Boycott! A strategy for winning...
This year the Democrats are going to lose but dissident voices can win. We have a new and powerful excuse to boycott the elections, fighting corporate power, but it has to be organized and an empowered boycott. This is a call against apathy, against the corporate political parties and for an empowered non-voter.

Preston The Multnomah County Animal Shelter is filled to over flowing, and a group of pit bulls will be killed soon unless you can help get them out. These are wonderful dogs. They really need a chance to live. Please go to the shelter and adopt or offer to foster one of these animals. Pit bulls are very social dogs who get very stressed out in shelters. They are famous for developing kennel stress, which is why at least one of these dogs is on the euth list. They are not doing well there because they need out.

This is not a space for the planning of events but rather it is an opportunity for projects to be announced, for proposals to be stated, for connections to be made, deepened and expanded. We intend to increase the level of joint activity, coordination, and face-to-face communication among already established anarchist networks.
