Action Details

Please join us on 12/12!
Meet up at 6 AM at Kelley Point Park!

We will rally and then head to the Port together!

It is important to arrive on time. We need to establish a strong presence before the morning shift is scheduled to begin. Kelley Point Park is located in the Saint Johns neighborhood and is accessible via the #16 Bus. If you ride the bus, you will need to walk or bike 0.7 miles from the N. Lombard and Simmons stop. Check trimet.org for details.

There will be a second opportunity to meet up at 4 PM at Kelley Point Park for those who cannot make it in the morning! However, it is crucial that we get as many people as possible for the morning shift!

Please consider biking or driving if you can. Folks with cars are encouraged to offer rides to others. Folks with bikes are encouraged to bike to the Port. We may need cyclists and drivers to travel to different parts of the Port in order to maximize our coverage.

We encourage folks to form affinity groups -- groups of friends who are committed to sticking together during the action. The Flying Squad Committee will coordinate with affinity groups to ensure that we have a presence at all key areas of the Port.

If possible, please e-mail flyingsquadcommittee@riseup.net to register your affinity group. Be prepared to share the name of your affinity group and one person’s contact information (a first name or alibi, phone number, and / or e-mail address is helpful).
