Important: Support Needed at City Hall Vigil

August 15, 2012

Just in from the Info Team:

Important update from the City Hall Vigil: Officials have told us that in order for signs to exist on the sidewalks at City Hall, instead of them being hung structures, they need to be carried by people. With this, they are at a urgent need for people to come down to pick up a sign and demonstrate.

Share this info on Facebook and Twitter!

The vigil keepers are calling for donations of balloons and helium gas. As part as a creative message tactic, the vigil keepers want these balloons, with to-the-point messages written by them, to float around the city and be given to passing children and adults to get a change of pace from the typical plasterboard sign.

If you haven’t been by the Vigil recently, they have been doing a great job with their signs and messaging.  If you can spare a few hours or at least help get the word out, it would be appreciated.  The Vigil’s next planning meeting will take place this Friday, August 17th at 5pm at Terry Schrunk Plaza – at the last meeting on Sunday we had a great turnout and very constructive time – feel free to stop by with your ideas Friday for further planning on next steps!

Chalkupy Bank Tour on Friday: “When chalking is a crime, only criminals will play hopscotch.”

August 15, 2012

Are you ready to chalkupy? Activists all over are learning of the wonders of calcium carbonate and the joys of expressing their creativity by way of chalking. Of course police across the country are responding by cracking down on the dangers posed by hopscotch.

This Friday, August 17th Occupy Portland’s weekly Bank Action is going on a “Chalkupy Bank Tour.” The Bank Actions have been growing every week, so if you haven’t been to one yet, hope to see you at Pioneer Courthouse Square at 2pm Friday!

This Friday, Occupy the Banks will be hosting it’s first Chalkupy Bank Tour! Last week one of our own was almost arrested for chalking on a sidewalk. We will be gathering at Pioneer Square at 2pm and then touring downtown banks to let them know just how we feel. Come on down and let’s bring back that n17 feel!
