Video: Save Portlands Open Reservoirs - Friday Vigils Start

Friday Vigils to Save Portland Open reservoirs starts on the Hawthorne Bridge every Friday at 4:00 PM
 http://youtu.be/o1hDMygYXUE [1 min video vigil announcement]

Organized by Individuals For Justice

Join us Friday on the Hawthorne Bridge west side

"Today [Friday] we will be back on the Hawthorne Bridge, Westside at 1st and Madison. We will have signs talking about the covering of the reservoirs and the rate increases etc. We should be there about 4:00 PM until about 5:15 PM, this wimp wears out fast on the bridge, but we make some noise and try to have fun. All are welcome and the only rule is be proud of what you put on your sign; no other rules. If you get a chance stop and say hello to a person who is living on the street, they are having a tough time and could use some cheer; just say Hi. That's all folks----"


Couldn't covered reservoirs help sheild the water from Fukushima radiation? 14.Aug.2013 10:25


Wouldn't covered reservoirs help shield the reservoirs' water from Fukushima's atmospherically released radiation, which would go exponential compared to present rates when the inevitable 7+Richter-scale earthquake hits the Fukushima area at some point within the coming few years, long before true 'containment' there is achieved?

I'm in full agreement with the other 'no covers' arguments, but covering one's water supply from radioactive fallout would seem to be an obvious precaution to take. Wouldn't have to be with all the bells and whistles proposed (burial, etc.), just some sort of basic cover.

Thoughts on this?

joe anybody iam@joeanybody.com

A week later 8/16 I stopped by the Hawthorne bridge at 4:00PM to ask a few questions about the Save Bull Run Water Vigil that was going on.

The Lone Vet and Roberto both filled me in on what is being planned for the Portland area water users and to their sparkling Bull Run Water Supply.

Tanks are now being built on Powell Butte to store all our pristine water that will then be mixed with well water from the Willamette and Columbia river at a jacked up price.

Mixed well water, radon in the water, and higher prices are just a few of the expressed concerns at the Friday weekly vigil.

The only legitimate grass roots group working to save the reservoirs is Friends of the Reservoirs. www.friendsofreservoirs.org

Both Joe Walsh and Anybody have a sleazy track record in the activist community that includes membership with groups supporting the Constitution Party. For those who don't know, the Constitution Party is what morphed out of the Oregon Citizen's Alliance when Lon Mabon and Mary Starrett decided they didn't want to look like cranks.


For years these clowns(Walsh and Anybody) have insinuated themselves in the alternative/anarchist communities. Anybody has this funny act where he claims to see government conspiracies and evidence of the "police state", then pretends he doesn't know what antisemitism is. Can't have it both ways, dude: you can't believe that 911 was an Inside Job and somehow not notice the people pushing that shit are Nazis loving fuckers.

One of these clowns was a admin at Portland Indymedia, so expect this comment to VANISH. Because free speech and transparency only matter if you're trying to bamboozle the masses. Heaven forbid the masses have all the information to make an informed choice./sarc

You have been warned.
