Climate Voices: A Film Night with IELP

[improve]

Climate voice.jpg

  • Time: 7:00pm until 9:00pm
  • Location: The Hollywood Theater 4122 NE Sandy Boulevard , Portland, OR
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Join the International Environmental Law Project for the screening of two films that explore the personal face of climate change.

'To the Land of the Setting Sun' considers how perspective and framing impact the environmental reality we see. The award-winning short film was produced in Portland for a 48-hour Go Green film competition, and later screened at Cannes Film Festival in 2011.

'There Once Was an Island: Te Henua E Nnoho' chronicles the small island community of Taku as they face the first devastating affects of climate change. Lacking even electricity, the islanders come to understand how rising seas and failing crops are the result of climate change--and consider what they must do to save their community.

The International Environmental Law Project is a non-profit legal clinic housed at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. For the past two years, IELP has provided pro bono legal advice to Pacific small island developing States within the United Nations climate change negotiations.

The staff and student clerks of IELP will offer an update from the December 2011 United Nations climate change negotiations, as well as some reflections on the personal voices of climate change. The evening will conclude with a raffle.

You can purchase tickets in advance here: http://prod3.agileticketing.net/WebSales/pages/TicketSearchCriteria.aspx?evtinfo=26583%7E5f969332-ec94-41af-822d-5c7ec8f2ca2b&epguid=2ed1a565-6d57-411b-ba95-e2f1d8e9a2c5&

Other details
Occupy Portland calls for a national day of non-violent direct action to reclaim our voices and challenge our society's obsession with profit and greed by shutting down the corporations. We call on the People of Portland to target corporations that are part of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) which is a prime example of the way corporations buy off both our legislators and our legislation, serving the interests of transnational megacorporations and NOT people. They used it to create the anti-labor legislation being fought against in Wisconsin and to craft the racist SB 1070 Bill in Arizona. There are countless ways ALEC influences impacts each of our lives, please check the website. #F29

A Budget For the Rest of Us

[improve]

Unionmade.jpg
  • Date: Thursday, Jan 26
  • Time: 7:00 PM
  • Location: Oregon Fair Trade Campaign Office - 310 SW 4th Ave., Suite 436
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Occupy Portland’s Labor Solidarity Committee invites everyone to help plan and organize a Community Assembly to create a people’s budget. We will create a platform where working people can craft a budget and spending proposal addressing the primary concerns we all share.

Other details
A budget prioritizes how money is spent in any economy. Regardless of whether a budget governs the expenditures of a household or whether it governs business, or government, it must meet the needs of all who rely on it. A budget that only serves the 1% at the expense of the 99% fails entirely.

This is where you come in. We invite you to bring your ideas to shape a “people’s budget.” Working together, we can overcome existing budgetary shortfalls, and provide the appropriate revenue necessary to support services that remain neglected or unfunded.

We will create an “action plan” aimed at achieving our budget demands. This will launch an ongoing campaign focused on achieving our aims. To mark the formal launch of our campaign, we’ll undertake a symbolic action, such as marching to City Hall to present our demands. To ensure we do not lose focus or momentum, we will mark the path to achieving our goals with clear mileposts. Our goal is to proceed with our first Community Assembly on April 7th, 2012 at First Unitarian Church.

Right now more and more of your friends, neighbors co-workers and family members are willing to stand up and be heard. Won’t you join us?

Local Candidate Forum

  • Time: 5:30pm - 8pm
  • Location: Community room at People's Coop
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

On Friday January 27th, 2012 the Portland Green Party, Oregon Progressive Party, and Occupy Portland participants are coming together for a local candidate forum in the community room at People's Coop.

Meet and greet starts at 5:30pm, forum begins at 6pm and goes until 8pm. Go upstairs to the Community Room.

Candidates for Portland City Council, Mayor, and Multnomah County Commissioner are invited.

Participants will be limited to thirty audience members asking questions and six candidates answering. In addition there will be one convener, two facilitators, and an Occupy media person for the live stream.

Ten spots are reserved for Occupy Portland in the audience. These will be filled on first come first serve basis but with spokes/POC given preference and the potential for this to be replaced in whole or part by representatives chosen as a result of a Spokes Council or GA decision.

The whole concept is for this forum to be a productive working conversation that not only tells us who the candidates are but also works towards positive change. It will not be a draining debate experience. This will be an energizing positive event that will hopefully lead to collaborative progressive efforts.

If this event is successful we may host several more. Contact Jorden Leonard if you would like to attend.

Other details
Prior to the forum introduction statements from the candidates will be made available online here and elsewhere, and may in paper the day of. The candidates will also receive a statement from each of our groups about what is important to us locally prior to the day of the forum.

If more than 6 candidates wish to attend then Occupy Portland will get to choose 2 of the 6. This will be a choice made by Occupy attendants unless a proposal passes through the Spokes Council or GA that would make this decision.

The goal of this forum is to help inform the groups/individuals participating about who they might like to endorse, as well as building relationships between candidates and the groups.

The Obama administration recently overruled a decision by the FDA that would have allowed all girls of reproductive age to purchase Plan-B OneStep (the morning after pill) without a prescription. Even though FDA Administrator Margaret Hamburg said in a statement that the pill could be used safely by girls as young as 11, Kathleen Sebelius and the Health and Human Services Department, for the first time ever in history, publicly disregarded their own experts.

Put it on the shelf! Plan B One-Step should be made available on Oregon store shelves for all girls of reproductive age, NOW!

Many pharmacies are closed on evenings and weekends, even if the drugstores they operate in are still open; since Plan B is most effective if taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex, such delays matter. The American Academy of Pediatrics found no legitimate reasons to continue requiring a prescription for the pill. According to the group, “it is estimated that appropriate use of emergency contraception could reduce the number of unintended pregnancies each year by half and thereby similarly reduce the abortion rate.”

The experts agree, Plan B is safe for all. So bring all your friends with you (and a sign!) and together we can demand that our leaders allow Plan B to be put on Oregon store shelves, NOW!

Bad Encounter Line PDX General Interest Meeting

[improve]

Streetyth.jpg
  • Date: Saturday, January 28, 2012
  • Time: 4:00pm until 6:00pm
  • 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

Chicago's Bad Encounter Line (BEL) is a project and an organizing tool of Young Women's Empowerment Project, a youth-led grass-roots community group that uses harm reduction approach to support and empower girls and young women (including transgender girls and young women) involved in street economies.

BEL is a way for youth (girls, boys, and others) to report bad experiences they have had with institutions that are supposed to help them, such as social services, health care system, welfare system, police, etc. They use reports to share information among the youth, pressure these institutions to do better job providing assistance to youth, improve their staff training, and hold them accountable.

We think Portland needs a similar project. We are alarmed by increasingly police-centered approach that our public and non-profit institutions are taking to "protect" youth (e.g. shutting down Occupy Portland to evict youth so that they would be forced to return to youth services, outreach workers asked to "ride along" the police car for prostitution sweeps), and feel that a project similar to BEL would help counter the trend.

Some things to note
  • While we (the organizers) are currently a group of adults concerned about what other adults as well as social institutions are doing to the youth, we intend to operate from youth-centered, anti-adultism perspective. We are going to provide some resources at the meeting to help adult participants (including ourselves) learn how to become better allies for youth rights. In the meantime, some resources can be here in case you want to read ahead: http://www.nyln.org/​resources-3/​information-clearinghouse/​orc-adult-allies/
  • If you can, please read about YWEP/BEL before the meeting. The material can be found at http://ywepchicago.wordpress.com/
  • If you are a social worker or medical professional, we welcome you and your expertise--we love insurgent youth workers! But please come as an individual, not as a representative of your agency; nobody should attend the meeting on their employer's time. We want to keep this an organizing event, not a social service provider networking event.
  • If you are a member of the police force or other law enforcement agencies, please do not attend the meeting. Please contact the organizer privately if you want to help.
  • We want to support a formation of youth leadership team to facilitate youth-only discussion/organizing groups. Start a conversation with youth in your life who might be interested, and invite them to our meeting if you feel it is appropriate to do that.
Please spread the word!

text @noegtpdx to 23559 for late-breaking announcements.

One of the most important labor struggles of our generation is happening in our backyard. Just one hour away in Longview, WA, the 1% is making an historic grab to break the labor movement. EGT has broken the 80-year-long standing agreement with ILWU, a union well known for its role in supporting the struggles of 99%.

Join Occupy Portland, Occupy Oakland, Occupy Longview, and a growing number of unions and organizations in mobilizing to Longview as soon as we receive the call for solidarity. This is a massive mobilization and all eyes are on us in Portland to help provide housing and transportation for supporters from as far away as Florida!

Help spread the word far and wide.

"A struggle that will shape the future for dockworkers around the world is coming to a head in Longview, Wash. Sometime in the coming days and weeks, the multinational conglomerate EGT Development is expected to attempt to load its first ship with grain at a newly built state-of-the-art terminal that isn't using International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 21 labor, in defiance of a contract that has been in place for almost a century." - http://www.occupytheegt.org/

"The International Longshoremen Workers Union is engaged in a crucial struggle at the Port of Longview, Washington, where a multinational company, EGT, is attempting to operate as the West Coast’s only non-ILWU facility, despite promising otherwise when it received millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies to build its grain exporting terminal. Now, as the first ship makes its way to the port to fill up with grain bound for Asia, it is reported that Coast Guard ships and helicopters will be used to escort this ship. Use of our tax dollars and our military to assist such union busting is horrifying." - Letter from the SCFL to President Obama

Presentation: Collectivizing Alberta Co-op

Purpose

The staff at Alberta Grocery Co-op are dumping the bosses off their backs!

At this event we'll be hearing about the intense fight within Alberta's board, co-op membership and paid staff over workplace democracy.

This fight included retaliatory firings, workplace censorship and even a manager who called the cops on a former worker for "trespassing".

To fight back members and workers formed Members for a Democratic Co-op and forced a vote by consumer members about whether the staff would be democratically self-managed or have a (dictatorial) general manager.

Several other bylaw change proposals, including ones that guarantee free speech in the work place and that limit wage disparity were proposed.

The workers won!

Every single change was passed. Now they're faced with transitioning to collective management from a temporary general manager, the second hired to run the store in the chaos created by the fight over the co-op's fate. So we'll be hearing about how that's going and what their plan is. This should be super interesting!

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.

EPIC CITY HALL SLUMBER PARTY

[improve]

Slumber.jpg
  • Date: Tuesday, Jan 31 at 10:00pm until Wed Feb 1 at 8:30am

Purpose

We will be sleeping on the sidewalk in support of the basic human right to sleep, and in protest of the cities 'camping ban' which makes it illegal to create any sort of shelter (including a sleeping bag).

There are Portlanders (including families) who break the law every single night, and risk random arrest and loss of possessions, just simply by sleeping.

My goal is to make a chain of people that wraps around City Hall ensuring that members of City Council will have to literally walk over a body to get to work. Of course they will figure out a way to not have to do that, but it is still our goal!!!

We picked the 31st so that we would be in front of City Hall on the morning of February 1st when the city begins to fine Right2DreamToo, a self sustaining rest area on West Burnside.

The City of Portland's Bureau of Development Services (BDS) is fining a group that is providing emergency shelter to dozens of people in downtown for code violations related to recreational camping ordinances.

Right 2 Dream Too set up an emergency rest area for people who are houseless on Fourth and Burnside on National Homeless Day October 10, 2011. Since then R2DToo has provided shelter, food, referrals, and community for 50-70 people a night at no cost to the city.

On January 1, 2012 leaders of the group received notice that they would be fined $641.30 a month because they did not comply with city code relating to recreational camping. The group's leaders filed an appeal pointing out that this is not a recreational camping area

"There is a wide gulf between operating a recreational facility with the goal of sheltering people on vacation and operating a facility with the goal of sheltering people who can not otherwise obtain safe shelter and experience a restful sleep. It is illogical to lump them under the same set of administrative rules. We strongly object to language that suggests anything we are doing is in any way related to recreational activities."

The group offered work with the Bureau personnel to investigate the developmental permit process, and asked the City to waive penalties due to hardship. In a reply letter the Bureau of Development Services denied the appeal informed R2DToo that they must file an Administrative Review Appeal along with a fee of $1,215 by January 16, 2012 if they want to appeal further.

"Why should a group of people who sleep in tents, with no other housing option, be considered a recreational campground? ," asks Ibrahim Mubarak, one of the organizers of Right 2 Dream Too. "With hundreds of people on the street, and the numbers climbing daily, why is BDS fining us for trying to be safe and survive?"

Members of the group are undaunted, though. They will continue to talk with city officials to work out a solution while advocating for their rights.

Occupy The EGT: Join the Caravan

[improve]

Dockwrk.jpg
  • Date: Sun Jan 29 at 7:30am until Wed Feb 15 at 10:30am

Purpose

Sign up here for announcements and coordination: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/embeddedform?formkey=dG83Q2hkSzFlZVBtMTlKWV9wV084cFE6MQ

text @noegtpdx to 23559 for late-breaking announcements.

One of the most important labor struggles of our generation is happening in our backyard. Just one hour away in Longview, WA, the 1% is making an historic grab to break the labor movement. EGT has broken the 80-year-long standing agreement with ILWU, a union well known for its role in supporting the struggles of 99%.

Join Occupy Portland, Occupy Oakland, Occupy Longview, and a growing number of unions and organizations in mobilizing to Longview as soon as we receive the call for solidarity. This is a massive mobilization and all eyes are on us in Portland to help provide housing and transportation for supporters from as far away as Florida!

Help spread the word far and wide.

"A struggle that will shape the future for dockworkers around the world is coming to a head in Longview, Wash. Sometime in the coming days and weeks, the multinational conglomerate EGT Development is expected to attempt to load its first ship with grain at a newly built state-of-the-art terminal that isn't using International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 21 labor, in defiance of a contract that has been in place for almost a century." - http://www.occupytheegt.org/

"The International Longshoremen Workers Union is engaged in a crucial struggle at the Port of Longview, Washington, where a multinational company, EGT, is attempting to operate as the West Coast’s only non-ILWU facility, despite promising otherwise when it received millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies to build its grain exporting terminal. Now, as the first ship makes its way to the port to fill up with grain bound for Asia, it is reported that Coast Guard ships and helicopters will be used to escort this ship. Use of our tax dollars and our military to assist such union busting is horrifying." - Letter from the SCFL to President Obama
