Greetings Iraq Affinity Group supporters:

I have someone coming to help haul the Tower to the action site Saturday 
afternoon. If 1-2 people are going to be there early (1:30 ish) just to 
help us unload it, that would be great.

Remember, the flyer can be found here:


and you can see the event listed on KBOO's calendar at

By the way here are some details on the ships that are here/coming today, 
including an "Arleigh Burke-class destroyer."


Hope to see you Saturday!

                     Visibility action at the Rose Festival
                            *Saturday, June 8, 2019*
                                 2:00 to 4:00 PM
        Waterfront Park, NW Naito at Couch (north of the Burnside Bridge)

The Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group is cosponsoring this
year's annual War Resisters League protest at the Rose Festival, which
calls attention to the warships docked at Portland's waterfront and the
various recruiting booths that come with them. The visibility action
will take place from 2-4 PM on Saturday, June 8 on the edge of
Waterfront Park at NW Naito Parkway and Couch Streets, just outside the
Rose Festival barricades.

The IAG pointed out the irony several years ago about the fact that the
fences around the warships at the supposedly family-friendly Rose
Festival are adorned with signs that say "No Trespassing-- US Navy

In addition to WRL and the Iraq Affinity Group, this event has KBOO
90.7 FM Community Radio as a media cosponsor.
