HOLLYWOOD NEIGHBORS STAND TOGETHER FOR PEACE

report from Sunday's peace rally in Hollywood!

Two Sundays in a row, Hollywood neighbors and friends have stood together along Sandy Boulevard in Hollywood with our peace signs and dancing peace symbols. Each time a group of 30 or more, young and old, manifested a presence for peace, in driving rain one Sunday and bitter wind the second Sunday. Enthusiasm was high among demonstrators, and passersby gave us energetic support with horn honking, waving and thumbs up. There is a lot of support for making this a weekly event -- SO, please join the Sunday Hollywood Peace Vigils, 4 p.m. each Sunday, NE 42nd and Sandy Boulevard. It's a short walk from the Hollywood transit mall, which is a Max stop as well as connecting point for the 70# cross town busses.

This is Hollywood in Portland, not LA. So you don't need to get Greyhound tickets for this one.
