Dogcupy.jpg

This is a creative and PEACEFUL protest to draw positive media attention to our cause.

Who could talk badly about a bunch of God's most loyal creatures?

We will be meeting at the corner of 37th and Hawthorne, and protesting in front of all 3 banks in the immediate area...

Although you are welcome to protest wherever is convenient and oppressive.

This is a creative way to involve all of our friends who still want to participate in the Occupy movement but don't necessarily want to go downtown. We are showing that the Occupation is more than just downtown.

We also hope that this kind of event will inspire creativity within the ranks of the Occupiers.

So please join us. I'll bring the dog treats and you guys bring the creative dog signs...

Monday

Make Civilian Oversight Part of Portland's Charter!

[improve]

Occupy Portland in City Hall, 8 Dec 2011
  • Date: Monday, January 9, 2012
  • Time: 6PM - 8PM
  • Location: Rose Room, 3rd Floor, Portland City Hall 1221 SW 4th Avenue
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Change Portland's Charter so The People have meaningful oversight over police conduct.

What are your ideas? Two ideas are gaining traction:

  • The CRC should be provided legal representation other than the City Attorney, who has a responsibility to prevent the city from exposure to lawsuits: this duty conflicts with uncovering misconduct.
  • Eliminate police horses. Perhaps we could get animal rights people to join those of us who were pushed about by these workhorses and into tear-gassers barricading the street. If the city was concerned by infestations in the Occupy Portland camp, then they will be incensed to learn about the rats down by the horse barn!

Bring words you think should go into the City Charter. Bring your friends. Bring us change!

We need to demand structured change. Once we get this document amended, we can begin work on the U.S. Constitution!

For more information, contact Portland Copwatch.

You can also testify by email or by phone at the link below.

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)

This is a wonderful way to bring the fire of Occupy to the education system and infiltrate the curriculum. Students will learn our values with first hand experience and turn around and teach and influence their peers, co workers and those careers.

Captive Genders book launch in Portland

[improve]

  • Date: Wednesday, January 11, 2012
  • Time: 7:00pm until 10:00pm
  • Location: Red and Black Cafe 400 SE 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97214
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

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.

Council hearing

  • 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.

Although you are welcome to protest wherever is convenient and oppressive.

We also hope that this kind of event will inspire creativity within the ranks of the Occupiers.

So please join us. I'll bring the dog treats and you guys bring the creative dog signs...
