Occupy Bagdad InfoDear Occupier of interest…
Kidding… kind of.

Auctions, Comedy, and a Movie

The evening of Tuesday, November 8, a fundraiser called “Occupy Bagdad” will be hosted at Hawthorne’s Bagdad Theatre on behalf of Occupy Portland. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the information booth of Occupy Portland or online (at http://www.etix.com/ticket/online/performanceSearch.jsp?performance_id=1577844&cobrand=cascadetickets).

Silent Auction: 6pm
Silent auction needs help! We need interesting donations to be bid upon by our guests. Specifically, we’re looking to have local businesses stand with us, offering their goods and services in the name of people of Portland. Do you know a local massage therapist who would offer an hour session for our cause? A Ma and Pa bed and breakfast? A brilliant yet out of work oil painter looking for exposure? If so, let us know by email at occupycomedypdx@gmail.com.

Comedy Show: 8pm
Come laugh about the revolution! Nato Green (“Laughter Against the Machine”), Dwight Slade (“Comedy Central”), Augie Smith (“2010 San Francisco Comedy Competition Winner”), Arlo Stone (“Current Occupy Portland Resident”) and special guests will entertain us 99-percenters with their humor and wits.

The People’s Story: 10pm
This Howard Zinn documentary, will be shown on the big screen. If you can make it down to Bagdad after our General Assembly, you’ll be able to join us for this special viewing.

We will be accepting all sorts of donations for Occupy Portland. A list of camp needs can be found here).

    I don’t understand why you need donations of winter clothing. These people who are part of the Occupy movement have to have winter clothing – they live in Portland! I think a lot of your Occupiers are being greedy. They have homes/apartments/clothing. They were supporting themselves before the camp went up and now they are dependent upon the camp? That’s BS! I support the movement but don’t feel that I should have to support each individual that has chosen to camp.

    Great…..time to shut this down and start over.

    According to the Portland Police Bureau (PPB), one protester was arrested after allegedly shoving a police sergeant into a moving TriMet bus, then running back into the crowd. He was taken into custody following the march. David Anthony Burgess, 30, was charged with assaulting a public safety officer, interfering with a police officer, disorderly conduct in the second degree and harassment.

    According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Burgess plead guilty to two counts of class A sexual battery in 2009 while working at a massage parlor in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was sentenced to one year in jail.
