, sleeping bags, mats, hand warmers, water coolers, and buckets. NO TENTS!
Celebrate with the 99%.
