Ukraine has recently shocked the world with a massive wave of pro-European protests. People from all over Ukraine came out to the central squares of their cities, showing their support for Ukraine to sign a treaty with Europe. The reason behind the protests stemmed from this: Ukraine, with its President Yanukovich, has been preparing to sign an association-economic treaty with the European Union on the 28th of November. On November 21st, the government made a swift turn and announced that they would not sign the treaty and will start negotiating with Russia instead. This led to over 100,000 Ukrainian people on the streets, protesting. On the night of November 30th at 4:00 AM, the president sent in special forces (Berkyt) who attacked the protestors – mostly students, who were staying overnight at the square. Over 150 people ended up in hospitals, 25 people disappeared, and over 700 people were beaten up that night by the police. The following Sunday, over 1 million Ukrainians flocked to the streets of the capital to request the resignation of the president and prime minister, and to form a new government which would sign the agreement with the European Union. Further protests around the country have been going on in Ukraine to this day. We in Portland, Oregon, would like to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine in their strive for a better future and life. Also, please pray for the protesters that were brutally beaten on the night of November 30th. If you can, please bring Ukrainian - American flags, banners, and posters to the public gathering. Media (TV, newspapers) will be present. День солідарності з Українцями на Євромайданах у Портланд, Орегон. http://www.facebook.com/events/764099503604941/

Kick off 2014 with big ideas and Pizza! Portland has done a terrific job building east-west routes throughout its inner-east side. North-south routes, however, tend to be full of difficult crossings and frustrating twists and turns. As part of The Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s Blueprint for World Class Bicycling, we identified NE 7th and SE 9th as a key Neighborhood Greenway. On this year’s New Years Day Ride, we will ride the length of this route and stop along the way to point out exciting developments both new and upcoming. This year our ride will conclude at Old Town Brewing Co. on NE MLK Jr. Blvd. Old Town generously sponsors our Project Advisory Council and will be providing some free pizzas for riders! Want a deal on beer? Be sure to bring your BTA membership card! We’ll have a midway stop at the headquarters of B-Line Sustainable Urban Delivery, a local company devoted to urban delivery by electric-assist tricycles. There we’ll enjoy some coffee donated and brewed by one of their clients, Portland Roasting Coffee. So: bring a friend, some warm clothes, a few bucks to donate to the BTA, and your imagination as we explore an exciting future bikeway. The ride is approximately 9 miles and will not be a loop. http://www.facebook.com/events/224036477775463/
