Hello Occupy friends and others in the community:

The Citizen Review Committee's Crowd Control Work Group is holding a
special meeting next Wednesday, August 8 at noon to hear testimony from
people who have experienced police violence or other misconduct at protest
actions. Unfortunately they scheduled it at 12 noon when many people may
be at work; they meet at the office of Troy & Rosenberg, P.C.
2105 NE Cesar Chavez Boulevard, Suite 270, NW corner of Tillamook and
CC Blvd (39th). It will go till 1:00 PM.

If you or someone you know would be willing to talk about your experiences
to this all-volunteer group, which is attached to but able to make policy
recommendations independent of the "Independent" Police Review Division,
can you let us know? And also, let us know if it's ok to share your name
and/or contact information with the Work Group chair, Rodney Paris.

Feel free to circulate this email widely-- the Crowd Control Work Group
has only met three times but they've heard from us about batons, horses,
bicycles, "kettling," pepper spray, lack of identification, and other
various issues, but they hear from us all the time. They want to hear more
first hand experiences from a wider variety of folks.
