We're immersed in two paradigms: the paradigm the corporate media shows us (good 'ol American competition Stands United With Us) and the one in which the media and the Transnationals actually function (the competition is Them vs. Us, Rich vs. Poor, the Elite vs. Everyone Else, Corporate Culture vs. All Life). --- There are two Portland meetings scheduled (10/26 and 10/30) to plan how to Exploit the Exposure and Expose the Exploitation that have occured in the Sept. 11 Disaster Aftermath.

The events of Genoa, and the entire agenda of the movement, have been moved off center-stage by the attacks and the US Government response to them.
