This is important stuff, we are now at the beginning of the end of our privacy, spy drones over our city should make you nervous. We know that our police love to spy on us when we demonstrate, when we use our constitutional rights, drones makes that much easier for the authorities to spy on us. Come join the Progressive Party and Individuals For Justice in demanding the council say:"We will not allow drones over our city."
Can't go? Call City Hall starting at 0900 and leave a message that you do not want the city to allow drones over Portland. Here are the numbers:

Protest against Surveillance Drones in Portland Airspace
Wednesday August 22, 8:30AM
Portland City Hall
On Wednesday, August 22, at 8:30 am the Oregon Progressive Party will lead a demonstration outside of Portland City Hall to announce a draft City Resolution banning the use of surveillance drones in Portland airspace and demanding the the Portland City Council adopt such a resolution to protect the Constitutional rights of its citizens.
Since the FAA began issuing certificates earlier this year for public and private entities to fly unmanned drones in U.S. airspace, hundreds of cities and towns have seen local police and sheriff departments request the use of drones.
Not only are drones being used to bomb and murder civilians in our unending and illegal wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, they are being actively pursued by local governments and federal entities to be used for police purposes.
Just as with the Old Town Spy Cams, we are asking the Portland City Council to ban the use of surveillance drones in Portland airspace to prevent Portland from becoming a Surveillance State and protecting our 1st and 4th Amendments rights.
Come to City Hall at 8:30am on Wednesday August 22 to let your voice be heard.
Bring flying toys! We plan to have our own airborne fleet of Fun Drones.
NO DRONES IN PORTLAND!
Help us make Portland the first major American city to ban drones. Similar efforts are underway in other cities, including Buffalo and Baltimore.
If your group or organization would like to participate in this demo or join our effort, please send an email to email@example.com
