Reds Without Beds – Occupy Portland’s Plan to Shut Down The Corporations


Gawd bless our revolutionary cousin’s over the pond. This is a great idea that I wish we’d thought of.

Occupy Portland calls for a national day of non-violent direct action to reclaim our voices and challenge our society’s obsession with profit and greed by shutting down the corporations.  We are rejecting a society that does not allow us control of our future. We will reclaim our ability to shape our world in a democratic, cooperative, just and sustainable direction.

We call on people to target corporations that are part of the American Legislative Exchange Council which is a prime example of the way corporations buy off legislators and craft legislation that serves the interests of corporations and not people. They used it to create the anti-labor legislation in Wisconsin and the racist bill SB 1070 in Arizona among so many others. They use ALEC to spread these corporate laws around the country. Read the full call to action here.

  1. What will they accomplish other than to seriously annoy and irritate people who are just trying to earn a living? Why do innocent citizens have to be disrespected and tormented by a bunch of inconsiderate troublemakers who are trying to attract attention? There are much better ways for them to accomplish their goals without harassing the innocent public.
