Captive Genders book launch in Portland

Purpose

Join Eric A. Stanley, Ralowe T. Ampu and Toshio Meronek for a book launch and reading of Captive Genders.

Pathologized, terrorized, and confined, trans/gender non-conforming and queer folks have always struggled against the enormity of the prison industrial complex. The first collection of its kind, Eric A. Stanley and Nat Smith bring together current and former prisoners, activists, and academics to offer new ways for understanding how race, gender, ability, and sexuality are lived under the crushing weight of captivity. Through a politic of gender self-determination, this collection argues that trans/queer liberation and prison abolition must be grown together. From rioting against police violence and critiquing hate crimes legislation to prisoners demanding access to HIV medications, and far beyond, Captive Gender is a challenge for us all to join the struggle.

"new frameworks and new vocabularies that surely will have a transformative impact on the theories and practices of twenty-first century abolition." —Angela Y. Davis

Other details
Books will be available at the reading.

  • Time: 2pm – 5pm
  • Location: Portland City Hall 1221 SW 4th Avenue Portland
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

The Portland City Council's "Upcoming Agenda Items" now lists the "War Dollars Home" resolution on the agenda for Thursday, January 12, at 2 PM.

Peace & Justice Works is coordinating the growing number of partner organizations to line up some heavy-hitting testimony to support this important call for ending the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan and redirecting this war-spending to creating much-needed jobs, rebuilding infrastructure and funding human needs here at home.

The City Council hearing will also include two other important resolutions from the Mayor's office:

  • Ending to corporate personhood

and sorely-needed

  • Campaign finance reform

The hearing is open to all and public testimony will be accepted at that hearing. The council is expected to vote during the hearing.

Other details
It will likely to be a very crowded meeting, with folks there to support (and oppose) one or another (or all) of these resolutions. Please think about coming out to this meeting to show your support, and come a bit early if you want to sign up to testify at the hearing.

Also, if you'd like to get some ideas for what you might say at the hearing, check out "How Do We End the War in Afghanistan?", a presentation by Matthew Hoh and Zaher Wahab from last June.

Join our community protest against 7 Eleven building it's third store in our neighborhood. The purposed site is two blocks away from our local St. Johns Deli and Grocery store that has been apart of our area since 1979.

We want to draw attention to what we view as a move to push out competing locally owned convenience stores. St. Johns is our home and we want our neighbors' businesses to thrive instead of seeing their doors close due to a take over from Corporate franchises.

We will take to the site where 7 Eleven hopes to build with signs and our voices. This is a non-violent protest all are welcome.

Rally to allow Gresham BMXers to use Gresham Skate Park

  • Time: 12pm – 4pm
  • Location: Gresham Skate Park 219 S Main
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Let's show some solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Gresham.

Occupy Gresham is hosting the Gresham BMX Bike Group as well as the PDX Bike Swarm in a rally to support the right for BMX bikers to use the Gresham Skate Park (GSP). The group will meet at the GSP at 12PM on Sunday, January 15th and will rally until 4PM. The event is family friendly. There is currently an ordinance in Gresham that prohibits bicycles and scooters at the GSP. The police are under a Mayoral mandate to cite riders and confiscate all bikes that enter the park. The BMX bikers and their parents have started a grassroots movement to repeal the ordinance. They have gathered petitions and met multiple times with the City Council, but have faced repeated rebuttals. The skateboard community supports sharing the park with the BMX bikers. Nearly every other park in the state allows bicyclists and skaters to ride together in harmony. All parties involved in this event believe there is no valid reason for the current ordinance.

Follow the swarm blog for updates. http://www.PDXbikeswarm.org

We need bodies to show up so spread the word!

Occupy Martin Luther King Junior Day

[improve]

  • Date: Monday 16 January 2012

Purpose

Re-Occupy Public Space
A Modest Proposal for a Coordinated Effort in Honor of MLK Day

January’s economic news and reality will dramatize the continued need for our occupations. Let’s continue to talk and introduce some of these ideas at the next General Assembly:

  1. Organize a campaign of Re-Occupation during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, arriving first with paintings and other “images” of tents to challenge the logic of restrictions against tents, in addition to all other types of culture-jamming actions.
  2. Continue the global dialogue seeking a transition from the current failed political and economic system to a post-capitalist “real” democratic future.
  3. Strengthen inter-occupation communication of ideas, solutions, and calls for global days of action.
  4. Consider adopting some simple guidelines such as a dedication to nonviolence, that the food is free for everyone without restriction, that decisions will be make by consensus at the General Assembly, and that drugs and alcohol are not to be consumed at the occupation.
  5. Encourage local officials to end their efforts to drive the occupations and tents off public space with petitions, meetings, participation in public hearings, and all other nonviolent actions. Remind city officials that the UN and other international organizations support our right to continue these very important occupations.

  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Dharma Circles invite us to rest in the ease of the present moment.

Frosty leaves as non-dual teachings from the world’s wisdom traditions open into the spacious field of the heart. Reflection, silent sitting, and silent movement soften our boundaries and open awareness of our essential nature, nearer to us than our own breath.

All contemplative practices and levels of experience (or no experience) are welcome.

The door is open at 6:45. At 7:00 pm we begin with dialogue and dharma reflection, followed by an hour of silent practice.

Feel free to bring cushions, mats, or whatever is comfortable for your sitting practice (some cushions and chairs are provided).

Grounded in the heart, our actions grow from deep soil to yield fruits that enhance peace, justice, beauty, and balance in all that we do.

In a tumultuous world, maintaining a spacious heart requires attention, intention, and ever-deepening love.

Sangha or satsang is created anytime we are present with others for reflection or practice in the space of the heart, in service of truth. Sharing that intention, our dialogues invite us into reflection on our deepest Being, Mystery, Emptiness, the Beloved.

Every faith or no faith are equally welcome here.

We embrace human nature just as it is, holy and broken, perfect and imperfect at the same time, and steep together in the timeless present moment, where definitions slip away.

Gathering in satsang, sangha, or a community of practice provides a rich common ground as we travel in the terrain of the Heart.

OCCUPY THE DREAM: A morale booster for the Occupy Wall St. Movement!

[improve]

Purpose

I“Occupy the Dream – A Morale Booster for the Occupy Wall Street Movement.” The event is being held in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday.

Other details
Organized by TUPAC, this event is:

  • ALL AGES
  • Donation Only
  • And no one will be turned away due to lack of funds

There is no set entrance fee, but donations are encouraged because the event is in part a fundraiser for two Occupy Portland protesters; David Burgess and Justin James Bridges.

David Burgess is an activist for peace and justice who was marching peacefully with other Occupy Portland marchers in early November when he was attacked by police and wrongly accused of pushing a Portland police officer into an oncoming Trimet bus. Since that time, David has incurred mounting legal expenses along with medical bills as a result of injuries he sustained when attacked by police officers.

Justin James Bridges is a local musician who participated in the Occupy Portland encampment. On the last Saturday night at the encampment he performed at Terry Shrunk Plaza, but by the next night he was hospitalized from injuries sustained when police attacked remaining protesters who were attempting to peacefully hold the encampment after the mayor’s orders to vacate. Since that time, Justin has accumulated thousands of dollars in medical bills and legal expenses.

Monday night’s event features the following schedule

Volunteer qualifications
A caring heart and a couple hours of your time. We will meet at 9:00 AM at the Friends Meeting House to prepare lunches, then go out and distribute them on the streets around 11:00.
Please let us know if you can volunteer!

We also welcome donations. Just $10 provides 5 people with a fresh, filling meal. Home-made cookies, brownies, or treats to tuck in the lunches are much appreciated too! Give however you can, or jump in and volunteer. The more volunteers there are, the more folks we can serve.

Your donation will help provide food for this program.

Living Earth does not receive support from corporate donors or foundations.

Building Intentional Community

[improve]

  • Date: Tuesdays
  • Time: 4:00pm – 5:30pm
  • Location: Peace House 2116 NE 18th Ave, PDX
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Every Tuesday from 4pm to 5:30pm the Peace House (2116 NE 18th Ave, PDX) is hosting a work group to help interested Occupy participants to find ways to establish functioning intentional communities.

Drawing on their 25-year experience of living in community, members of the Peace House will share ideas, resources and "hand holding" with those who would like to get started.

This is an exercise in mutual sharing. No one is an expert in how to live together in community, but together all can learn what is needed.

Bring your vision of what kind of community you want to live in and share it with us.

Together, we will work to bring that vision into reality.

Everyone For Mayor

[improve]

Purpose

During the Movement Building Open Forum on Tuesday the 17th, occupiers will discuss "Everyone For Mayor" - a new way of engaging with local politics.

Instead of voting for just one person, and trusting they will live up to all the promises they've made, 99 people will run under the same umbrella, so decisions can be made collectively.

We are trying to gauge how much energy we have for this and what level of Everyone for Mayor we can do. Please spread the word to others too!
