This Sunday, we will be meeting downtown at the Park blocks (between Main & Park Avenues, near the Portland Art Museum) at 3 PM for an hour of silence to protest the war in Iraq. We will lie perfectly motionless and play dead during this time - this means it will be a peaceful protest, not a riot that may get out of hand. We don't expect any police involvement, although the cops may show up to snoop around. Musicians and non-musicians alike are encouraged to bring instruments, so that at 4:00 we can all play together. The weather forecast is predicting rain for Sunday, but we're going to be there, rain or shine. If it is raining, bring a raincoat or pancho, or a tarp to lie down on. (It seems more realistic to have our faces in the mud, as I would imagine dead soldiers would, but I doubt that will very pleasant.)
Tell your friends!
