The Dill Pickle Club proudly presents The 99%: A Teach-in on Occupy Portland. The forum will consist of short presentations to objectively bring together various perspectives on the current occupations movement. The event will focus on the economic, political and social factors that have led to the emergence of occupations throughout the country, and more specifically the movement’s impact on a localized level.
