Why Portland's concentration camp remains nearly forgotten: the paper that supported it.

Portland, 22.02.2014 23:04

Will The Oregonian one day formally acknowledge its role in the local ethnic cleansing campaign that imprisoned and exiled Americans of Japanese descent? I'm betting against that since it can't even bring itself to mention the camp in recent stories that deal with former internees.

This week, on February 19, marks the anniversary of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's infamous Executive Order 9066 in 1942 which lead to the imprisonment of 100s of thousands of innocent American men, women, and children of Japanese descent for the duration of World War II.

The internments occupy a special place in Portland history, though you couldn't tell it by today's media.

Nearly 4,000 innocent men, women, children and seniors from Portland and beyond were imprisoned behind the barb-wire and the armed guards of a concentration camp called the Portland Assembly Center - located on the present-day site of the Expo Center - from May through September in that first full year of U.S. involvement in the Good War.

Only there was no Expo Center back then. It was, in fact, the Pacific International Livestock Exposition. That's right, a cattle yard. The camp facilities were hurriedly constructed atop manure-laced soil that reeked throughout much of that long hot summer of '42.

Executive Order 9066 set off a series of actions ultimately forcing more than 110,000 Japanese and Americans of Japanese descent into isolated military-style camps in Western desert areas for the duration of the war. Prior to their final destinations, the internees from California, Oregon and Washington State were first ordered into temporary Assembly Centers, a total of 16 locations up and down the West Coast. The Portland Assembly Center was one of those feeder camps. [...]

DOJ Hearing in Portland 2.18.14 - Judge wants the pubics testimony

Portland, 22.02.2014 23:04

Judge Michael Simon wants public testimony in USA vs. City of Portland. Consult Hardesty knows your commitment to attend will have political impact. We expect your passionate testimony to influence this judge. Believing The People can be relied on to protect their civil liberties, we request your input ... to reform these perpetrators of civil rights violations.

Feb 18th 2014 @ Mark O Hatfield Federal Courthouse, 1000 SW Third Ave., Portland, Oregon 97204

The City hopes to avoid trial, having been found by the Civil Rights Div. of the US DoJ, to employ police in illegal use of force. The City held two hearings after rushed, closed-door negotiations. The Mayor limited public testimony to 120 seconds on a settlement agreement now before the judge. They released the 77-page document at the beginning of that 2012 hearing. This is really our first chance to respond to the bargain.
 http://www.portlandonline.com/shared/cfm/image.cfm?id=424449

Simon has the authority to send a deficient agreement back to the parties. The Court invites members of the public to testify, in writing or orally, on the following topics:

Is the Agreement fair to everyone affected?
Is the Agreement reasonable?
Is the Agreement adequate to solve the problems identified in the Complaint?

REGISTER WITH THE COURT: Those who submit a Testimony Form by 31 January will be given preference, others participate 'as time permits.' Individuals will be allowed 5 minutes; groups with 3 members will receive 10 minutes each:

Crude oil terminal on the Willamette?!? URGENT.

Portland, 22.02.2014 23:04

"The Arc Logistics website lists the Portland site among its terminals and describes it as "capable of receiving, storing, and delivering heavy and light petroleum products," by both rail lines and marine vessels"

""The hope would be that short of unforeseen accidents they wouldn't be a concern for the river," "

Yep - that "unforeseen accidents" thing - like spills, de-railed train fires, leaks, explosions...who could have guessed any of that stuff would happen? [...]
