Sanctions Kill People Too!" March/Rally
*Sunday, July 28, 2019*
1:00 PM
At the Amphitheater east of Salmon Street Springs in
Waterfront Park (SW Salmon and Naito Pkwy at the river's edge)

There will be a march and rally on Sunday, July 28 primarily focusing on the possibility of US military intervention in Iran and Venezuela, but also calling attention to the use of sanctions as economic war. The event will take place at 1 PM at the Amphitheater east of Salmon Street Springs in Waterfront Park (SW Salmon and Naito Pkwy at the river's edge). This is a family-friendly, permitted event.

The main message of the event is "No U.S. War in Iran or Venezuela," adding that "Sanctions Kill People Too!" Other points agreed on by event organizers are:

• Demilitarize America- war only serves the 1%
