CALLING ALL RADICALS--

Calling all Anarchists, Radicals, anti-statists, anti-capitalists, queers, workers, reds...
....to attend the November 2nd march in solidarity with Oakland and in retaliation against police violence nationwide.

This is a call out to all anarchists and radicals to join the anti-authoritarian blocs during the solidarity march with Oakland on November 2nd. It will begin at Terry Shrunk park, the meeting area for occupy Portland, with a rally at 4:30 and the march starting at 5:30. This march is an act of solidarity with the Oakland general strike. It is in solidarity with Scott Olsen, a member of occupy Oakland who suffered a skull fracture after being shot in the head by a police projectile during a demonstration on Oct.25th, and with people everywhere who are victims of systematic police repression and violence.

This march and the actions taking place around it are demonstrations of RESISTANCE TO POLICE BRUTALITY AND RESPONSE TO PERPETUATED OPPRESSION/INJUSTICES not only in Portland, not only at the occupation, but the violence that people endure at the hands of the police/authoritarians everyday.

MAY THIS BE A CALL OUT FOR A DIVERSITY OF TACTICS AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF SUPPORT AND STRENGTH IN VARYING THOUGHTS AND IDEAS.


******DO NOT SUPPORT THE OPPRESSORS AND THEIR ABILITY TO HARM**********


A diversity of tactics will be utilized by those taking part in these actions and an understanding of support and solidarity is necessary for all people involved, no matter what role one utilizes.

SUPPORT YOUR COMRADES, NOT THE STATE.
