Occupy Portland moves to St Francis Church–A Visit

Occupy Portland has a home again, one with a roof and heat and a friendly landlord. They are at home in a large classroom at St Francis Church on SE 12th. Lots of assistance to get there including Kate Lore from the First Unitarian Church and Peace House (for the liability insurance) and, I hear, someone wonderful paying the rent.

I went down yesterday afternoon just as a meeting to discuss use of the space was winding up–a full circle with one or two grey heads and lots of positive energy. Only about half the library was there, more is in storage and will be brought over soon. While I was there Bill Boese showed up to bring the things he’d been storing for them. So many people supporting this effort. Everyone very busy moving in, cleaning things up, sorting, putting away, happy to have a home again.

As I was about to walk out the door I spotted a pile of bumper stickers on the chalk tray and asked if they were free. “We’d like a donation but you can take one [if you don’t have money].” Finally a way to show everyone your support of Occupy Portland!

Here’s a few shots I took–great signs and bulletin boards
