Montavilla Protests

Does anyone else in Montavilla want to publicly oppose the war?
I propose that we do some actions near the freeway, Stark, and/or Burnside. Ideas include die-in's at the freeway entrance/exits around 92nd and Stark, signs over the freeway ('Bring our troups home alive' comes to mind), and candlelight vigils on the sidewalks.

I believe that by being outside and open to talking to passers by, we can open dialogue and help others to think outside of their boxes. This neighborhood has a 1950's feel to it, so I think that there is a lot of old-school stagnant public opinion here. There are a lot of churches around here, so Sunday noon-ish would be a good time to preach to others outside of our own choir, no?! I have experience in public relations and could get some media here.

Please respond if you are interested, and I will gladly organize.

I would be very interested in meeting you and discussing your opinions. I am a life-long resident of Montavilla and a recent PSU graduate with a BA in History and Political Science. I am trying to form a intergovernmental committee at the neighborhood level to directly inform our community about what our government is doing at all levels. I need politically active individuals to make it work. Please let me know what you think. And please visit the Montavilla Neighborhood website and feel free to suggest any posting, events, or comments. Thank you for speaking up, David Linn
