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"; we are all involved in the work details.

(New to wikis? Learn how to add and edit content).

Occupy Portland is leaderless, but not structure-less. The central and primary web site for the movement is occupyportland.org -- so if you want to help organize, go there. If you want to ask a basic question or get a quick orientation, the best place is probably the Occupy Portland Facebook page.

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 various Occupy sites. The Occupy Portland work here on the wiki adds value by consolidating, digesting, archiving, and expanding on the material found on various websites, discussion groups, social media feeds, and so on.

About Occupy Portland

Occupy Portland is Portland's answer to the Occupy Wall Street movement happening in New York City. The demonstration of solidarity with the Wall Street protesters will begin at noon on Thursday, October 6th, 2011 with a march out of SW Waterfront Park. Following the march, a public space in Portland will be "occupied" and used a a central location for meetings, events, and communications. (For logistical reasons, the exact location of the occupation site has not yet been announced.)

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."
