Why have dinner and a movie with Cory Booker and Jeff Merkley for $1000 when you can protest their support for the Gaza Massacre outside for free!

We call on Oregonians of conscience to come out in protest of the continuing support for the siege and massacre of Gaza by United States Senators.  We have an opportunity to confront both Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (and doubtless other key Oregon Democrats) for their vigorous support of Israel's current campaign of serial war crimes.

They say their event is about standing up to special interests! Well, that is why WE will protest them!

Protesters will begin gathering at 4:30pm in time for the 5:10pm $500/plate dinner and continue until the movie at 6:30pm.

Protest will start at:  Ya Hala at 8005 SE Stark St, Portland

Protest will continue at: Academy Theatre, 7818 SE Stark St, Portland

Perhaps Merkley and Booker will see us as dessert before the movie!

Hi all,
The situation is fluid but it looks like the Zim ship that was blocked from unloading in Oakland is coming to Tacoma Washington or maybe even Portland!

BLOCK THE BOAT TO GAZA was an amazing success in Oakland, and turned the boat around. Now we must follow it up the coast, thus BLOCK THE BOAT, TACOMA For now, get details from the original organizers ofBlock the Boat for Gaza

Friday, August 22at 8:00pm in CDT
Here is a link to information about the efforts to block the Zim ship coming to Tacoma to unload after leaving Oakland. This page will be updated as this situation changes by the hour:

The call is for folks to be there tomorrow afternoon and potentially ongoing.
Organizers have  heard that it may be possible that if they are not able to unload there, they may attempt to do so in Portland, but  they haven’t be able to verify that yet.

A Jewish graduate student at Harvard posting virulently anti-Semitic comments at various internet forums, allegedly “to gauge how pervasive anti-Semitism” is online, has been busted by the progressive website Common Dreams (CD).  

Investigative journalist Lance Tapley leaves few stones unturned in his report “The Double Identity of an ‘Anti-Semitic’ Commenter” except the identity of the culprit. “Let’s call the student Jason Beck”, Tapley says, protecting the perpetrator.
