Rose City Antifa issued that call for a boycott due to years of antisemitic activism and promotion of militant racists by Citybikes President Tim Calvert. The Red & Black Café is a worker-owned cooperative business in Portland also affiliated with the local branch of the Industrial Workers of the World.

The co-op activist whose home was targeted had previously worked independently of RCA within the co-op movement, trying to raise the issue of Tim Calvert's antisemitic activism within the Western Worker Cooperative Conference (WWCC) at a time when Calvert was part of the WWCC Board. Tim Calvert's ally Rod McLaughlin (AKA "Jay Knott"), another hardcore antisemitic propagandist who maintains the Pacifica Forum website, wrote about this co-op activism in a March 2012 article titled "Zionist Bullying in the West Coast Co-op Movement".
...
The alleged "Zionist bullying" was speaking out against the Judeophobic agitation that Calvert engages in alongside racist, anti-choice and anti-queer organizers.
...
We are alarmed that discussion from the co-op movement was passed on to McLaughlin and possibly other political associates of Calvert.

Regarding Citybikes President Tim Calvert, we have transcribed part of Calvert's September 2011 speech and have noted some of this speech's antisemitic aspects.

...
Tim Calvert's Speech of September 10 For information on Calvert's other antisemitic organizing and political work with racists, Holocaust-deniers and other extreme-Right activists, see our article here as well as our chronology of activism by Calvert and the Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance.

One week after Rose City Antifascists called for a complete boycott of Citybikes Workers' Co-op in response to continued antisemitic organizing by Citybikes President Tim Calvert, this boycott was reported in an October 2 article on the BikePortland website.
...
Rather than work to establish trust and communication, Citybikes has continued with a pattern of hostility which they established several years ago, when they stood by Calvert following Calvert's hosting of white separatist Valdas Anelauskas in Portland.
...
Calvert fired: Tim Calvert continuing his far-Right racist organizing while being enabled and propped up by an allegedly progressive space is unacceptable. Calvert organizes for and with anti-choice, racist extremists--these are not small issues and the people in question are not harmless "wingnuts. We will not let Citybikes off the hook or allow the business to continue its tacit support for Calvert. We do not believe that Citybikes should continue to give Calvert credibility and prestige through maintaining him in their business or in co-op circles. A large body of information has been delivered to Citybikes. There has been plenty of time to explore options. Calvert just has to go Public apology: Citybikes has spent over three years siding with and defending Tim Calvert, while maligning anti-racists who brought forward information on Calvert's political organizing. We believe that Citybikes needs to take meaningful responsibility for their years of covering for Calvert's activism, indeed allowing his antisemitic activities to grow even more extreme. Citybikes has frequently made erroneous statements about Calvert's activism and politics, and has released statements in the past that merely shifted blame and created further harm. Due to the co-op's years of tacit support for Calvert, our organization would certainly need to dialogue with Citybikes and ensure that their much-needed apology actually helped to heal the situation.
...
We note that the BikePortland article, in quoting its source that recently left employment at Citybikes, states that it would be illegal to fire Tim Calvert due to Citybikes' own bylaws. This is the first time that anybody associated with Citybikes has publicly made such a claim. Three years earlier, Citybikes refused to fire Calvert because of the more general claim that "A person cannot be fired from his employment for his political, religious or philosophical views. Our organization pointed out that it is not against Oregon or federal law to fire an employee because of that employee's bigoted political advocacy. If Citybikes has internal bylaws that serve to protect Calvert, the co-op has had over three years so far to amend them. We encourage Citybikes to now change their bylaws if necessary to deal with this situation.
Citybikes has not acknowledged that Tim Calvert is the source of the problems their collective is in. We would like to remind them that Tim Calvert is responsible for his bigoted organizing. Calvert is furthermore using his power within Citybikes along with legal threats, to hold questioning Citybikes workers at bay. The responsibility for people leaving their jobs at Citybikes rests squarely on the shoulders of Tim Calvert and the co-op that refuses to challenge him. Any business that projects a progressive image should expect public criticism when its President promotes antisemitism, or organizes events for racists and Holocaust-deniers. We hope that this will be acknowledged straightforwardly by Citybikes when they finally issue a statement regarding this situation. According to the BikePortland article, such a statement is to be expected from Citybikes in the wake of a co-op meeting that takes place at some point this week. In the meantime, we urge anti-racists to let Citybikes know that a boycott will continue until Calvert is gone and the co-op makes basic steps towards setting matters right.

This is an addendum to our recent article on Calvert to provide more background and context.
...
Tim Calvert, the Citybikes President at the time of writing, is defended and promoted by the rest of the co-op, who attempt to maintain a progressive image while propping up their antisemitic President. Anti-racists first raised the issue of Calvert's antisemitic organizing in 2009, after Calvert and his cohorts in the Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance hosted a speech by Valdas Anelauskas, a racist organizer who proclaims that evidence for the Holocaust is "shaky.
...
Citybikes mishandled its response during 2009, making excuses for Calvert and declaring that no problem existed after Calvert issued a bogus apology, even though Calvert's organizing against Jewish people continued unabated. In September of this year, anti-racists again drew attention to Calvert's antisemitic organizing. In particular, we noted that Calvert twice gained venues for Fritz Springmeier, an antisemitic author convicted of bank robbery charges alongside a white supremacist accomplice. (Springmeier's 1997 robbery plot also involved detonating a bomb at an adult video store as a diversion.) Footage of the Citybikes President giving an extreme antisemitic speech was also pointed to at this time, and Rose City Antifascists provided an extensive chronology of organizing by Calvert and his Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance organization.

Portland 9/11 Truth Alliance Hosts Right-Wing Bomber Courtesy of Citybikes President, Tim Calvert
...
A central organizer for the Valdas Anelauskas event in 2009, Tim Calvert, has recently stepped up his activism with the 9/11 Truth Alliance once again. Calvert's activism involves both organizing of events for far-Right speakers, and also his own spreading of antisemitic propaganda. Rose City Antifa believe that a key factor enabling Calvert's activism is the support he receives from his workplace at Citybikes Workers' Cooperative, as well as the apathy and tacit acceptance of large segments of the regional co-op movement towards Calvert's Judeophobic organizing.
Rose City Antifa aim in this report to provide some context about Fritz Springmeier and Springmeier's associations, as well as to discuss the politics of the 9/11 Truth Alliance and Tim Calvert's return to public far-Right activism.
