Pitch a Tent highlights the diverse lived experience of unhoused and formerly unhoused people through music, testimony, interactive art and education. It calls attention to the cognitive dissonance present in city decisions that once a year allow for recreational camping along the 4.2 mile Grand Floral Parade route, while criminalizing the everyday efforts to survive of those who have no other choice but to live outside.

Portland Police Directives: DIRECTIVE 650.00 SEARCH, SEIZURES AND INVENTORIES

From the open publishing newswire: DIRECTIVE 650.00 SEARCH, SEIZURES AND INVENTORIES
We last commented on this Directive in October, 2014. It appears that
none of our comments led to changes in the policy, and moreover no
changes were made at all to the policy.

As such, we will simply repeat our previous comments here albeit with some fine-tuning and updates:

--One term that jumps out in the directive is the exception to searches needing warrants called "stop and frisk" (Section 2.1). While the term "frisk" is defined ("a cursory pat-down type physical search of a person), the action of a police "stop and frisk" is not.

Video: Cop Watching on 10th street 3.29.18 in Portland

videostillcopwatching From the open publishing newswire: On 3.29.18 I observed a half dozen Portland Police cars and a Homeland Security vehicle on SW 10th street by the Galleria Max stop.

There were two men who were handcuffed. One in a stairwell corner and one already inside a police SUV. They were both taken from the scene by ambulance, there also was one handcuffed lady, who was released. I over heard (while filming) words like heroin, having warrants, a shooting under the bridge. I also noticed three Target employees-security talking with the police. The one Homeland Security officer was standing and watching the handcuffed lady. He was not being aggressive or engaging, he casually slipped away around 4 minutes into the video. I captured a police officer un-cuffing the lady and handing the handcuffs to the Homeland Security Officer at 3:58 in the video, just before he takes off.

Reclaim and Celebrate Armistice Day - NOVEMBER 11th 2017 in Portland

From the open publishing newswire: Reclaim and Celebrate Armistice Day
(aka Veterans Day) as a Day of Peace with Veterans For Peace Chapter 72 at Pioneer Courthouse Square @ 701 SW 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97205

Veterans For Peace has taken the lead in lifting up the original intention of November 11th—as a day for peace. As veterans, we know that a day that celebrates peace, not war, is the best way to honor the sacrifices of veterans. We want generations after us to never know the destruction war has wrought on people and the earth.

Modern Day Slavery

From the open publishing newswire: 1 dollar is slavery no matter how you slice it!

Modern Day Slaves!!! 10/7/2017

There seems to be a concept in corrections that we can use our inmate population as slaves. Inmates are excluded from coverage under Oregon's minimum wage laws and that creates an opportunity for evil people to pay them 1 dollar a day for 8 hrs work. It gets worse, the State of Washington is suing a corporation who runs 40 immigration detention centers, at least one being in their state because the corporation is doing the same thing, paying their charges 1 dollar per day. I testified, not just once, but a number of times at the Multnomah County Board Meetings against this and told Sheriff Mike Reese that he was a "Fascist Punk" for sending crews out to clean up homeless/houseless camps and paying them 1 dollar a day. He may be on legal ground, that is up to the courts, but not on moral grounds and I need help fighting this injustice. The local news media are too stupid or just can't take this issue on for some reason. Can I get a yell from you that says "No Slave Labor in Multnomah County?" Can anyone help us fight this by taking direct action against this abomination?
