Hi PJW supporters
Next week we will once again be cosponsoring the PPRC Friday rally to help 
them mark 15 years out on the streets! Spread the word. I think the 
corporate media should even be paying attention to the longevity of this

Portland Peaceful Response Coalition began "Friday Rallies for Peace and 
Justice" in November 2001

                 Friday, November 4, 2016, 5:00 PM
             "15 Years Speaking Out For Peace and Justice"
         Expanded Friday Rally w/Portland Peaceful Response Coalition
              Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW Yamhill and Broadway

On the night of September 11, 2001, Portland area peace activists came 
together, predicting that the events of that day would be used as an 
excuse by the US to go to war. A march of over 4000 people was quickly 
organized, followed by an emergency march the day the Afghan war began 
(Oct. 7, 2001). About a month later, the group that grew out of the first 
meeting, the Portland Peaceful Response Coalition (PPRC), held the first 
of its weekly Friday Rallies for Peace and Justice. On Friday, November 4, 
2016, Peace and Justice Works (PJW) Iraq Affinity Group is helping PPRC 
mark 15 years since that first protest, combining efforts for that day's 5 
PM event at the SW corner of Pioneer Courthouse Square (SW Yamhill and 
Broadway). This will be the 784th continuous weekly rally, rain or shine, 
opposing over the years US wars (Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, 
Yemen, Libya, Syria), US foreign policy (support for Israel's occupation 
of Palestine, ill-advised trade deals), climate change, police brutality, 
racism, Islamophobia, and other issues.
