ALEC Busters Bring Out The "SWAT" Team On Verizon With Street Theatre Downtown

Peace House Friends activists cleaned up after the likes of ALEC at the downtown Verizon.

StreetNews Report:

ALEC Busters from Peace House Friends joined forces with Portland Jobs With Justice to rally in full HAZMAT dress-up in front of the verizon wireless store downtown. They were there protesting verizons cuts to workers wages, health benefits, and the fact that verizon will not accept a new fair Union contract for its employees. Portland police show up to respond to a call from verizon staff and realize that the street theater action is completely legal and that citizens were just exercising their rights. Ha!
