I know most of you will be out with us at the visibility action on 
Wednesday (4-5:30 PM, rain, snow or shine!) but wanted to pass along the 
information on this event which is being coordinated by the Occupy 
Portland Elder Caucus.

Zaher also gave a presentation at the end of last month that I sent 
around, and was on KBOO on Thursday's "Fight the Empire" show:


Thanks to Angie from IVAW/VFP/KBOO for sending this.


By the way, we have TWO flaky vehicles which we're counting on for 
transporting the Tower of Peace. If you have a vehicle with a roof rack 
and good traction (just in case) can you contact me ASAP?

Also, we may try to find a way to conduct Monday's Iraq Affinity Group 
meeting using a conference call, but need to know how many people would 
want to be on the line and/or could find their way to the office.

Report from Kabul: Zaher Wahab
7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Multnomah Friends Meetinghouse
4312 SE Stark St., Portland

Zaher Wahab was born, raised and schooled in Afghanistan. He received his 
BA from the American U. of Beirut, an MA from Columbia U., an MA in 
Anthropology and the PH.D. in International Development Education from 
Stanford U. He taught at Lewis and Clark College for 40 years and then 
went to the American U. of Afghanistan full time in 2014. He is director 
of Graduate Studies and the Center for Teaching and Learning at AUAF.

Zaher has been traveling to Afghanistan every year since 2002 to help 
rebuild the Afghan Higher education system. He knows the country well and 
knows about US/NATO involvement there first hand. He has just returned 
from Kabul for a brief visit, and will go back soon. His talk consists of 
a critical analysis of the political, military, economic and cultural 
situation in that war torn country.
