Joe reports on the popular Occupy Portland encampment, including phone calls from Sandy Polishuk, one of our Elder Activists working on-site in whatever capacity seems appropriate at the time, and from Jimmy, one of the Volunteer Coordinators.

There is a Volunteer Tent in the Encampment, with "Needs" posted prominently for anyone with some time to see.  Lately, they've been needing laundry services.  Do help if you can.
