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!

Gresham at 830 NW Eastman Parkway
Beaverton at 2660 SW Cedar Hills Blvd
Eastport Plaza at 4200 SE 82nd Ave Ste 1100

We’ll be shutting down at least these locations from 10am-4pm. Then we’ll meet up at the Lloyd Center recruiting location at 4:30pm and go on a short march to watch and support the surprise!*If you, your group or organization want to be involved, please email Cascadians Against War as pdxcaw@gmail.com

From the Anti-Austerity Study Group:

Join us for the second in a series of discussions about how people locally and around the world are resisting austerity and building strong coalitions to protect public services, education, and the safety net. Our goals are to educate ourselves, strengthen our relationships, and develop a shared analysis of austerity and a shared orientation to strategies that work.

We will start out with a potluck brunch and spend time getting to know each other. We’ll have some discussion in the large group and then break into small groups for more in-depth conversations using the discussion questions provided as a starting point.

The meeting will take place at 10am on Saturday, August 11th @ NE MLK and Thompson (214 NE Thompson St).  For more information check out the event page.
