Goose Hollow Neighborhood Association Meeting Notes

Michelle, a key leader in Multnomah Libertarians sends notes from the recent Goose Hollow Neighborhood Association meeting. There was approx 6 gun shots on the evening of Oct 19th off SW Montgomery and 13th around 10pm and neighbors called 911 in response. Commissioner Mingus Mapps is proposing to hire 300+ more officers. They're having a vote on the budget in November. Apparently there's a monetary "surplus" in the budget. Also 911 (and non-emergency) lines are so overwhelmed that the line will disconnect (on the non-emergency lines) However, it's like they're encouraging the homeless to stay here. They are going to purchase bins to dispose of dirty needles with their funding via bottle returns (blue bags for bottle drop) And "outside in" is actually giving away needles. And there's 108 tents in the Goose Hollow area (they do a monthly count). They also want to use their bottle drop funds to one way transfer homeless to warming shelters, hospi

Pearl District Neighborhood Association Meeting Notes

The full list of sponsors for HB2928 online:  https://olis. 2021R1/Measures/Overview/ HB2928 This measure pretty much takes away most forms of crowd control which is why Portland police stood down when the proud boys were fighting antifa last month in the parkrose area. And also why they didn't do anything when there were riots in the Pearl on Saturday night. They're trying to approve a measure to have LE wear body cams. There were a couple of LEOs that were invited during the chat. I forgot what they said was holding up that measure. (For me it's a win-win. Not only would it protect citizens from crooked cops. But could protect cops from assholes accusing them of misconduct. As some statists like to say "why do you mind being monitored I'd you're not doing anything wrong?" Also, There is a rumor that they are going to turn the post office into a safe rest village

A letter to organizers of Black Lives Matter Oregon

Greetings, and please consider my sincere gratitude for all your hard work fighting systemic racism in Oregon. Chivona Newsome, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Greater NY has recently come out against covid vaccine mandates in NYC. She says people of color are being disproportionately asked to provide their proof of vaccination over their white counterparts. I agree with this because not unlike the war on drugs, racist people in positions of power use laws like this to discriminate and oppress people of color. My faction of the Libertarian Party of Oregon (The Mises Caucus) agrees with all of this, and is vehemently opposed to covid vaccine mandates. Despite the corporate media trying to divide us types of activists against each other, we share a lot of the same views on police oppression and other issues. Regardless of vaccination status, I believe we should all be fearful of being required to provide this information in order to eat at a restaurant, go to the grocery store, or eve
