from portland indymedia: Emergency Rally to Stop Iraq Escalation – DOWNTOWN PORTLAND ACTION – Stop the GD Iraq War
Pioneer Square at 6:00 PM
A 6 square block march through downtown with drums, chants, signs and support from Portland
After the voters, the generals, and the Iraq Study Group all told President Bush to lead us out of Iraq, he is planning an escalation and will send more troops as soon as this month. Congress can block an escalation but it is uncertain if they will. They need to hear from us immediately.
On Thursday night, MoveOn members across the country are organizing Emergency Rallies to Stop Iraq Escalation. We’ll get together and use signs and leaflets to make sure the rest of the community knows about Bush’s outrageous plan.
