Reinforcements needed at Occupy Portland ASAP!
Tensions remain elevated at Occupy Portland as the police could raid our camp at any time. We are all very tired after having peacefully held off riot cops all night. WE NEED REINFORCEMENTS, of people, food, and winter gear. Victory for Occupy Portland, after a tense night of thousands of celebratory Portlanders facing down hundreds of militarized riot cops. Ours is the first Occupy encampment to successfully resist a massive police against us. We have been standing strong in all three of our parks since the 12:01 am eviction deadline. But we’re tired and hungry and still need support, because the police could still raid our camp at any time.
WE NEED YOU! Come down and spend the day at Occupy Portland and stand with in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and with working people across the world.
Please bring yourself, food (especially warm food), rain gear, warm-weather gear, and anything else you think may be useful.
This is only the beginning of a global revolution for social and economic justice. We invite all residents of the Portland area to stand with us and help make our camp an empowering, transformative space.
