Miami FLA
Towards the end of November, in Miami FLA, trade ministers from the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) will be meeting. Many protests worldwide have had Portland influence. Most recently the USDA/WTO Ministerial in Sacramento that was largely effective due to the people of Portland; and the WTO Cancun Ministerial that had much more international orchestration but was also helped along by people of Portland. The FTAA meetings in Miami must not be allowed to be successful. I would like to have a Portland flair added to those actions across the country. I know we cant have as much influence as in Sacto (as it is much further away) but having a few people down there early to help shape the demonstrations, welcoming center, IMC center, etc would be great. I think that we should definately have at least soem kind of prescence. If anyone is planning on going down there early in the month of November perhaps we should try to get more people together to help out. Lets keep the pressure on our oppressors and ter it all down.

Emergency Action Needed to Protect Free Speech in Miami!
It's important that concerned citizens immediately contact Miami city officials to voice their opposition to this draconian, unconstitutional measure.Tell them you're contacting them to express your opposition to this ordinance which strips away free speech rights - refer to it the parades and demonstrations ordinance; if they ask what you mean, tell them it's item J-O3-772 on the Sept. 25 City Commission agenda, which would add section 6.1 to Chapter 54 of the City of Miami municipal code
