One reason organizers in the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity
Group chose this date is that it's expected the City Council will be
considering a resolution opposing US intervention in Iran on Wednesday,
November 13 at 3:30 PM.
The forum is cosponsored by Veterans For Peace Chapter 72, Portland
Central America Solidarity Committee, Jewish Voice for Peace-Portland
