Droves of people with no jobs will put down the video game controllers, get off the couch and in full bravado declare they’re conducting a “General Strike.”
Tomorrow’s celebration of anarchistic excess will feature an unpermitted (natch) take over of the streets near Terry Schrunk Plaza called, ahem, “Roads are for Revelry.” The organizer/s of the event miss.sarah.andrea.amy@****.com” promise an “OMG big surprise at noon!”
The only thing these folks could do to surprise me is get a permit.
Governor Do Over: John Kitzhaber will headline a “let’s give illegal aliens driver’s licenses to show how unbelievably stupid we are” rally in Salem on the steps of the capitol. Pandering will be in plentiful supply. See nearby post.
Back in Portland from from 2-5pm, Occupiers, illegal aliens, students (who plan to storm the School Board meeting for inexplicable reasons) and other folks plan to hit the streets for a “General Strike,” read, stop traffic in downtown Portland to punish the people who are subsidizing their welfare checks.
They’ll start at O’Bryant Park, aka Paranoia Park, where they’ll march for and end to crony capitalism and not making enough money and “ongoing attacks on people..and our right to organize.”
What, are the Occupiers now seeking to organize their–rock throwers or molotov cocktail makers or professional screamers?
Our response to this onslaught against humanity is to organize and FIGHT BACK!! People Over Profit!!
Wow, thanks for that. It would appear that Occupiers are “fighting back” against all the people who are just trying to get through a day filled with a job they’re grateful to have and want to get home to their kids. That’s speaking truth to power. What’s that you ask? That’s the sound of one hand clapping.
I’d be more impressed if they actually held the man they voted for accountable for the horrid decisions which made what could have been an 18 month long recession into five years and counting. I’m not holding my breath, though.
