Occupy Portland and Beyond

Occupy Portland10/18/11 – Great Article by Chris Hedges – A Movement Too Big To Fail https://www.truthdig.com/report/item/a_movement_too_big_to_fail_20111017/

There’s something going on around here“, quotes Paul Krugman of the NYT. There’s some great writing about this movement and some great activism going on right now.  I thought I’d share what I’m finding.  In no particular order:

9/23 – Video of Occupy WallStreet – well done photographically…

A list/map of all Occupy Groups in the world.  Livestream of the Occupy PDX happenings.

Blog post by Chris Hedges on the People’s Republic of Portland blog – a great read as is everything he writes, IMHO.

YES Magazine author Sarah Van Gelder’s Article: Where the 99% Get Their Power: “The protests are giving the unemployed, the uninsured, the evicted, indebted students, homeless veterans, and would-be retirees a place to break out of their isolation. OccupyWallStreet shows that millions share their hardships and are standing up. Transforming shame, self-doubt, and isolation into solidarity unleashes enormous power.”

A list of needs of the Occupy Portland folks.  I’m sure this list is still pretty current.  Food, Shelter, Clothing are generally always needed.

Popular saying: Dear 1%, We fell asleep for a while. We just woke up. Sincerely, the 99%

Great photos from NYC protests

This Fall’s Elections are important, please don’t sit them out

Election 2010We have elections coming up in November. Please make sure you are registered to vote. And, let’s talk about who’s running, and who deserves our vote. This would not be a great time for the US to have the Republicans running anything in Washington, DC. During the Bush years they sent us backwards and the damage they did was great. Let’s work to make sure that the Democrats retain power in Washington, DC. Help me with this, will you?
