AUDIO FILE: Oregon Coast Speaks Out For Peace

While visiting the Oregon coast over the week end of January 24th, I was fortunate to interview some folks in Newport and Waldport during their weekly demonstration against the war with Iraq. These demonstrations have been ongoing since October 26, 2002, and the number of participants is growing
Not surprisingly, folks had much the same perspective of an invasion of Iraq as do the people of Portland, and people around the world. Put the money into our economy; it's really about oil; take care of the Vet's injured and damaged during the Gulf War; it's really about oil; we shouldn't treat the planet like it's our oyster; it's really about oil; we should take care of this beautiful planet and each other instead of waging war.
The interviews were punctuated by numerous horns honking in support, demonstrating that the peace movement is gaining momentum, not only in the cities, but in every corner of the country.
This audio file features four people from Newport, and two from Waldport, and is about 8 minutes in length.
