Occupy Portland, Not Afghanistan!
October 6th marks the 1st anniversary of Occupy Portland, while October 7th is the 11th anniversary of the war on Afghanistan. Tune in to hear Ani and Lyn talk with organizers of the events scheduled for that weekend.
A full weekend of action is being planned for this anniversary confluence. On Saturday, at noon people will gather in Shemanski Park (SW Park and Salmon) for a rally, with a march following. Marchers will re-gather in Shemanski for music.
On Sunday, there will be workshops and a speakers' panel discussion at the PCC Cascade Campus (N. Albina and Killingsworth).
Both events will connect the economic injustices of US policy to the wars and occupations. Events on both days will run from 12:00 Noon to 5:00 PM.
