Today, approimately 25 protesters, and several innocent bystanders, were victims of gross descrimination by trimet employees.
Portland's large media outlet has at least one story that does not paint protesters in a bad light...
The folks at KGW are obviously Anti-Bush
We woulda got a lot more bang for our buck, if we could have bussed a couple of thousand protestors to the Descutes Fairground.

Welcome to the 2003 A21 Portland Confrontational!
Sandy Mayor Linda Malone becomes infuriated by Planning Commissioner Steel for his lone advocacy of sustainability for the town and its surrounding countryside.
Since I live downtown, everyday I watched street-kids getting cited for "loitering." I know from my circle of associates that these people have committed no crime whatsoever, but they are being cleaned out to make a more hospitable environment for shoppers, tourists, etc.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
House proposal caps OHP enrollment and cuts hospitalization from the plan. Senate proposal does not cap enrollment and requires consideration of premiums which are driving people off OHP.
I'm gonna get spelunker hats for some of our Democratic leaders because they are such excellent cavers. In Democratic politics these days leaders are determined by their ability to raise money: Their personal political philosophy, their ability to stick to principles while negotiating, are not requirements for the job.
OMSI's Hanford exhibit doesn't tell the whole story.
I dont like the idea of some big $$ rock band using our protest for their own self agrandizment.
Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about, but
Everything that is polluted, dull, wicked, foul, obnoxious, unjust, inhuman, self-absorbed, despotic, repressive, shit-stained, bloodsucking, hypocritical, fascist, dishonest, corrupt and criminal is summed up for us in that one word: BUSH!
The cruise ship of the hyper-wealthy arrive in Portland at the same time as (p)Resident Bu$h's fundraiser...such a coincidence!
I`m anoyyed that this band`s self-promoting rock video may wind up distracting attention away from our protest.
Brian Whitaker investigates whether the 'independent' media institute that translates the Arabic newspapers is quite what it seems
An advocacy of an alternative approach to the location and efforts of protesting the visit of POTUS.
I have felt from the very beginning that this UP lunch thing was just a SHAM -- something to draw us AWAY from where Bush really will be.
University of Portland is not really easy to get to.
Sheesh, it would be too bad if a lot of grannies driving really slow held up
all the Lexus and Mercedes and SUVs heading to UofP.
Impeachment is for liars: the Bush cartel criminals.
We know you guys will do an AMAZING job! I personally look forward to reposting info from here onto other sites as it comes in. Sf.indymedia has moved articles on the upcoming protests to the top of the Global News section every time they are posted.

Nature is best
Doug Mazen was killed at point blank a few days ago while photographing a notorious US ran prision in Baghdad.
He had phoned his wife the previous night to tell her that he had found out about a gravesite where the US was burying soldiers that would be simply reported as missing in action for a later day in order to keep the day-to-day body count low.
Please, if you plan on attending any of the Bush Welcome Wagon Festivities, inform your friends whether you will be using your name or not if arrested.
If you want to be heard by the pResident, you will need to make noise. Bring anything that makes lots of noise. Pots, pans, drums, trumpets, stereos... anything you can think of. Metal garbage cans make good drums I think.
This essay collects articles about the ATV-Trespass and Violence problem occurring in New York and throughout the United States and Canada, and about the way some landowners are lawfully resisting intrusions by ATV-trespassers.
Two days before resident Bush brings the GOP fundraiser machine to Oregon fires have broken out to the North and South of Camp Sherman in the Deschutes National Forest. This is the exact area Bush was supposed to tour and use to make his point that cutting down trees prevents forest fires. Do the fires point to possible arson by Bush operatives? Is this beyond the Bush regime?
Given the state of the world and the conflicts at hand, what we really need is education. We should educate the poor countries like Syria, Palestine, and Egypt. Further more I think that we here in the United States with our vast open area could help Israel out by offering free education and housing here in the United States for the people of Palestine. We should bring the people from these countries here so they can enjoy our ideologies and see what it is like to live in a country such as ours.
The Nazis extracted the fillings of its victims after being informed by Degussa that the company could refine it into marketable gold bullion. Degussa was awarded an
exclusive contract with the Nazis to refine all gold. The company was also joint owners with I.G. Farben of Degesch, a firm that produced Zyklon-B cyanide tablets
used in the gas chambers. Due to the hoard of gold fillings stacking up at Auschweitz, Degussa built a smelter there. The bullion was then shipped back to Berlin and
commingled with the Nazis gold stash. Undoubtedly some of it made its way back to the banker in charge of United Steel Works, Prescott Bush.
If the entire police force is in N. Portland protecting the pResident from the angry mobs...
What if I have to pee?
I don't understand hatred. I don't understand why people think that hatred is the answer. I don't understand why it is in this part of the country. I am so sad to see people who could use their valuable time healing and doing good works that in the eyes of our planetary existance is so direly needed instead destroy themselves and their neighbor's trust. No one changes in hatred.
"Consumers ultimately copy the advertising, competition and achievement society produced by politics and the media in their daily reality and see no possibilities any more for exodus from this money- and success pressure. The economically dominated reality has become self-referential. In Karl Polanyi's words, the market society is totalitarian." Translated from the German
There is a chance that Herr Bush will fake us out and not even show up at UofP. In which case.....we have to have a RESPONSE to his cowardice......
Forget the NE blackouts and forget the burning Iraq pipeline! Here are western intimations of the coming end of the petroleum age; Phoenix will be the first to go.
What is the state of the Portland protest spirit?

"The solar architecht Rolf Disch in Freiburg sold the first solar-energy-plus houses that produce more energy with the help of the sun than is consumed in these energy houses. Every homeowner becomes an energy-seller. Economy and ecology harmonize at last.. Money is earned with the solar roof. The sun doesn't send any bill. The solution to the energy- and climate problem is in the skies." Transl from German
Excerpted from "Big Lies."
Frustration with clicks and scenes when I thought we were trying to build something better
There have been other reports suggestive of a connection between child abuse and top officials. On June 29, 1989, the Washington Times, shook the Bush White House to its very roots with the front page headline "Call Boys Took Midnight Tour of White House.'' The paper reported, ``A homosexual prostitution ring is under investigation by federal and District authorities and includes among its clients key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, military officers, congressional aides and U.S. and foreign businessmen with close ties to Washington's political elite.''
William Blum, former State Department official and author of Rogue State , Killing Hope and West-Bloc Dissident and writing as guest columnist for www.YellowTimes.org , accuses the officials of the American Empire of making statements that pursue interests others than the clear presentation of reality.
Today's article is about an excursion to the Red Robin on NE Grand.
Is anyone focusing their propaganda efforts at those who live near UofP (to convince them to come and protest, or support the protesters), or the police (to convince them Bush is an International Terrorist, and to support him is treasonous and anti-american?).
I think once we get to our "free speech zone" and are protesting that we should break out in song: America the Beautiful. And everyone sing out loud.
Or......alternatively or in addition: sing God Bless America.
Activist is attempted to be driven away from PPRC rally for holding a sign that had one of the 60's classic statements.
Help me stop to stop censorship of freedom of Speech, and try and help the Peace and Justice movement learn that Love is the only thing that Conquers hate.
Ridiculous as sodomy laws may be, there clearly is no right to privacy nor sodomy found anywhere in the Constitution. There are, however, states' rights -- and Texas has the right to decide how to regulate sex using local standards.
The "market" is already demanding "incentives" for expanding the transmission grid, but it will only increase their reach leaving the rest of the country even more vulnerable to widespread power outages.
"The US has not learned from comparable situations in the past that `the best military victories cannot win the peace'. In his detailed study on the mistakes of the US - for example the belief that Saddam Hussein's overthrow alone would win the `hearts and minds' of the Iraqis -, Cordesman develops a series of scenarios on future developments in Iraq..The US at the end could wage a third Gulf war against the people
