Feel free to spread this information (not to cops, to people). There is a counter-protest planned today for the Nazi Rally. People are meeting between 12pm and 1pm across the street from Holt Elementary
on Harlow Road in Springfield.

The counter-protest is being held because Joey Gibson and other violent white supremacists have planned anAmerican Agenda White Supremacist rally at an Elementary school in our town. When these rallies and meetings are held in Portland incidents of violence in the community increase dramatically (i won't recount the stories because they are gut churning). We want to show them that this is not okay in our town. "Not In Our Town!"

If you want, please bring anti-hate signs, flags of all types (queer flag, anarchist flag etc), stink bombs, cameras, self protection and whatever else you want (nothing needed). You do not need to check-in with anyone, we need bodies, please show up.

This counter-protest poses a higher risk for children, people of color, non-passing queers and others who are targeted by the Nazi parties. Please only attend if you feel comfortable doing so. ... See MoreSee Less

Our senators and a list of others introduced this act together yesterday. Our State of Oregon passed permanent legislation this year as well.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Oregon’s U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden on Thursday joined colleagues in introducing the West Coast Ocean Protection Act to permanently ban offshore drilling in federal waters off the coast of Oregon, Washington and California.

Last year, the Trump administration released its five-year offshore leasing plan that proposed opening up the entire West Coast to new drilling despite widespread opposition in Pacific coast states. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt said last month that the Trump administration was suspending its plan indefinitely after several legal setbacks in the courts.

“I have countless precious memories of spending time on the coast with my family, and I know other Oregonians and millions of visitors have the same,” Merkley said. “This bill protects our fishing industry, our economy, our recreation, and the future of the Oregon Coast. I’ll keep fighting to protect all of our federal waters from further offshore drilling, and make sure we're investing in a clean, renewable future.”

“Oregonians treasure our coast for both its unmatched beauty and as an economic engine for tourism, fishing and more,” Wyden said. “This legislation would protect our invaluable coastline by ensuring oil derricks don’t start mushrooming on the horizon of the Pacific as one more scheme by Donald Trump to fatten the pockets of oil and gas industry executives.”

The Oregon Legislature this session made permanent the moratorium of oil and gas exploration off of Oregon’s coast.

No new offshore drilling has been allowed in federal waters along the Pacific Coast since 1984. The West Coast Ocean Protection Act would permanently protect these waters that are essential to coastal economies and healthy marine ecosystems.

The legislation is cosponsored by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Gary Peters (D-Mich.).

At our April 9th Tuesday Rally, we addressed the need to: #ReleaseTrumpsTaxes,
#ReleaseTheMuellerReport &
#SupportTheWhistleblowers.

We ask that you continue to call your members of Congress about those issues, as well as the blatant dismantling of the Homeland Services Department in response to the border issues, including separating parents from their children.

Here are a few pictures by Merry Caston and Gabe Raviolo. ... See MoreSee Less

Legislative Update: HB 2618 which would create a state rebate for roof top solar has passed out of the Energy and Environment committee and now goes to Ways and Means for funding. Lane County legislators on the committee include Senators Beyer and Manning, and Rep Holvey is co-chair. HB2020 aka The Clean Energy Jobs Bill is great and we support that too, but this bill gives direct support to those green energy jobs we need right now. We'll post contact info and call scripts in the comments. Reminder: If you text the word "state" to 50409 resistbot makes it super easy to write to your state legislators and Governor Brown too! ...
