Iraq Affinity Group supporters:

Below is an announcement for our action to follow up on tomorrow's 9/11 18 
years later event-- a cosponsored PPRC Friday rally protesting 18 years of 
the war in Afghanistan.

Let's have a moment of raucous noise (rather than a moment of silence) for 
John Bolton, who was fired as National Security Advisor today. Hooray!

The info about the October 4 event can also be found at


A link to a flyer is below. Please share widely and if your group wants to 
be listed as a cosponsor let us know

                            Friday, October 4, 2019
                                    5:00 PM
               Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW Yamhill and Broadway

    Join the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group as they cosponsor
    the weekly Portland Peaceful Response Coalition Rally and March for
    Peace and Justice on Friday, October 4 at 5 PM at Pioneer Courthouse
    Square, SW Yamhill and Broadway. The US invaded Afghanistan a few weeks
    after 9/11. Now 18 years later, the Trump administration has negotiated
    with the Taliban for a way for the US to extract itself from "America's
    longest war."

    The plans call for leaving thousands of US troops in Afghanistan--
    nearly 9000 of the 14,000 currently there. The Pentagon, pundits and
    some Democratic presidential candidates are all supporting the idea of
    staying in Afghanistan-- presumably indefinitely. Join us at this
    special version of the weekly Friday rally to say "Bring ALL the Troops
    Home from Afghanistan!"

    PPRC has held a rally every Friday since November 2001, shortly after
    the invasion, to protest the war and other US policies (more than 925
    weeks in a row). For more information or to get involved contact the
    Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group at 503-236-3065 (voice or
    text), email iraq at pjw.info , or visit the website at
