I’m making vegan tamales to benefit the Freehaus squatters’ recent legal fees. *********************** IF YR IN PDX, COME HANG OUT. THERE IS GOING TO BE AN AWESOME SHOW! 6305 N DETROIT ~~~~~ In June of 2013, Freehaus, a space that was home to many radical, queer folks and a safe and welcome space to many in the community was evicted after it was sold to the infamous foreclosure flipping gentrifying shithead Juan Diaz. here is a link to the Shitheads’s website. http://diazjuan.com/ After the squat was evicted, folks from the community were invited to come salvage anything they wanted from the house before it would be destroyed. After a few days of salvaging, and general fare-well fun, Juan Diez saw what was happening, panicked and invited 20 cops to the house. Three folks: Griffin, Jamie, and Shea, were unfortunately captured by the police and charged with all sorts of vandalism madness and are being forced to pay back a total of $15,000! They need help!
