    Nonprofit seeks collaborators to crowdfund development of tools for activists and scientists
    Pioneer Square

    When you have a problem, you want to know what all your options are, not just whatever Google decides to show you. That's why we want to build a wiki for all solutions to all problems, in all areas of human life. The idea is to perfect the process of discussion itself, then use it to improve anything.

    So if you're in Portland and want to plug in, all you got to do is type in "Portland Or." and you get a list of all the problems in there.

    From there you click on one and get a list of all the ideas anyone's had for how to solve it, or at least make it better.

    Then there's debate tools and other things that take a few minutes to explain so we made graphics and a few short videos and posted them on our predevelopment site Needpedia.com

    This will be a community owned and operated network, there will be zero corporate or government funding. Furthermore the discussions which center around Needpedia and all the ideas for how to improve it, will be decided by the community. Everything will be transparent, crowdsourced, and publicly funded. This is great because it ensures we will always serve the public, (no electoral colleges here), but it means we need help getting off the ground. Once the tools are online it should be as easy as maintaining Wikipedia, but for now we reallly need your help crowdfunding, producing art and other content, promoting, and/or programming. Any contribution helps, big or small. (even the small ones show the folks considering bigger contributions that other people care, it really does all add up).

    Thanks for reading, please feel free to ask us anything you'd like, and to also let us know of any resources or individuals we might be able to contact for support.

  • Meet "Antifa Comic Book" Author Gord Hill aka Zig Zag

    A talk by Gord Hill the author of the recently released graphic novel, The Antifa Comic Book: 100 Years of Fascism and Antifa Movements. 

    About the author: Gord Hill is a member of the Kwakwaka'wakw nation from what is now called the BC region and a writer, artist, and avowed anticolonialist/anticapitalist. He commonly adopts the name Zig Zag. 

    His website is https://warriorpublications.wordpress.com/about/

    His newest work is called The Antifa Comic Book published by Arsenal Pulp Press. http://www.arsenalpulp.com/bookinfo.php?index=483

    About the book: The shocking images of neo-Nazis marching in Charlottesville, North Carolina in the summer of 2017 linger in the mind, but so do those of the passionate protestors who risked their lives to do the right thing. In this stirring graphic non-fiction book by the acclaimed author of The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book, Gord Hill looks at the history of fascism over the last 100 years, and the concurrent antifa movements that work fastidiously to topple it.

    Fascism is a relatively new political ideology and movement, yet in its short history some of the greatest atrocities against humanity have been carried out in its name. Its poisonous roots have taken hold in every region of the world, from its beginnings in post-World War I Italy, through Nazi Germany, Franco’s Spain, and the KKK in America. And today, emboldened by the American president, fascism is alive and well again. At the same time, antifa activists have proven, through history and again today, that the spirit of resistance is alive and well, and necessary.

    In The Antifa Comic Book, Gord Hill documents these powerful moments of conflict and confrontation with a perceptive eye and a powerful sense of resolve.

    Childcare will be provided Hosted by: Rose City Antifa https://www.rosecityantifa.org/

  • Boo ICE

    Boo ICE

    We are creating space this Halloween at Holladay Park with a festive hang out space to educate communities of the Lloyd District about immigration policies and the abuses of I.C.E.

    We firmly believe I.C.E. should be abolished because any organization that exploits asylum seekers, does Irreparable harm onto children and forcibly separates families doesn't have the right to exercise power. Abolish I.C.E.!

    Expect an information table, some educational workshops and food!

    Dress for the occasion!

    Use MAX to arrive!

    Good parking is available in the close vicinity!

    Whose park!

    Expect more updates!
