2011 Gathering @ Poet House in Bend, OR, October 29 & 30

It’s official, all events this year will be happening in downtown Bend, OR at The Poet House, 856 NW Bond St.  Click here for directions.  Here is the updated schedule.

Admission is free, but we still have some bills to pay, so here’s how to help…..

Buy food!  There will be food and refreshments available throughout the event, and proceeds will go towards compensating traveling speakers and renting our lovely venue.

Bring a sliding scale donation for the evening films, $5-10.  We’re all penny-pinching right now, but if you have a bit to spare, it will really help.

Check out this nice media bit!  Free Cascadia!  End the Occupation!  See you all at the barricades!

It’s On! October 29 & 30

Hey Folks, all apologies for the lack of moving and shaking in the organizer camp lately, but I think we pulled it off.  Yes, financial crisis.  Yes, the comets are messing with my head.  Yes, this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for!  It’s time to put Cascadia on the map of the falling sky.  I’ll have final information up in a few days, venue, schedule, and all.  Lack of promotion has been no small mishap, but the world is going to change in the next two weeks, so we’ll ride that wave.  Alas, you can’t cheat karma, or anything else anymore.

Upcoming Benefit Events

Sunday August 7th; 9 PM at the Horned Hand in Bend (Colorado & Lava).

We will be showing The Coconut Revolution: a multi-award winning film about the indigenous people’s struggle in Bougainville Island.  The movement is described as “the world’s first successful eco-revolution.”

Please bring a donation ($3-5 suggested) as this is a benefit to pay for our venue, theater, & speakers for the conference.  The time to LOCALIZE is NOW!  Your support makes gatherings like this possible.  No one will be turned away for lack of funds, and it’s a good film so don’t miss it.

Stay tuned for more benefit events in the future!  Yes there will be dancing at this revolution!
