Local Code Pink staff person Cody Urban* will appear as part of a panel
discussion to link the issues of climate change and war, update the
community on US belligerence in Iran and Venezuela, focus on the US's
role in the war on Yemen, touch on US presence in Iraq, Afghanistan and
Syria, and more. Sahar Yarjani Muranovic, Executive Director of Oregon
NOW, will address US policy in Iran. Dan Shea of Veterans for Peace
Chapter 72 will talk about Venezuela, having visited that country in
March 2019. The event, titled "Stop the Climate Crisis: End War A forum
including updates on Iran, Venezuela, Yemen and other US 'hotspots'"
will take place on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 7 PM at the Augustana
Lutheran Church, 2710 NE 14th (at the corner of NE 15th and Knott). It
is accessible via the #8 Bus Line.

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,
Code Pink Portland, Hands Off Venezuela PDX and KBOO Community Radio.
It is endorsed by the Pacific Green Party.
