Portland’s annual Hempstalk Harvest Festival in Portland, Oregon advocates decriminalization of marijuana for medicinal, industrial, and recreational use. Founded in 2005 by The Hemp and Cannabis Foundation, the festival takes place on October 17-18, and features food vendors, live music, guest speakers and information booths. This public event has always been free to attend, with a suggested donation of $10 per person. According to Paul Stanford, founder and presenting sponsor of the event, “Hempstalk is about the many uses of agricultural hemp fiber, oil, protein, fuel and medicine. We are working to end adult cannabis prohibition, allow adults to grow their own and license the legal sale of psychoactive cannabis to adults. We believe that hemp will save the Earth’s biosphere with the adoption of hemp seed for bio-diesel fuel, which will solve the energy and world hunger problems, and stop deforestation when hemp fiber is used for paper and building materials. We shall overcome!” http://hempstalk.org/site/about/#sthash.sy5qyzzp.dpuf Saturday, October 17 11:00am - Opening Ceremonies 11:10am - Music: John Cornett & Friends 11:45am - Ngaio Bealum, Emcee, Comedy 12:00pm- Music: Wild Rumpus Band 12:40pm - Bradley Steinman, Green Business Law LLC 12:45pm - Mindi Griffiths, Freedom Fighter 12:50pm - Doug McVay, Drug War Facts 1:00pm - Music: Disenchanter 1:40pm - HEMPOSIUM LEGAL PANEL (Understanding the Law) Leland Berger, Paul Loney, John Lucy IV, Ann Witte 1:40pm - Anthony Taylor, Compassionate Oregon 1:45pm -Joy Beckerman, Hemp Ace 1:50pm - Scott Gordon, Urb Thrasher Flower Hour/420 Radio/Portland NORML 2:00pm - Music: Devils Hunt Me Down (CaviGold Records) 2:10pm - HEMPOSIUM GROW PANEL Wolf Segal, Dru West 2:40p- Anna Diaz, Parents 4 Pot 2:45pm- Speaker TBA 2:50pm- Leland Berger, Oregon CannaBusiness Compliance Counsel, LLC 3:00pm- Music: Justin James Bridges 3:45pm- Paul Loney, Oregon Marijuana Law 3:50pm- Chris Bennett, Cannabis Culture 4:00pm- Music: Herbivores 4:40pm- Paul Stanford, Campaign for the Restoration and Regulation of Hemp 4:45pm -Anthony Johnson, New Approach Oregon 4:50pm-Anndrea Hermann, Hemp Industries Association (HIA) 5:00pm- Music: Real One 5:40pm-HEMPOSIUM COMEDY SHOW Ngaio Bealum, Boomer, Patrick Thomas Perkins 5:40pm -Speaker TBA 5:45pm Speaker TBA 5:50pm John C.

IMPORTANT SOLIDARITY UPDATE: The PDX People's Climate March is supporting the #DontShootPDX movement. The cause is necessary and its a common unity factor. Come march in solidarity this Sunday and help improve our communities health index. The ACLU of Oregon will hold a training this Saturday starting at 1 p.m. and continuing throughout the day till 4 p.m. ACLU organizers and Atty will train people on their basic rights when dealing with law enforcement. Are you confident in asserting your rights when dealing with police? Do you know when an officer has the right to search you? Many of us do not have the knowledge and confidence to stand up for our basic rights during an encounter with law enforcement. Knowing these rights and how to assert them should be a part of our basic education but, sadly, it is not. http://aclu-or.org/content/know-your-rights-your-rights-oregon In our community there are so many instances of hate crimes against blacks, women, our cities homeless, poor, disabled and our youth... we need to show consistent solidarity. People are afraid to be wrong, we are embarrassed by the way people view us and it keeps us from speaking out when its necessary. Tomorrow people in Ferguson will be marching. They aren't concerned about who is not standing with them because they are filled with pain. We need to follow our passion and make a stand with them. We will continue to update this event page and we ask that everyone come out to these gatherings so we can show the City of Portland, state of Oregon that violence against the people isn't acceptable. We need to start filing complaints regarding hate crimes against police officers and anyone else who discriminates and especially if it becomes physical. Join Us in Solidarity with the people of Ferguson, MO in honor of #MichaelBrown ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Groups on the ground in St. Louis are calling for nationwide solidarity actions in support of Justice for Mike Brown and the end of police and extrajudicial killings everywhere. On Saturday at 1pm -- every week after the murder of Mike Brown by a Ferguson police officer--in St. Louis they gathered at the location that Mike was shot in the Canfield Apartment buildings. We ask that you gather at the places in your community on Saturdays where police and extrajudicial killings have occurred to memorialize lives that have been lost and demand justice by ending systemic violence upon communities of color. We know that the murder of Mike Brown in St. Louis is just one of hundreds of murders per year by extrajudicial means throughout this country. There are too many names to list: Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo and so many others. Just in the past weeks since Mike’s murder, the Los Angeles Police killed a 24 year-old man who was laying down when shot. Enough is enough--these killings must stop. We must end the systems of white supremacy, police brutality and inequality for communities of color that lead to these police killings. We hope that with renewed attention on this issue, we can widen the conversation to address both justice for Mike Brown and the underlying systems of oppression that play out against people of color on a day-to-day basis. Please join us this and everybSaturday in calling for Justice for Mike Brown and the end of extrajudicial killings everywhere. We know that we will need powerful visuals and strategies to support our movement. In St. Louis, people have suggested using black caskets, photographs of those lost, and chalk outlines to send our message. Strategically, this nationwide event will be a tactic to help community members understand their personal rights and push for broad-based action on the issue of extrajudicial killings. Regardless of where you are, you can help move this fight forward by hosting an action in solidarity with St. Louisans demanding Justice for Mike Brown. Mike’s death was not an isolated incident, and we hope that groups around the country will use this moment to lift up and reenergize their own campaigns against systematic violence and the prison industrial complex. http://www.facebook.com/events/719132681455778/

Watermark Planning seeks the public's help to bring specific park areas to life and demonstrate several activities and amenities that could occur there regularly in the future. YOU'RE INVITED to picnic at the Hawthorne Bowl Beach, check out sports equipment from a kiosk near Saturday Market, and drop by an arts and crafts station by the Naito Legacy Fountain. We'd like to hear how you'd like to use the waterfront!
