Hello Iraq Affinity Group supporters

This is a reminder about the PPRC Friday Rally coming up this week which 
the IAG is cosponsoring to mark 18 years since the beginning of the Afghan 
war. We last sent this info out on Sept. 10, noting you can also get info 
at this link:


There's a flyer for the event posted there, the link is in the listing 
below. We'll be handing out the same fact sheets we used on 9/11, noting 
that the military's new recruits are 9/11 children and asking the 
question, "Why won't the US military leave Afghanistan?"

                             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

     eighteen-year war and its implication is at
