The purpose of this and other Occupy Portland-related articles published on PortlandWiki is to provide a central repository for all relevant information related to this action that anyone can access and contribute to.
- Q: Isn’t this just a redundant replication of data presented on Occupy Portland’s web site, facebook page, twitter feed, etc?
- A: It can be but the point is to ensure that everyone has access to information in many forms. Not everyone uses Facebook or Twitter (or knows how to), or can make sense of the different levels of information on the occupy sites. In addition, Occupy Portland-related articles can be published here and can add value by consolidating, digesting, archiving, expanding, (etc.) the material found on various websites, discussion groups, social media feeds, and so on.
About Occupied Portland
Occupy Portland is Portland's answer to the Occupy Wall Street movement happening in New York City. The occupation will begin at noon on Thursday, October 6th, 2011 with a march out of SW Waterfront Park. The exact location of the camp will be announced one hour prior to the march.
We will gather in solidarity with the ongoing protest in New York City, Occupy Wall Street, and the growing number of cities whose people will no longer sit back watching corporate and special interests run their government. We are citizens of the United States, and this country is ours. We will take it back.
A draft version of the movement's goals, principles, and demands can be found at Occupy Portland - Goals and Demands.
