    Water Protectors - Part 1: A Call For Support

    We Have Not Forgotten You: WATER PROTECTORS Part 1: A Call For Support

    We are bombarded by media. News of school shootings, atrocities against humanity, and environmental catastrophe can be overwhelming. Sometimes it seems there’s no way to help. As a society we must not accept this as truth.

    Last year the Dakota access pipeline was imposed on Native lands and threatened sacred water. Many people came from all walks of life to stand in solidarity and join their native communities to protect sacred lands, our life force, and all future generations.

    I have heard people say “Standing Rock is over” this is not true, especially for the people who gave up their livelihood and left their communities and familes to offer themselves to defend what they knew in their hearts to be a just cause. They faced brutalized police force, harsh weather conditions, and inprisionment. Many are suffering from PTSD. Some are in prison. Some must travel back there to defend themselves in our judicial system. When a soldier returns from war there are organizations and services that help support and honor them. We must rise up as a collective community and be that support system for these water protectors. With our actions we must show them that they are not forgotten.

    This first event will focus on supporting 8 water protectors as they struggle with travel fees to attend their court dates. It will also fund care packages for those who are in prison.

    There will be a slideshow presentation, a speech from Candi Brings Plenty, music, and an art sale. The space seats about 30 plus standing room.

    Please give priority to children, elders, and alter abled persons!

    $8 suggested donation No one will be turned away

    Can’t make it? Stay tuned as “In Solidarity We Stand” continues to support Native communities, Black communities, People of Color, Immigrants, People Living in Poverty, Animals, and our Earth Mother.

    Want to contribute? Ideas for future concerts? Media coverage? Photos or video to document the event? Art for donation? Your musical talents? Please put “In Solidarity We Stand” in the subject line and contact Megan Martinez via email: Megtinez@gmail.com

    Surviving to Change The World and Climate Change

    How do we build a regional network of trained radicals in each city of the NW, capable of responding to environmental disasters and other calls to action, before the call even needs to go out?

    That is the question we will be asking at this event.

    $5-10 suggested donation, NOTAFLOF (No One Turned Away For Lack Of Funds) like all Anarres events

    Hosted by Antonio Zamora (http://www.backbonecampaign.org/antonio)

    This event is broken into two general parts.

    The first half of this event, Antonio will be using a slide show presentation to discuss principles, tactics and bunch of other stuff about how to stay active in the fight for social justice action, direct action and organizing to make a better world possible. During and after his slideshow, group discussion is allowed and encouraged.

    The second half of this event will be socializing, small group discussions, and food!

    Antonio has many real world experiences struggling to stay active in making another world possible and participating in the fight for social/environmental change since when he was living in the streets. Tons of wisdom to share. See his story and what he has supported in the past by visiting his community supported organizer web page - http://www.backbonecampaign.org/antonio

    No Borders: Social Struggles Across the World Screening

    Join Black Rose / Rosa Negra - Portland for a screening and discussion of 3 episodes from "No Borders: Social Struggles Across the World" (Sin Fronteras, La Lucha Social a Través del Mundo), directed and filmed by members of the Chile-based anarchist media collective Sur Negro Comunicaciones.

    “No Borders, Social Struggles Across the World (Sin Fronteras, La Lucha social a través del Mundo), is a web series presenting experiences of social organizations and anti-capitalist resistance in different regions of the world. Its special focus lies on anti-authoritarian practices within social movements.

    Sur Negro Comunicaciones, founded in 2014 in Santiago, Chile, "is an international anarchist organization of communication and propaganda dedicated to [visualizing] the social, ecologist, indigenous, labor, student and feminist struggles in their different expressions all around the world as well as the anti-authoritarian practices they apply. We seek to widen the horizon of the audiovisual languages that are commonly used by a diverse variety of political tendencies in the information and communication trenches. Sur Negro Comunicaciones preserves the line of “journalism in the trenches”, proposing a subjective narrative, typical of an explicit political stance on observed reality.

    All ages // no alcohol // on-site childcare if needed // wheelchair accessible*
    $5-$10 sliding scale donations. No one turned away for lack of funds!
    All money raised from this event will be donated to Sur Negro Comunicaciones to support the completion of future episodes.

    Solidarity with PNW Forest Defenders! Benefit Show and Talk (Demand Utopia)

    Come on out and hear some music and words of resistance from active eco-defenders in the Northwest!

    Line up:

    • Rat Heaven
    • Ben Martens
    • More TBA

    Talk from members of Cascadia Forest Defenders who are actively resisting the Goose Timber Sale outside of Eugene.

    "LANE COUNTY OREGON: Logging has begun at the Goose Timber Sale in the Willamette National Forest north of McKenzie Bridge and Highway 126. The Cascadia Forest Defenders (CFD) have maintained a tree sit protest inside the Goose Timber Sale since late May and CFD first observed evidence of logging on Tuesday October 17th.

    The Forest Defender tree sit was searched and extensively photographed Wednesday October 18th by Lane County Sherriff’s Deputies and Forest Service Officers with a promise to “see you tomorrow”, says one Forest Defender. This is the first contact CFD has had with law enforcement since the tree sit protest began six months ago.

    Cascadia Forest Defenders are making a general call to action to all activists and organizers in the Pacific Northwest to help stop the Goose Timber Sale. CFD will maintain a presence inside the Goose Timber Sale that will force Seneca Jones Timber Company and the U.S. Forest Service to abandon logging of public lands.

    The Cascadia Forest Defenders are committed to ending logging on all Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Services public lands. In the spirit of legendary American naturalist Edward O. Wilson, CFD wishes to keep half of Oregon wild, just as E.O. Wilson believes half of Earth must remain wild to maintain a livable biosphere. The Goose Timber Sale borders the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest and has a high concentration of mountain springs that feed the McKenzie River. The McKenzie River is the primary water source for Eugene/Springfield and a crucial Bull Trout habitat.

    “This action is not just about saving ancient forests or the McKenzie River, it’s about preventing human extinction and all the suffering to come,” says veteran activist Shannon Wilson."

    Anarchist Reading Group: Radical Pedagogy

    This is the fourth meeting of the Portland Anarchist Reading Group, a monthly(ish) book club based around radical anarchist literature aimed at buliding our understanding of revolutionary struggle.

    This meeting we will be discussing anarchist approaches to pedagogy, (un)schooling, learning and other educational ventures. We will talk about what the purpose of today's public schools is, how anarchists should interact with the educational establishment, how or if an anarchist school could be designed and any other topics that come up.

    The readings to accompny this weeks discussion are Emma Goldman's "The Social Importance of the Modern School" as well as "Anarchism, the State and the Role of Education" by Justin Mueller, included in the anthology "Anarchist Pedagogies" by Robert Haworth. Other texts that one might find helpful include the other essays in "Anarchist Pedagogies," "The False Principle of Our Education" by Max Stirner and "Pedagogy of the Opressed" by Paulo Freire. Please post any other reading reccomendations in the discussion.

    PDF's for each of the texts can be found at these links:

    The Social Importance of the Modern School: http://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/emma-goldman-the-social-importance-of-the-modern-school.pdf

    Anarchism, the State and the Role of Education (pages 14-31): http://rebels-library.org/files/anarchistpedagogies.pdf

    You can also come pick up a paper copy of each essay from Anarres during our open hours 12-6 Fri-Sun.
