Call to Action

Inspired by our friends at Occupy Wall Street, and Dr. Cornel West, Move To Amend is planning bold action to mark the second anniversary of the infamous Citizens United v. FEC decision!

Occupy the Courts will be a one day occupation of Federal courthouses across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday January 20, 2012.

Move to Amend volunteers across the USA will lead the charge on the judiciary which created — and continues to expand — corporate personhood rights.
Americans across the country are on the march, and they are marching OUR way.

They carry signs that say, “Corporations are NOT people! Money is NOT Speech!”

And they are chanting those truths at the top of their lungs!

The time has come to make these truths evident to the courts.

Occupy Oregon General Assembly

[improve]

Sepcorpstate.jpg
  • Date: Saturday, January 21, 2012

Purpose

January 21, 2012 - Oregon isn't done being Occupied.

900 Court Street Northeast Salem, Oregon 97301

Occupy Oregon Email Group: occupyor@googlegroups.com

Call to Action

Inspired by Occupy Wall Street, affinity groups from Unified Oregon Occupations are holding a General Assembly, following the nationwide Occupy the Courts Solidarity demonstration, on the steps of the Capitol Building in Salem.

We are calling out for representatives in Astoria, Bend, Eugene, Salem, Portland, Seaside, Roseburg, and all other Oregon Cities to rally with us and prepare for Occupy the Legislature on February 1st.

http://www.leg.state.or.us/

We will have an agenda discussion, which will include political involvement tactics, non-violent civil disobedience, and logistics.

We will be discussing housing options for people coming from outside of the Salem regions, so we can make sure thousands of Oregonians can be present on the first in a timely fashion.

If we show Solidarity, we can have an action similar to the protests in Madison, Wisconsin. http://en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​2011_Wisconsin_protests

Corporations are NOT people. Money is NOT Speech. ALEC and profit driven lobbyists will no longer control our government. The time has come to make these truths evident to the Capital.

Exercise your freedom and challenge systemic oppression. Occupy Multiply!

The Rise of the Dark Feminine and the Healing of the Wounded Masculine

[improve]

  • Date: Saturday, January 21, 2012
  • Time: 7:00pm until 8:00pm
  • Location: In Other Words 14 NE Killingsworth, Portland, OR 97217
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

There's a lot of hype about this year.

Come find out what to build up and what to put in the compost as we embark upon an exciting journey together in 2012.

Astrological events this year highlight the rising of the dark feminine archetype and deep healing for the wounded warrior.

The dark feminine is a power that is sourced in the living earth itself. It is wild and uncontainable, showing us the way to live with uncertainty. This energy helps us surrender old forms and transform them into vibrant, living, creative power.

The divine masculine is the part of each of us that wants to take action and make change, but it has been wounded and twisted by the dominator culture of violence and control. Now this part of the collective psyche is ready to be purified and get clear about what really matters.

Come find out more about what to expect in the year ahead and gain specific tools to support you in this great adventure of revolution and healing.

Two generations ago it was acceptable that people were divided on a bus by the color of their skin.

Today in the U.S. it is acceptable that the lack of insurance leads to 45,000 unnecessary deaths each year and that 60% of all bankruptcies that filed are due to the inability to pay outrageous medical bills.

Today, the U.S. is the only industrialized nation that does not have a Universal Healthcare System.

Bring your questions to this teach-in or just listen to Dr. Paul Gorman and guests discuss Healthcare in the U.S and in other nations.

Dharma Circle

  • 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.

$5-$10 suggested donation (All are welcome)

National Day of Action against Wells Fargo!

[improve]

Immigration.jpg

  • Location: Standard Insurance Building 900 SW 5th Ave, Portland, OR
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

On November 17th, 9 members of PCASC were arrested for standing in opposition to Wells Fargo's investment in private prisons.

Wells Fargo invests in private prison company's GEO Group and Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). These companies fund the writing & passing of racist and oppressive laws which criminalize communities of color in order to fill their prisons for maximized profit.

On January 24th we return to Wells Fargo to demand the divestment of stock in private prisons. It's a national day of action against Wells Fargo.
Join us along with other community organizations as we stand against Wells Fargo's racist investments.

We'll be meeting at the Standard Insurance Building at 900 SW 5th Ave at 12pm til 2pm.

The National Prison Industry Divestment Campaign is working to expose the profiteering of Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and the GEO Group, the biggest private prison companies in the US, who are making millions off the separation and incarceration of immigrants and communities of color at the expense of our tax dollars.

We are calling on all prison shareholders to divest from the prison industry.

End the deportations and the raids!
Abolish All Prisons!
Legalization Now!

Occupying Peace - Workshop and Practice Group in Nonviolent Communication

[improve]

Purpose

This is an 8 week workshop and group in Compassionate Communication that repeats every 8 weeks.

To meet needs for learning, continuity, safety and trust, the group is open to new people only during the first two sessions of each 8 week group. If you want to attend the group, please show up on the day or by 1/31/2012 at the latest.

What does it take to
  • Reclaim our power to be fully alive?
  • To heal the trauma and pain that keeps us stuck?
  • To deal with the judgment and criticism, the negative self talk and the attitude of demand, that keeps us separate from healthy connections with others?
What does it take to tell our truth in a way that can be more easily heard by others?

The human soul hungers for the deep nourishment of understanding, connection and self-expression.

The domination system has outposts in our heads. We've been trained to think and communicate in a way that re-enforces our powerlessness and victimization.

Why? Because powerful people can't be bossed around. We don't give away our power through compliance.

Every Tuesday we will explore what is alive in us and practice our communication using NVC.

Upgeya Pew is an experienced and trained educator in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and Mediation. His passion is in creating partnership culture through transformation in consciousness.

Attend this workshop and you will learn practical tools to
  • Learn what triggers you emotionally.
  • Clarify what’s underneath your negative self-talk so that you transform it into self-love.
  • Develop skills for responding rather than reacting when in conflict.
  • Increase your ability to build relationships based on compassion and mutual understanding.
  • Create a world where we care for and respect one another, celebrating our differences.

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.
