First Meeting of the New Year

Some time after 6:25 the weekly meeting of the Cascadia Chapter convened at Random Order Cafe yesterday, Thursday 7 January 2016.

Dave produced the Oregonian article discussing recent Albina Ministerial Alliance for Peace, Justice, and Police Reform press conference held on steps of City Hall. YIP pointed out a lower half of face in the picture illustrating the article, which was me, to Dave and Charlotte’s apparent surprise.

Dave further spoke of his experience with suits brought against the Bureau of Land Management regarding the handling of rural resources; he indicated interest exists for a Green Party chapter in his base of Longview, WA.

Herschel to inquire of Dan Handelman at Monday afternoon’s demonstration at 3:30 pm at east end of Hawthorne Bridge for the details of Portland police training held together with Israeli Defense Force personnel.

Charlotte joins the Green Party, pledges to remain decorative. Herschel provides the news of, and explains, Joe Walsh’s legal victory against the City (and its Mayor); but then, upon adjournment, the Oregonian article describing said victory was lying on the table, presumably contributed by (self-effacing) Dave and Charlotte.

Meeting adjourned at 8:15 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Michael Meo, secretary
