Hello again PJW supporters
As promised yesterday, here is the up-to-date announcement for Sunday's 
mobilization against wars in Iran or Venezuela. With escalating tense news 
from the Strait of Hormuz daily, it's important for us to be a visible 
presence against military action! There are now 36 groups on board.

Weather reports look good-- perhaps a little on the hot and sunny side, so 
do wear sunscreen and whatever you need to stay cool in Waterfront Park.

We are still looking for a few more folks to fill in volunteer slots, 
especially the security team (training is tomorrow Wed 7/24 at 6 PM).

We have located a 10x10 canopy, thanks!!!

Please share widely. This info and all the links can also be found at

Thank you, see you Sunday!

                            *Sunday, July 28, 2019*

    There will be a march and rally on Sunday, July 28 primarily focusing
    on the possibility of US military intervention in Iran and Venezuela,
    but also calling attention to the use of sanctions as economic war. The
    event will take place at 1 PM at the Amphitheater east of Salmon Street
    Springs in Waterfront Park (SW Salmon and Naito Pkwy at the river's
    edge). This is a family-friendly, permitted event.

    The main message of the event is "No U.S. War in Iran or Venezuela,"
    adding that "Sanctions Kill People Too!" Other points agreed on by
    event organizers are:

    o Demilitarize America- war only serves the 1%

    o No occupation, No coup, No media lies!

    o Stop the war on the border

    o Money for people and the planet, not war!
