People's Movement Assembly in Portland May 8th! (Site archived in 2010)

What does clearcut logging in Mt. Hood have in common with homelessness in Portland?

Both are reason for radical, systemic change.

Neither will change without a people's movement.

(If you don't have a group already, come to Cluster Up! April 3rd)

In June 2010, people from around the Americas will assemble in Detroit for the US Social Forum. In order to prepare, activists living near Portland are gathering together for a People's Movement Assembly on Saturday, May 8th. This local gathering will:

  • Bring people together in an effort to promote collaboration and collective action between different struggles,
    • Identify some of our common solutions to the economic and ecological crisis that we are facing today,
    • Provide structure to discussions about what we want represented in Detroit at the larger Forum.

We need YOU! At the People's Movement Assembly in Portland we hope to have a broad representation of grassroots-committed, people-driven groups helping to create a list of proposed resolutions for the larger national movement to consider, incorporate and activate. Will you be there?
