Occupy Portland "Office" is at 1131 SOUTHEAST OAK STREET at St. Francis Dining Hall. It is run by a small group of white old men that call themselves Friends of Occupy Portland or FOOP, a business that was incorporated last year. There is no women, color people, or LGBTQ on FOOP Board of Directors, and this board of Directors is not elected by Occupy Portland's General Assembly. They just appointed themselves to this Board.
Since last month or so there has been a holy war against unhoused activists who organize and converge at this "Office". We the unhoused Occupiers work hard day and night on the streets, risk arrests, stand in rain and wind in front of City Hall, but we are treated like shit by FOOP "Office" Info Team. We deserve better treatment, less hostility, and more use out of the "Office" because we are the ones who are putting in more hours on Occupy vigil than anyone who is FOOP.
Occupy Portland is now officially UNSAFE and TRANSPHOBIC place. Our Trans Comrades have been BANNED from not only FOOP "Office" but also all ST FRANCIS DINING HALL because of hateful prejudice against Trans. Comrade Ahuviya Harel was assaulted by Occupy Portland after they misgendered her on purpose during a meeting.
Occupy Portland has also declared "Homeless Sweep" for tomorrow in order to throw away Unhoused Comrades's properties and to make the space even more unsafe for unhoused folks. This is CLASSIST and OPPRESSIVE BEHAVIOR that passes for Occupy today. General Assembly and Spokes Council are powerless in getting rid of elitist FOOP and reclaiming democratic governance of OUR community space.
Nowadays the only job they appear to have at the "Office" is to exclude Unhoused Occupier comrades, one by one, after finding faults and having a secret hush-hush meeting behind the door deciding who to exclude next.
