This New Year, Portland's Central Eastside stands at a crossroads. Much has happened, and all will be decided in THE NEXT THREE WEEKS.

Onward,
The Team from Onward Oregon

Around a couple dozen people met at 11 AM on Nov 11th in Directors park to recognize the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day at 11:11 AM.

[Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France at 5:45 am, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918]

Millions of adults and youth are incarcerated and detained in by the u.s. prison industrial complex, court system, house arrest, parole and juvenile system while the ruling elite capitalist class make gross profit on the oppression of others. This also includes political repression on those who speak out and and fight back. Hear about ongoing international and national political work to free Political Prisoners and smash the prison industrial complex.

We have not forgotten.

We remember Fouad Kaady. Thirteen years ago on september 8, Fouad was murdered by a cop from Sandy Oregon & a deputy from Clackamas County, in a disgusting display of cruelty. I remember especially Fouad's wonderful parents, sisters, & other relatives, who in their grief showed much care for us who simply vigiled with them. Peace & blessings to you, Kaady family. We'll not forget Fouad or you.

Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 7-9pm
Cider Riot! 807 NE Couch St Portland, Oregon 97232

German antifascist activists, with over 10 years experience, present the major strategies, struggles, and theories of the „Antifaschistische Aktion" from 1932 to the present.
History & Strategy of German Antifascism

The latest rise of fascist movements and parties has once again made it clear: organized antifascist resistance is necessary. In order to successfully intervene and stop fascism from spreading, it is useful to take a look at the different experiences built from movements in other countries. Particularly the history of the Antifa movement in Germany has to offer a lot of different approaches and experiences.
