TO COUNCIL: Allow testimony, be on the right side of history, reject the contract
We urge you to reconsider the heavy-handed, undemocratic position you have taken to hold a City Council meeting without the public present. You should allow testimony on the Amendments to the Portland Police Association contract. The Amendments were introduced after a 2.5 hour recess on September 28 when a number of groups / individuals had already testified, including ours. When Council left the chambers on October 5 to avoid listening to what probably would have amounted to 1 hour of testimony, those of us awaiting to speak spent over 2 hours waiting for you to reconvene. Meanwhile, the allegedly desperately thin ranks of the Police Bureau were largely inside City Hall arresting and intimidating those who remained inside. We were also treated to a fleet of Department of Homeland Security vehicles parked in the street and several federal officers inside the hall. These measures and others listed below are indicators that Mayor Hales is willing to use any heavy handed tactic he can to push through the inadequate PPA contract. Portland Copwatch urges you not to be on the wrong side of history. You must delay this vote and let the next Mayor negotiate what his police will do.

Hate Crime In Gresham,OR
Many people have been gleefully egging on a race war this year, especially in wake of recent events. Clearly, some of these so-called "race warriors" can't wait, though.

Larnell Malik Bruce had recently moved in with family in Gresham,OR. Bruce was at a 7-Eleven store on 188th and E. Burnside close to midnight on Wednesday August 10th 2016. He was reportedly charging his phone and talking with a friend. It was at this moment that Bruce was attacked by two white supremacist thugs without provocation. The two pieces of white trash were later identified as 38 year old Russell Courtier and his girlfriend/whore 35 year old Colleen Hunt. Bruce was standing outside the convenience store when the two white thugs drove up in a 1991 Jeep Wrangler. According to witnesses, within seconds a fist fight had broken out between the two men, with Hunt egging her boyfriend on. At one point, [...]

Video: Lac-Mégantic commemoration in Portland Oregon - Train Wreck Kills 47
An event was held around noon time in Pioneer Square, Portland Oregon on July 6th.
This was the third year that Portland has honored those that have lost their lives at the tragic oil train accident in 2013 in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec. This event was in memory of those 47 people and also served as a reminder to what danger lies in having oil trains in our communities.

 https://youtu.be/C6TLRq4IxvM (Video 46:25 minutes)

"Tragedy struck in the wee hours of July 6, 2013, when a train transporting crude oil derailed and exploded, causing 47 deaths and the destruction of much of Lac-Megantic's downtown core."

U.S. flags burned in downtown Portland during Fourth of July firework display
Here are a few pics of last night's Waterfront fight for the flag. Several flags were captured before a flag was eventually burned. One of the people trying to stop the flag burning apparently got clubbed with a flashlight, resulting in a bloody mess on his face. Multiple people were pepper-sprayed by the flag burners. I was hit by the pepper-spray but not directly (thank goodness! Although my eyes were burning bad for awhile).

Report from premier screening of Paying the Price for Peace
Report from premier screening at Clinton Street Theater July 3rd, 2016: Paying the Price for Peace, overview of film and event.

Tonight a documentary biopic of Anti-war activist and veteran, and Portlander, Bill Wilson filled the Clinton Street Theater in SE Portland. This new film covers the context and history of direct action that lead up to Bill Wilson's brutal and meaningful assault by train that amputated his legs while protesting the movement of arms to the Contras in Nicaragua from Concord military base, in California in 1988. Well-produced and thoughtful, with lots of archival footage and information, at times harrowing, the film covers many moments and situations along Wilson's path working as veteran against War, including testimonies from various anti-war activists, many of them veterans active in revealing the lies surrounding war and the real devastation it produces.

Highlights include a biographical overview of Wilson's war experience, his return home as a veteran against the war, his campaign in DC fasting with other vets to remove funding to Contras, several vets of all eras sharing their stories of becoming peace activists, a tour of solidarity in Nicaragua at the height of the conflict, interview footage with Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega about Wilson's work, his assault, footage of the amazing call to action the assault against him produced and more.

The film was followed by an at-first reluctant Q and A with Wilson, the director Bo Boudart and associate producer Frank Dorrel.

This event was part of a few days of anti war activities sponsored by Veterans for Peace.

The original peace ship, the Golden Rule, that set sail in 1958 to stop nuclear testing in the atmosphere, inspired many of the subsequent peace makers and peace ships that followed. The reborn Golden Rule is voyaging once more, to show that nuclear abolition is possible, and that bravery and tenacity can overcome militarism.  http://www.vfpgoldenruleproject.org:
