This email from (me at) Flying Focus Video Collective announces that video 
from the July 28, 2019 (!) march and rally against war and for justice is 
finally airing this coming week on cable tv (and streaming on Friday night 
for those who can "tune in" at 9:30 PM).

It is jarring to be nostalgic about marching in the streets as a thing of 
the past, but one day we will be out there again. Hopefully not too soon, 
though with Pompeo and Trump stepping up their rhetoric about Iran we need 
to keep supporting congressional efforts to say no to war.

Protest against wars in Iran and Venezuela (from July!) this week on the Video 

In July, 2019, 36 organizations cosponsored a march and rally to oppose 
threatened US wars in Iran and Venezuela, as well as a host of other policies 
such as deadly sanctions, environmental injustice, inappropriate criminalizing 
of immigrants, and more. This video includes most of the speakers from the 
rally at Waterfront Park, and a few short clips from the beginning of the march 
as it headed out around downtown Portland. Speakers include Sahar Yarjani 
Muranovic, an Iranian American and president of Oregon's National Organization 
for Women; Olivia Katbi Smith, co-leader of Portland Democratic Socialists of 
America; investigative reporter Arun Gupta; Candy Herrera, co-founder of Hands 
Off Venezuela PDX; Antonio Zamora of Demand Utopia, and Marco Mejia, a local 
human and immigrant rights activist.

The main organizer of the event was Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity 
Group. Emma Lugo from that group, who also hosts radio shows on KBOO-FM, 
appears briefly hosting the rally.

Flying Focus has produced this show during the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders. 
Don't let the lack of social distancing from the summer of 2019 distract you 
from the information, which is all sadly still relevant as the US continues to 
ratchet up pressure on Iran and Venezuela even during the pandemic.

This show was produced by Dan Handelman and recorded by PC Peri.

"No Wars in Iran or Venezuela-- 7/19" will play back at the following times; 
note you can see the Friday 9:30 PM Pacific show online streaming live.
