Occupy Portland is seeking the support of community members and our neighborhoods for which the occupy movement seeks to strengthen! The prestigious Bagdad Theater, is opening it’s doors Tuesday, November 8, for a silent auction, comedy show, and movie. This election night event will raise awareness and funds for needed supplies and park restoration on behalf of Occupy Portland!
The comedy headliners are Nato Green, Occupy SF “Laughter Against The Machine,” Dwight Slade “Best of US Comedy Arts Festival,” Auggie Smith, winner of both San Francisco & Seattle's International Comedy Competitions in 2010, and Arlo Stone, currently occupying pdx “Comedy Central.” Based on Howard Zinn's book, "A People's History of the United States," the documentary looks at America's struggles with war, class, race, and women's rights. On Tuesday, November 8th, we will have a silent auction starting at 6:30pm, followed by political comedy and the award winning film “The People Speak.”

Occupy Portland started October 5th, 2011 as a peaceful solidarity rally for the Occupy Wall Street movement. We are now one of thousands of cities internationally participating in an effort to get the peoples' voices heard. We are hard at work like you, creating intentional communities for us all and strengthening neighborhoods at the expense of corporate scope and influence. We are the 99%, and together we can make a difference!
Please contact Daniella Marchick or Arlo Stone at email@example.com for additional information or to schedule a time to pick up a donation.
Thanks in advance for your support and help!
Occupiers & the 99%
