Taking Action Against the TPP, TAFTA and TISA
Informing and energizing the public
Join the Alliance for Democracy in Portland for twice a week banner and sign holding. We will gather on Tuesdays and Fridays at different bridge heads or major street intersections to spread the word that the TPP and Fast Track Authority are coming at them fast and that we need to rise our voices.
Until further notice, our actions will be on Tuesday and Fridays. On Tuesdays, we start at 2:30 PM. On Fridays, we start at 4 PM.
Location: East end of the Burnside Bridge where Wentworh Subaru is.
What to bring: We will have the banner (as above) plus a few signs.
Each week I will send an email reminder out with locations. To join the list, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
