In conjunction with the Saturday, March 16 *National March on Washington*
where thousands of people will march in D.C. against the Trump
administration's effort to engineer a coup in Venezuela and a new
devastating war there, Hands Off Venezuela! Portland will be hosting our
own local event.
It is an honor to have Vets for Peace activist Dan Shea the day after he
returns from his trip to Venezuela as part of a delegation with the US
Peace Council. He'll share what he saw. We'll measure his experience
against our current U.S. atmosphere which pushes regime change, as we see

An hour indoors with Dan will be followed by an hour outdoors, directly
heading out to march and onto the Hawthorne bridge. Be part of our protest
against Trump-directed international meddling.
