Does Dave Archer Vote? Tesla Coil Painter Tells us.
Famous Star Trek artist Dave Archer tells us the Best and Worst
Ryan Gaughan, a ten year employee of New Seasons, was fired on February 6th, 2012, allegedly over taking an extra scoop of rice and tofu on his lunch break.
A more plausible reason for termination of his employment lies with the fact that Ryan has been a long time workplace organizer, working for safer conditions and equitible pay scales for employees.
As a result of this unfair desisicion by management, members or Portland's wider community showed up on Valentine's Day in mass to support Ryan and show their displeasure with "the friendliest store in town."
On March 10th, New Seasons Market Workers’ Voice is calling for another rally dubbed “The Rally to Restore Friendliness.” The message is directed toward store management and company officials who are currently being investigated by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for firing a worker shortly after he and other coworkers presented to them a series of concerns regarding disciplinary practices, pay inequities, and the direction of the company.

On November 13th 2011 the people of Portland came out by the thousands and took to the streets to celebrate a growing culture of resistance and defend the Occupy Portland encampment from eviction by the popo.
Portland enters its third day of occupation with over 1000 people actively holding space at the Chapman Park Camp in downtown.
As preparations for the Portland Marathon continue, many are nervous about being fenced in and locked down from 4am till 4pm tomorrow.
Despite fears and lively debate and consensus making in the People's General Assembly, at times comprised of over 500 participants, the occupation is becoming more organized and spirits are high.
Occupy Portland is by far one of the largest and most vibrant occupations in the country-- would be occupiers take note!
This stupor-sized serving of Freedumb Fries is a comedy of terrors featuring Beyoncé home videos gone wrong, homeless camp ins at the the famous rose-petals-covering-horse-poop Rose Parade, the story of anti-war veteran Brian Willson, and an animated guide to counterinsurgency by a budding scholar.
