    (minimum of 15 total needed) (Point Person: Joe Keating)

    We need fifteen peacekeepers for the October 11 Peace Rally and March!

    ...Peacekeepers are needed to coordinate the safety of pedestrians and automobiles along the route.
    ...This task is vital to ensure a safe and efficient rally and march.

    ...It is necessary to get coordinated before the event to go over the basics of peacekeeping and the logistics of the traffic requirements.

    ...Whether or not you have been trained before, please RSVP to Joe Keating 503-234-2613 or to Peace and Justice Works (iraq @ if you can help on the day of the event (at Shemanski Park and along the 2-mile march route). A training will take place at 12:00 Noon on Sunday the 11th just prior to the rally beginning. Expect to be "on duty" until 3:30 or 3:45 when the march returns to the park.

    ...Just basic nonviolence, de-escalation stuff, but you must attend the training if you have not before.

    ..Dress warmly, prepared for rain. Bring a sack lunch, a bottle of water, and your cell phone if you have one. Some folks will be on security during the rally.
