The following was copied from the Face Book page --> Defend Portland Against Austerity Cuts at the Portland Budget Hearings:
Join us in our campaign to stop yet another round of austerity budget cuts in Portland, as we grow our presence at the community budget hearings and project our message that THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES to austerity.
Please consider testifying, or passing out fliers, or holding signs or simply being a presence to support those who are speaking out against the city plan to lay off public employees and cut services provided by these employees to the public.
On the chopping block are several important housing programs, community centers, jobs, funding for parks, after school programs, youth employment services, and many others.
