From the Philippines to Libya to the streets of the U.S., people are rising up against injustice. Workers around the world are struggling to stay alive. Meanwhile, corporate profits are setting records, and out-of-state billionaires are financing an organized attempt to bring anti-worker legislation to Oregon. The 2016 Portland May Day Coalition is planning this huge May Day 2016 rally to promote resistance to capitalism and to anti-worker, anti-immigrant, and anti-reproductive rights legislation. Come help us use May Day to make a mass statement against all such anti-family legislation.

Assembly: Noon to 2 PM
2 - 4 PM - Rally

WHEN OUR HUMAN FAMILIES ARE UNDER ATTACK,
WHAT DO WE DO?
RISE UP! FIGHT BACK!

PORTLAND MAY DAY RALLY 2016
SHEMANSKI PARK, DOWNTOWN PORTLAND
12:00 - 2:00 PM : ASSEMBLY
2:00 - 4:00 PM : RALLY

From the Philippines to Libya to the streets of the U.S., people are rising up against injustice. In response to this, the forces of global capitalism and imperialism are working overtime to pit the masses of people on the planet against one another. Racist police murders continue while the victims are painted as criminals and thugs. Families are deported daily and immigrants are dehumanized and labeled as terrorists. Working families find it increasingly impossible to make ends meet in the U.S., while workers around the world are struggling to stay alive. Meanwhile, corporate profits are setting records.

All of these inhumane attacks are being bolstered by an organized attempt to bring anti-worker legislation to Oregon in 2016. This same legislation is currently operating in 26 states and there is clear evidence that the things we have worked so hard to eradicate — lower wages, no healthcare, and income disparities adversely impacting women, trans and gender variant folks, and people of color — are all things that are thriving within those states that have passed anti-worker measures. The anti-worker measures are being supported by anti-immigrant measures and anti-reproductive rights measures. All of these heinous acts are being financed by billionaires who don’t even live in Oregon.

Clearly, we must commit to working together to stop these attacks against working people. The 2016 Portland May Day Coalition is planning a huge May Day 2016 rally in Downtown Portland that will serve as a vehicle to promote the themes of resistance to capitalism, international solidarity, and respect for workers and oppressed groups within this society and the world. We intend to create a culture of resistance against attacks on workers under capitalism by using May Day as a mass statement against the anti-working family measure.

Join us on May Day 2016! Unite with us in fighting divisiveness in our communities. Join organizations working for peace and justice, and take it a step further by engaging in actions that directly address issues faced by our families. Let us rise up and fight back against attacks to our communities! We will gather at Shemanski Park at 12:00 PM for celebration, fun, and entertainment. The Rally will begin at 2:00 PM with speakers and musicians addressing the issues mentioned above.

The people united will never be defeated!
El pueblo unido jamás será vencido!

A major new work on the economics of animal exploitation, The Humane Economy (William Morrow), by Wayne Pacelle, president/CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, explores how our everyday economic decisions impact the survival and well-being of animals, and how we can make choices that better support them. Pacelle will be joined in conversation by United States Representative Earl Blumenauer.
The National Archives in Seattle holds thousands of Chinese Exclusion Act files on the Chinese living in Oregon. The files usually contain biographical information, most have photos, and some contain affidavits from witnesses, both Chinese and Caucasian. A file may cover a single trip back to China or several trips over thirty or forty years and include photos taken every time the Chinese person left the United States. It may also have a map of the applicant’s village in China or a list of all the partners in their corporation. Most contain written interrogations that offer a wealth of information on extended families in the United States and in China.

Patricia Hackett Nicola has been working as a volunteer with the Chinese Exclusion Act files at the National Archives in Seattle since 2001.
Join us and celebrate Pete Seeger's birthday and clean water campaigns with fellow lovers of the the Columbia River

Pete Seeger Jam Session featuring Joe Hickerson, concert, sing-a-long and more.

Pete lived along the Hudson River with his wife, Toshi. Outraged by the pollution in the river, the couple built a boat named the Clearwater. The Clearwater served as hub of the Hudson River revival and it caught the attention of John Cronin, who became the first Riverkeeper. The connection to water, music, and organizing runs strong in the Waterkeeper movement. We owe a part of our existence to the passion, dedication, and creatively of Pete Seeger. We hope you join us to celebrate his birthday and our Columbia River.

TICKETS: $10 in advance here, and $15 at the door. All proceeds benefit Columbia Riverkeeper
The Earth Wants You (City Lights) is a preacher's exhortation, an activist's primer, and a call to arms for a wild, creative, Earth-led cultural revolution.

Feminism has sold out, or so argues Andi Zeisler, founding editor and creative director of Bitch magazine. Drawing on almost 20 years of experience covering popular culture from the frontlines of the feminist movement, Zeisler offers a cultural history through the stories of institutions and real women, feminists and otherwise. She exposes how feminism has transformed into something barely warranting the name, ignoring the many for the one, shamelessly colluding with market forces and popular culture. Witty and fearless, We Were Feminists Once (PublicAffairs) is the story of how we could have let this happen, and where we go from here. This event is sponsored by Bitch Media.

Projections for Oregon show increasing risk of drought, wildfires, heat waves, storms, and floods, and predictions for worldwide consequences are even more scary. These impacts threaten our health and the systems that support us…but maybe there is a silver lining in this dark cloud looming? Climate change may be the greatest challenge we have known as a society, but it is also the greatest opportunity to achieve the kind of systemic change we need to improve the health of our communities and our environment. Come hear from Emily York, coordinator of the Oregon Climate and Health Program public.health.oregon.gov/HealthyEnvironments/ClimateChange/Pages/index.aspx, about how the Oregon Health Authority is working with partners to integrate climate resilience strategies into our public health system.

This event is sponsored by Healthy Environments and Health Education & Promotion sections of the Oregon Public Health Association www.oregonpublichealth.org.

TIME: Doors at 6 p.m. event at 7 p.m.

COST: $8 online advance tickets, $10* suggested cover at the door (see ticket link above). Online sales end at 4:00pm on day of show.

On April 12th, Precision Cast Parts sent a letter to neighbors around their Johnson Creek facility announcing a public meeting on May 25th. We just learned this meeting will be held at the Monarch Hotel near Clackamas Town Center rather than a central neighborhood venue. SPAQ members have worked to get the meeting location changed to no avail. For our transit-dependent neighbors, this is going to be a real barrier to participation as its a 45-minute bus ride to get there.

LET'S FILL THE ROOM on May 25th and let Precision know that community engagement means more than a slick new website and PR spin. Our community has real questions and deserves real answers.

Check pccstructuralscommunity.com for updates and/or email community@pccstructurals.com with your questions and concerns.
