Occupy Portland: Columbus Day 'Celebration' & Convergence Monday

Notes from the organizers; events take place from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m.

Occupy Portland

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - A number of events are scheduled in conjunction with the Occupy Portland rally Monday. Events start at Noon at NE 8th & Oregon -site of Earl Bloomies office & Native Fisheries Program & State Building, which is the location of the highest concentration of state employees in Portland. That building is open and organizers say there will be a group focused on Earl (even though his office is closed Monday) and a group messaging for a variety of "state" focused topics.

A free Chili Lunch will be provided at 2:00 p.m. at Holliday Park (between Max line and the Lloyd Center Mall) ~BYOB - meaning bring your own bowl as well as your own non-alcoholic beverage. (Food provided by "Now We're Cookin'. We are planning food for 1000 people.)

Organizers say they have an autonomous kitchen with the mission of feeding people associated with Occupy Portland actions NOT at the main occupation site.

After Lunch there will be a focus on re-thinking Columbus Day, indigenous leadership, corporate colonization education etc. A microphone will be available for the voices of native people of the Americas who have priority at this event.

By 6:00 p.m. the group will march over to the main OCCUPY PORTLAND site, the likely route is across the Steel Bridge.

Logistical Notes:

  • Lloyd Center area has lots of covered outdoor spaces & great bathroom access!
  • PLEASE do not disrupt public transit as we are counting on it to get people to/from our event.
  • This is a non-violent action with an intention of non-smoking & no drugs/alcohol in main areas.
  • If you want to volunteer for prep/planning show up Sunday at 3pm at Oregon Park (just off NE Glisan & 28th).
The main point of contact for this action is Kelly Caldwell / tel: 503.849.9648 (Portland)
