These are the points of unity which are guiding the events on October 6/7:

Occupy Portland, Not Afghanistan

--Money for Jobs, Education, Health Care, Housing and the Environment, Not War
-----> Bring the jobs back to the US
-----> Affordable education, health care and housing for all
-----> Cut fossil fuels, stop climate change

--End the Wars and Military Occupations--No Nukes, No Drones
-----> Bring all the troops home and give them care
-----> War enriches the 1% and decimates the 99%
-----> Self-determination for the Middle East*

--Restore Constitutional Rights
-----> Repeal the PATRIOT Act and End indefinite detentions
-----> Close Guantanamo
-----> Stop the war on immigrants

--Main Street, Not Wall Street -- Power to the People
