We need fifteen peacekeepers for the October 11 Peace Rally and March!

...Peacekeepers are needed to coordinate the safety of pedestrians and 
automobiles along the route. ...This task is vital to ensure a safe and 
efficient rally and march.

...It is necessary to get coordinated before the event to go over the 
basics of peacekeeping and the logistics of the traffic requirements.

...To that end, there may be a training for those who have not done this 
before, time and location TBA; RSVP to get the location to Joe Keating 
503-234-2613 or to Peace and Justice Works (iraq at pjw.info).

...Just basic nonviolence, de-escalation stuff, but you must attend a 
training if you have not before.



Details to be announced


--If you have a few dollars to send our way it will help cover expenses 
for this event, send your
check to Peace and Justice Works, PO Box 42456, Portland, OR 97242 and
