Hey PJW supporters
Every year a few of us go down to support the War Resisters League action 
at the Rose Festival. At what used to be called the "fun center" (now the 
"CityFair") there are usually one or more military recruiting booths / 
stations. This is of course in addition to the warships parked along our 
waterfront. I'm hoping to get a photo this year of the fences around those 
ships which, at this "family-friendly" event are lined with barbed wire 
and warn that trespassers may be shot. (From Homeland Security, family 
friendly since 2001.)

Anyway, here are the details from John Grueschow at WRL. The protest 
usually is at Salmon St Springs but is now slated just North of the 
Burnside Bridge. Don't forget your sunscreen!

Annual protest of militarism at the Rose Festival: the warships and the 
military recruiting booths at the downtown seawall.

Saturday, June 10th, 2:00 to 4:00 pm. - in Waterfront Park just north of 
the Burnside Bridge (where the military recruiters set up their booths).

We will have signs and banners, and you can bring your own too. We will 
stand and present our message for peace and against militarism.

Join us for all or part of this annual protest.
