On Friday the Portland Parks and Recreation sent an email to Occupy Portland stating the General Assembly meetings at Director Park are no longer allowed to take place. While the GA is still scheduled to occur at its usual time and place, a #reOccuPizzy will also happen at Director Park this Sunday.
Haven’t heard of #reOccuPizzy? A brief background: In April, occupiers started regularly returning to Chapman Square for a few hours in the evening to create a space which encouraged dialogue and conversation, giving an opportunity for people to come together, share ideas and build relationships to strengthen the planning process for future OPDX actions. One thing those who experienced a #reOccuPizzy at Chapman learned was they would not be evicted by the police or park rangers as long as they were walking in a figure eight around the park. In recent weeks, the #reOccuPizzy has moved from Chapman and has shown up in support of other Occupy events, including in support of the Vigil and the continued occupation outside of City Hall. This Sunday #reOccuPizzy will be in support of the scheduled GA at Director Park at 7pm.
