On Sunday June 4th, 2017, just a few days after one of Joey Gibson’s fan boys murdered 2 people of the max train, Gibson and his goons invaded our city. He invited violent alt-right out of town agitators, Kyle “Based Stickman” Chapman and “Baked Alaska”, as guests of honor. Our local officials, including Mayor Ted Wheeler and then chief of police Mike Marshman, invited Joey to speak with them in a private meeting before the event, accomplishing nothing but stoking the fire of anger in our community. Portland showed up in force to counter Gibson’s hateful rhetoric, outnumbering their attendance by at least 1000 people. After hours of peaceful protest, PPB attacked the counter protesters to create cover for Gibson’s rally to leave the park. The police created a war zone in downtown Portland that day, shooting protesters with pepper spray bullets and throwing flash bang grenades into crowded areas, forcing the crowd to leave the area, kettling and detaining over 300 people in a mass illegal roundup. PPB has a well detailed, sordid history of overuse of force. They continually murder, terrorize, and abuse; people of color, children, people in mental health crisis, and the houseless in Portland, all of our most marginalized neighbors. They attack peaceful protesters and protect the violent fascists at every turn. It’s time we take our town back, and stand up to the Portland police and tell them we will no longer allow them to bully, abuse, and murder us with impunity. Join us for a solidarity rally on Sunday June 3rd, 2:00pm, at Chapman Park. Tags: June 3rd, June 4th, kettled, kettle, solidarity, anti cop, Rally.

Since the election of Trump, there has been an explosion of women's organizing, highlighted by the "Me Too" movement. And in recent years the power of women's organizing has also been felt in workplaces, as teachers, nurses, hotel workers, domestic workers, fast food workers and others, have organized and fought for better wages and working conditions, and increasingly, expanded social services and new progressive taxes as well.  But the fight for women’s equality and power is far from over. 

 

 

Come hear four women from our community talk about the challenges faced by women in the workplace and the effort of unions to respond to these challenges, as well as how unions and working women have historically influenced the broader women's movement.   We'll also get a chance to think about and discuss what issues and struggles might well be next for women and their unions and how contemporary struggles by women in unions might welcome in a new "working class feminism.”

 

Presenters: Reyna Gillet, campaign organizer of grocery workers; Jennifer Graham, Vice President of Oregon Unite-HERE Local 8; Andrea Lemoins, organizer with AFSCME District Council 75; and Nikki Mandel, Professor Emerita of History, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

The "Great Recession" financial crisis of 2007/8 brought forth the need for Americans to examine the financial institutions which came to negatively impact Americans, increasing the inequities of American society as well as the divide based on race. That examination begun with a critical look at the role of the too-big-to-fail banks and a desire to develop financial institutions which support the needs for local financing of local needs, separated from the profit seeking activities of the too-big-too-fail banks.

Thus a movement to form public banks was reborn. The movement today focuses on the formation of municipal banks. Movement grows coast to coast with active efforts from Seattle, San Francisco, and Santa Fe and going east to Washington DC and Philadelphia. And now the effort starts in Portland.
