Friday, October 7, 5:00 PM Pioneer Square Event
also Promotes Oct 15 Mobilization

On Friday, October 7, the weekly Portland Peaceful Response Coalition rally for peace and justice will welcome extra participants, as the date marks exactly 10 years since the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. The rally will take place, as it has since November, 2001, at the SW corner of Pioneer Courthouse Square at SW Yamhill and Broadway.

In addition to calling for all troops and contractors to come home from Afghanistan, the rally will serve at least two other functions:
--bringing recognition to protestors who are calling for an end to the wars and sustainable solutions to the economic and environmental crises facing us starting October 6 in Washington, DC (http://october2011.org)
--promoting the rally, march and forum to be held in Portland on Saturday, October 15 calling to "End the Wars--Bring Our $$ Home".

Co-sponsors of the expanded Friday Rally include Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group. Endorsers of the October 7 Friday Rally include Jewish Voice for Peace-Portland.

The organizers wish to acknowledge that the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur falls on the same day as this event.
