Standing Rock Fundraiser Community Event: #nodapl
Friday November 11th 2016 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Social Justice Action Center
400 SE 12th Avenue Portland, Oregon 97214

Join us next Friday for a community fundraiser to help local folks get out and support Standing Rock! Several people who live in the Portland area will be taking a caravan the next day (Nov. 12th) to head out there. We will have speakers, political education, some film clips and potluck! The way the state is responding is disgusting and unacceptable! But it's typical for imperialist/colonial/settler counterinsurgency tactics! We need to show that we can fight and that we can build a movement! This is a fundraiser so please bring what you can to support the folks that are heading out! This will be an open potluck so everyone is encouraged to share something.

Organized & co-sponsored by Portland Anarchist Black Cross, Portland Prisoner Support, Oregon Jericho, The Jericho Movement, Northwest Alliance for Alternative Media and Education

#NoDAPL Solidarity

Portland is full of key players in the struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline. We are hosting a training for groups (not individuals) who are interested in organizing local #NoDAPL solidarity actions. Register for the training at  https://actionnetwork.org/events/nodapl-solidarity-actions-group-training


Please come in a group. A group does not need to be any kind of formal organization. It can be you and your friends or you and your family or your coworkers or fellow students or church group or chess club or step squad or really any assemblage of people with whom you have affinity. It also CAN be you and people from your formal organization if you happen to belong to one. We ask that groups be made up of at least 3 people, and encourage much larger groups to attend as well.

We also ask that, regardless of the size of your group, *at least* 3 people from your group attend the training. There will be a lot of different information given and you might have to split up at points to absorb all of it.

We will be checking at the door that you have registered and are showing up with your group. Please do not register if you do not plan to attend with other members of your group.


We will introduce basic and common non-violent direct action strategies and tactics. We'll review some of the agencies and players in the Dakota Access Pipeline project and discuss how we can target them locally. We will also review pertinent legal information to engaging in direct action and address how you and your group can keep each other safe while challenging the powers that back DAPL. Finally, we'll touch on local struggles against fossil fuel infrastructure here that is currently transporting Bakken Crude Oil (the same oil the DAPL is being built to accommodate) in the Pacific Northwest.

**The training IS NOT a space to come try to find a ride to North Dakota or ask if anyone can take your donations out there. We are trying to engage folks who explicitly know they cannot go to Standing Rock anytime soon and want to take action here and now.**

November 9 - November 12
Nov 9 at 1:00 PM to Nov 12 at 4:00 PM PST

Wells Fargo Center (Portland, Oregon)
1300 SW 5th Ave, Portland, Oregon 97201


Stand with Standing Rock Sioux Tribe against the Black Snake! November 9th is Smudge Down the Banks! Huge #NoDAPL National Week of Action <3 with over 40 actions (see list below) calling on all banks to divest funding from Dakota Access Pipeline. We invite people to join together and publicly smudge down with sage and other sacred herbs the Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citibank US, Chase Bank, U.S. Bank bank locations near you! This action symbolically represents purifying the banks from their "dirty money" invested in Big Oil and fracking. If you are a customer at one of these banks, withdraw your money and tell them why! Please message Medicine Nation to get a #SmudgeDownTheBanks action in your city; or start your own!
