Musicians Union Local 99
Houseless people and low income tenants are frontline communities bearing the brunt of the skyrocketing drive for profit in the Portland housing market. Harassed by the police and slumlords, these communities are organizing resistance and YOU can help.
Right 2 Surivive, Portland Tenants United, and Portland Rising Tide are forming a Rapid Response Network to support people when they or their homes are under attack. When we learn to mobilize and can respond to this harrasment we will show the world what solidarity looks like.
TEXT @sweep911 to 23559 to join the network and recieve text message updates about where the most recent sweeps and evictions are going on and how you can support.
JOIN/ATTEND the new RAPID RESPONSE NETWORK Training and learn:
**** HOW TO UTILIZE THE CELLY SYSTEM
**** LIVESTREAM TECHNIQUES TO RECORD THE ACTION IN REALTIME
****KNOW YOUR RIGHTS BASICS FOR ARREST AND SWEEP SCENARIOS
****TENANTS RIGHTS 101
****DIRECT ACTION TRAINING FOR RAPID RESPONSE SITUATIONS
