    The General Assembly is the completely participatory and non-hierarchical governing body that the Occupy Movement has embraced for decision making. We believe everyone deserves to have a fair say in the direction of our collective lives. Everyone is invited to participate in making decisions based on proposals that are presented. Everyone is welcome to bring proposals as well. Please visit the “How to bring a proposal” page.

Every Wednesday!  Show up at City Hall at 9am to protest the addition of Fluoride to our water.  The council has voted to fluoridate our water in spite of serious health concerns and organized opposition.  Show up to let them know we do not appreciate this forced medication.  Bring signs!

        Night Strike is a unique opportunity for people to gather under the Burnside Bridge on the park side of Naito Parkway every Thursday night and love people because people matter. It’s an opportunity for members of Portland’s homeless community to hang out, enjoy a hot meal, receive a free hair cut, shave, have their feet washed and have their old shoes/clothes/sleeping bags replaced. It is also a chance for you to come down and share in the experience, help serve the needs of the homeless in our community, and more importantly, invest in lives and build relations with the people you meet.

        When and Where:
        We meet *every Thursday night at 7:00pm at Liberation Street Church for orientation and preparation. We then transition together to the site at 7:50pm. We are usually done and cleaned up between 10:00 and 10:30pm. The best place to park is in the parking lot between the Salvation Army mission and the MAX line on Ankeny St. Parking there costs $2 for the evening. Street parking free after 7pm.

  • With the economy still in recession, the banks are still up to their old tricks. They are still foreclosing on families, still ripping us off and still controlling government. We need to put a stop to this!! We need to be talking to people and small businesses about moving their money!!  Every Friday from noon - 6pm, we will do an action at a different bank.    Dust off that old "Banks Got Bailed Out" sign and join the revolution!!

  • PLEASE JOIN US to protest drones, hear about current progress with drone activism, and begin continuing conversations about drones in "Portland's living room."
    This meeting will begin our weekly vigil in the Square.

    Come to discuss with us and others the truth about drone casualties in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan; to honor the victims of drones, and help us raise awareness about drones.
