Call to Action
Occupy Portland calls for a day of non-violent direct action to reclaim
our voices and challenge our society’s obsession with profit and greed
by shutting down the corporations. We are rejecting a society that does
not allow us control of our future. We will reclaim our ability to shape
our world in a democratic, cooperative, just and sustainable direction.
We call on the Occupy Movement and everyone seeking freedom and justice to join us in this day of action.
There has been a theft by the 1% of our democratic ability to shape and
form the society in which we live and our society is steered toward the
destructive pursuit of consumption, profit and greed at the expense of
We call on people to target corporations that are part of the American
Legislative Exchange Council which is a prime example of the way
corporations buy off legislators and craft legislation that serves the
interests of corporations and not people. They used it to create the
anti-labor legislation in Wisconsin and the racist bill SB 1070 in
Arizona among so many others. They use ALEC to spread these corporate laws around the country.
In doing this we begin to recreate our democracy. In doing this we begin
to create a society that is organized to meet human needs and sustain life.
On February 29th, we will reclaim our future from the 1%. We will shut
down the corporations and recreate our democracy.
Join us! Leap into action! Reclaim our future! Shut down the corporations!
