HANDS OFF VENEZUELA! ** Portland Rally Friday 2/8/19 Terry Shrunk Plaza 5PM

From the open publishing newswire: Join your community members at Terry Schrunk Plaza Portland this Friday at 5:00 pm to tell the US government HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!

No more military intervention in Latin America!

We cannot be silent in the face of the latest U.S. aggression against the Venezuelan people.

Nicolás Maduro is the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, chosen twice by the people as part of an internationally observed electoral process. Since the 1998 election of Hugo Chávez, the United States has been relentless in its pursuit of regime change in Venezuela. With Donald Trump in the White House, these efforts have escalated to threats of all-out military violence, the plundering of billions of dollars in wealth from the Venezuelan people and pushing a multitude of outrageous lies in the global media.

History & Strategy of German Antifascism

From the open publishing newswire: Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 7-9pm
Cider Riot! 807 NE Couch St Portland, Oregon 97232

German antifascist activists, with over 10 years experience, present the major strategies, struggles, and theories of the „Antifaschistische Aktion" from 1932 to the present.
History & Strategy of German Antifascism

The latest rise of fascist movements and parties has once again made it clear: organized antifascist resistance is necessary. In order to successfully intervene and stop fascism from spreading, it is useful to take a look at the different experiences built from movements in other countries. Particularly the history of the Antifa movement in Germany has to offer a lot of different approaches and experiences.

Portland Aug 4 Help Antifa Push Back Nazis

From the open publishing newswire: Resist Patriot Prayer: Violent Alt-Right Bigots Off Our Streets

Saturday August 4 at 11:30 AM
Tom McCall Waterfront Park Portland OR 97124

Patriot Prayer is bringing White Nationalists to Portland again. At their last event on June 30th they brought in out of state Alt Right celebrities and brawlers to create what was the most violent confrontation to date in Portland. It was a thinly veiled excuse to attack vulnerable communities and leftists. They want to send a send a message of intimidation to any and all people that oppose the fascist, totalitarian direction the US is currently headed in and swarming on progressive cities is part of that program. Patriot Prayer is bringing national Alt Right figures like Gavin McInnes and Alex Jones to our city. Our community must stand up and defend itself from Joey and his Alt Right goons.

History has shown that militant resistance is a necessary and important tool in the fight against fascism. We make no apologies for the use of force in keeping our communities safe from the scourge of right-wing violence. Make no mistake, these people are coming here with the intent to harm and threaten people. If you look at any of their forums they are filled with disturbing, Turner Diaries type fantasies of purges and cleansing the streets of those they seem undesirable. If you look at their year-long pattern of behavior there can be no confusion about their objectives. The genocidal ideas they espouse and their belligerent tactics should not be dignified with a debate. They need to be routed.
