The following is a note from the Occupy Portland Front Desk. It is not approved by the General Assembly, but reflects an action (of autonomous units) relevant to Occupy Portland.
Dear Occupier of interest…
THE 99% ARE INVADING SOUTHEAST! TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH ! SEND HELP!
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 email@example.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).
