Occupy Portland! The revolution is here. The revolution is now. The revolution is being wikified.

The purpose of this and other Occupy Portland-related work on PortlandWiki is to provide a central organizing space for all relevant information and work related to this gathering that anyone can access and contribute to. This is a "leaderless movement" so we are all involved in the work details. (New to wikis? Learn how to add and edit content).

About Occupy 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.

From the official website:

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 note about Occupy Portland on PortlandWiki:

Q: Is the information here, on PortlandWiki, a redundant replication of data presented on Occupy Portland’s web site, facebook page, twitter feed, etc?
A: Some of it may 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. Occupy Portland work on the wiki adds value by consolidating, digesting, archiving, expanding, creating (etc.) the material found on various websites, discussion groups, social media feeds, and so on.
