Just sending this reminder about the upcoming 800th PPRC Friday rally. 
Things are tight at the SW corner of Pioneer Square due to construction 
but I'm sure we'll figure something out.

Hi again
Below is our announcement for the Friday Rally two weeks from tomorrow, on Feb 
24, which will be the 800th consecutive PPRC Friday Rally for Peace and 
Justice. The Iraq Affinity Group is co-sponsoring as part of our ongoing 
support for PPRC and also as part of our ongoing effort to be sure that among 
the real dangers we face as a nation today is an expansion of warfare and war 
crimes. The botched special forces raid in Yemen which killed civilians and an 
American soldier in addition to Yemeni militants is just a harbinger of things 
to come.


But as noted below, the Friday rallies aren't only about war and peace, but 
also about all the inter-related issues.

Spread the word!
