Occupy the Boycott is a nationwide boycott, organized by Occupy Texas, targeting corporations guilty of exploiting employees, customers or the environment, profiteering off of war or other conflict or any other misdeeds which reduce our human rights or quality of life. Guests are asked to suggest other corporations for inclusion in the boycott, (Please include documentation, which justifies their inclusion.) suggest criteria which the corporations must meet, in order for them to be removed from the list, invite all of your friends and acquaintances to join the boycott, for no boycott will be successful without big numbers, act locally to promote Mom and Pop businesses people can patronize in place of the boycotted corporations and refrain from patronizing the boycotted corporations. The boycott begins Labor Day and continues until the last corporation meets our criteria.

The corporations we are boycotting are AT&T, Academi/Xe/Blackwater,The ALEC corporations (www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=ALEC_Corporations

Right now, Union Pacific Railroad is trying to EXPAND its track in the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area -- the same area where the June 3 oil train disaster occurred -- so it can bring in more and bigger oil trains.

Now is the time to show you're against this dirty and dangerous proposal! The Wasco County Planning Commission is holding a public meeting to get input from the public on this disastrous plan. We need concerned residents like you to show strong public opposition to this dangerous project, and make it clear to decision-makers that we need to stop oil train traffic through the Columbia River Gorge, not expand it!

Constitution Day
 
Join us on the one year anniversary of the city's declaration of a housing emergency to demand a REAL response with REAL impact to our housing crisis.

The kids have just started another school year, yet no-cause evictions and enormous rent increases continue to threaten their security and educational success. And the shorter days are a reminder that winter is around the corner .... will we let our lack of tenant protections continue to add our families, our sick, and our elderly to the growing homeless population this winter?

We cannot wait for more supply. We cannot wait for the state to act. How many more of our residents are forced to choose between rent and food, financially destabilized by rent increases and forced displacement, pushed into homelessness, or further and further out of the city (only to add to the growing traffic congestion by driving back in for work) before we say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! How many more waves of gentrification do we have to powerlessly watch before we say WE WILL NOT BE MOVED!?

Together we can control the rent. But only if we do it together. WE NEED EVERYONE there to show our city that this is a problem we can ignore no longer. We won't settle for any more excuses -- but that goes for all of us too. YOU need to be there to show that renters aren't just a special interest group -- that we are Portland. And being able to have safe, stable, secure, healthy, affordable housing in the communities we built and mututally depend upon is good for everyone, good for the city, and vastly more important than an entitlement to profit.

This march is LEGALLY PERMITTED and will be SAFE and FAMILY FRIENDLY because EVERYONE NEEDS HOUSING.

Oregon schools suffer from chronic underfunding, and it will take engaged citizens to turn things around, contend the organizers.

"For too long our children have suffered the consequences of Oregon's inability to adequately fund our public schools," aid Robin Wisdom, Leagues of Women Voters of Oregon, one of the organizers of the event.

The event provides an overview of the current state of Oregon schools and how we got her, while offering aplatform for discussing ideas of how to solve the funding problem.

People can learn more about the project by visiting www.greatoregonschools.org.

Are you a member of the Oregon Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) who wants to ensure your retirement doesn’t come at the expense of a livable future? Or are interested in helping us get Oregon PERS to divest? Currently, over 331,000 Oregonians are invested in the fossil fuel industry simply by being a member of PERS, as current or retired public employees.
This is a new campaign to remove the social license of the fossil fuel industry to destroy the climate and our ability to live on this planet.
