Hi again Iraq Affinity Group supporters

The next meeting of the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group will be 
held this coming Wednesday, January 13 at 7 PM at our office at 2807 SE 

Before I get to this month's agenda, here is a link to today's post as we 
build toward next Friday's "End 25 Years of Killing: US Out of Iraq" rally 
at 4:30 PM in Pioneer Courthouse Square. It is a poster for what was a 
very ambitious-- and as far as I know still unmatched-- peace march which 
started with rallies on the east and west sides, both leading to marches 
that met up at NW Broadway and Everett Sts (I have the march routes in our 
history notebook!).

Here's the proposed agenda for Wednesday's meeting:

   The Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group is committed to educating
   the public about the effects of U.S. policy on the people of Iraq, and
   other areas including SW Asia, North Africa, and the "Middle East."

7:00 PM Political update: brief headlines including what's new in
         Iraq/Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iran, Ukraine,
