N3: Solidarity Against Austerity Call to Action - Enough is Enough
- Date: Saturday, November 3rd 2012
Our Dreams Don’t Fit in Their Ballot Boxes!
No to austerity! Yes to reclaiming our communities!
Occupy Portland and Portland Action Lab invite all people to participate
in a national call to action to say No to Austerity and Yes to building
our collective power. On November 2nd and 3rd (N3) we will mobilize and
march, voting with our feet by taking direct action to interrupt the
normal course of business. Our power is in our neighborhoods, building
alternatives, and taking to the streets! Business and our governments
hoard wealth, privatize our communities, and burden us with enormous debt
– This is AUSTERITY and we say Enough is Enough!
We call on all participants in the Occupy movement, rank-and-file union
members, students, our elders and people-at-large to organize creatively
and return to our public spaces with this message on the weekend before
the election. Our communities will make our own decisions and control our
own resources, no matter who is elected. We are not alone; austerity is a
consequence of a failed economic system and people around the world are
rising up. We act in solidarity and take inspiration from the peoples of
Greece, South Africa, Quebec, Chile, and beyond who are fighting austerity and
the destruction of their communities.
Solidarity against Austerity!
