This unpermitted, anarchic protest has been, by far, the most effective Portland protest to date. The local news has been riveted to the events, traffic was stopped, and the Portland police was clearly shown to be unable to rule the masses. Splinter tactics, direct action, and road blockages have been totally effective. TONIGHT, PORTLAND RULED ITSELF! THANK YOU, PROTESTERS!
Mixed 1000 congregate at Federal Building for afternoon rally, demo continues (as of 8:30 PM) with candles and lanterns. Although no sign of current demo ending, other protestors call for return to Federal Building Friday 12NOON and 4PM
Does anybody know what bridges are open so I can get down to the protests?

Here is an address to some photos that I have posted quickly
Cops cornered bike riders on Morrison bridge and threw them on the ground and beat them.
A contingent of protestors are about to liberate the fourth bridge...the broadway bridge.
Critical Mass has blocked the Diverted I-5 traffic. I-5 traffic was diverted to I-405. Critical mass blocked the diversion.
A critical mass participant was nearly run over by an aggressive motorist on Grand Ave. He escaped only at the expense of his beloved orange Peugeot, which fell victim to three-foot tires and an enlarged ego.
Two large groups of liberators on the I-84 about 1/4 mile from each other.
I-84 has been liberated! I-84 and southbound I-5 are both taken. Protestors on side of freeway. They are trying to take the lanes. They are sitting down.

Christian fascists to the fore. And Texan Methodist gang rapists of children to boot ...
IS there a plan to regroup after the 5PM march?
No more war for oil
the fascists in power aren't listening to the people of the world and seem set on attacking Iraq any day now. here's a summary of the announced events in portland for that day so far.
the positive side of budget cuts!
There will be a meeting to discuss various tactics at rallies. This will be an open meeting, But we will do our best to kept it safe. We feel it is necessary to have a space for folks to talk out they're differences face to face. The objective will be to reach some form of common ground and strenthen the movement
If you can get through it all... interesting sum of information on things related to war, iraq and the US.
It looks Bush might be getting his war show on the road any day now. What's the plan?
Since this war is all about money and power, protesters must speak themselves in the language of money and power. So one way I thought might be possible to do this, is on the day bombing starts, to withdraw a substantial amount of money from a bank account.
You want to do some DIRECT ACTION? Start with the parking strip right in front of your house. It is City Property- reclaim it. There is enough space there to take care of a significant part of your grocery bill.
It is a truly revolutionary act to use the output of the system to build infrustructure that lowers your dependence on the system.
