THEY HAVE GONE MAD...https://www.facebook.com/groups/occupypdx/permalink/597190630291264/ [posted on Face Book 4.15.13]
There will be a demonstration outside of City Hall on the 17th concerning their attempt to fund the continuation of the stalling crap on your case with Mr. Smith.
I will request that the item to be taken out of the consent agenda and that way we will be able to testify. I don't know if anyone from the office will be there but acting for Individuals For Justice, I will make a very angry statement. Dan from Copwatch can not be there, but will send it a written request, He asked me to be present, which I can do. Let me know what your thoughts are but also understand this is an issue we have been fighting against. Not sure how many people I can get, but will try my best.
Handout for protest:
“Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Every morning we wake up is the first day of the rest of our life.”
Portland City Council has gone mad, they want to appeal a jury verdict who awarded a young man who was pepper-sprayed, “tased,” beaten and punched in the face. His offense, he asked Portland Police why he was being ordered away from a club he was returning to after coming outside. The JURY heard the case and said they did not believe the cops and awarded the verdict in the man’s favor.
After months of stalling, the city wants to appeal this case, they have gone mad.
Individuals For Justice will yell as loud as we can to stop this waste of your money. Any fine, interest and penalties will come out of the General Fund. They are cutting jobs, they are laying off people and they will and have cut programs for kids because they have a short fall in the General Fund , yet they want to spend more money and they will lose and pay more than 9% interest and maybe 10% in penalties.
We will testify against this on Wednesday, April 17 at city hall at 0930 or when they call up the item to pay for the appeal. We are asking you to come and if you cannot attend call the City Council and ask them “Have you gone completely mad?”

An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.
Thoreau may have also brooded over the reaction of Emerson, who criticized the imprisonment as pointless. According to some accounts, Emerson visited Thoreau in jail and asked, “Henry, what are you doing in there?” Thoreau replied, “Waldo, the question is what are you doing out there?”
