December 3rd - New Occupation

New Occupation Soon!
For the Occupy Portland Website:

This proposal was passed by the Occupy Portland General Assembly Nov. 28, 2011

On Saturday, December 3rd join Occupy Portland as we march from the Salmon Springs Fountain to occupy another park!

Why? Because the grievances and injustices within our society have not been redressed. Because we have the right to peacefully assemble on public property to voice those grievances, and we're not done! Because we stand in solidarity with the Occupy Movement across this entire country that has been pursued, persecuted and brutalized for exercising the very rights our country is supposed to defend! Because it's about damn time!

Bring your tents, your sleeping bags, and prepare yourself for a night of non-violent protest while we celebrate the reoccupation of another park with live music and a showing of the film Meltdown: The Secret History of the Global Financial Collapse. Bring your own musical instruments, hula hoops, food for the potluck and positive attitudes! We will be having a Reoccupation Open Forum starting at 2PM at Salmon Springs Fountain at the south end of Waterfront Park. THEN WE MARCH, starting at 3PM, to occupy another park! We have our committees, our working groups, and our experience from the previous occupation. We have a plan, we have sustainability, and we have security culture.

We just need you!
