Reclaim and Celebrate Armistice Day
(aka Veterans Day) as a Day of Peace with Veterans For Peace Chapter 72 at Pioneer Courthouse Square @ 701 SW 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97205

Veterans For Peace has taken the lead in lifting up the original intention of November 11th—as a day for peace. As veterans, we know that a day that celebrates peace, not war, is the best way to honor the sacrifices of veterans. We want generations after us to never know the destruction war has wrought on people and the earth.

1 dollar is slavery no matter how you slice it!

Modern Day Slaves!!! 10/7/2017

There seems to be a concept in corrections that we can use our inmate population as slaves. Inmates are excluded from coverage under Oregon's minimum wage laws and that creates an opportunity for evil people to pay them 1 dollar a day for 8 hrs work. It gets worse, the State of Washington is suing a corporation who runs 40 immigration detention centers, at least one being in their state because the corporation is doing the same thing, paying their charges 1 dollar per day. I testified, not just once, but a number of times at the Multnomah County Board Meetings against this and told Sheriff Mike Reese that he was a "Fascist Punk" for sending crews out to clean up homeless/houseless camps and paying them 1 dollar a day. He may be on legal ground, that is up to the courts, but not on moral grounds and I need help fighting this injustice. The local news media are too stupid or just can't take this issue on for some reason. Can I get a yell from you that says "No Slave Labor in Multnomah County?" Can anyone help us fight this by taking direct action against this abomination?

Below are our comments on four Directives posted for review in late June
<  http://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/59757>.

Our comments on the Force-related Directives are pending, but we have asked for more time on those and hope our request will be granted. We once again had to spend considerable time reviewing these Directives to see what was changed, made all the more challenging by the fact that "First Universal Review" are posted as text and "Second Universal Review" are posted as PDFs, making conversion to text and comparison challenging to say the least.

We are children of darkness and/or victims of state failure and market failure. Shriveling the financial sector and expanding the public sector are lessons from the 2008 financial meltdown. All personal and corporate success is based on state investments in schools, libraries, hospitals, roads, airwaves, food safety, and water quality. This letter was sent on July 21, 2017 with no response.

Dear Mayor Wheeler and Portland Commissioners,
Someone on Oregonlive.com said Portland rents have doubled in the last 5 years. To me, this is prima facia evidence we are children of darkness. Is there a right to turn housing into a speculative pot of gold? [...]

The state should protect the social peace. Nevertheless, the neoliberal regime only protects owners and capital. I am translating a German article from Freitag.de that grapples with the rising rents in Berlin and ways out of the crisis.
