Purpose

Quick Reportback
& Next Steps for the Labor Outreach Committee
1) What is the Labor Outreach Committee?

30+ individuals and many more supporters actively meeting and organizing for Occupy Portland and community labor events! We do outreach to unions and other labor-oriented groups for supplies, volunteers, and in search of solidarity struggles for Occupy!

2) What happened over the Weekend, 11/12 & 11/13?

The mainstream media reports that the camp has been cleared. True. But only after 38 days of camping and 48 hours of resistance, dozens of arrested, many more actions planned, and a clear sense of community and solidarity among thousands of Portlanders and millions around the world who hear the call of the 99%!

We'd like to make it clear: Occupy will continue. We are currently regrouping and gearing up for a big week of actions. November 16th is a day of student walkout at Portland State University. November 17th will see a large turnout against the planned city budget cuts and the loss of important union jobs and social services as and decentralized struggles around the banks...NATIONWIDE!

3) Plans are already in the works for an Immigrants Rights March in December, and many other important struggles.

Join a committee and get to assembling...http://OccupyPortland.org

We are on the way towards the biggest May Day yet!
