Portland Peace Encampment needs YOU!

After 5 nights of steady rain, the Portland Peace Encampment and its signs are getting bedraggled. We request You bring down your favorite Pro-Peace / Anti-war signs and/or art (preferably waterproof). If you don't have art, hot food/drink and/or money donations are always welcome. Phone calls/faxes/e-mails, etc to the Mayor's office at 503-823-4120 / 503-823-3588(fax) / www.ci.portland.or.us/mayor are always needed.
After 5 nights of steady rain, the Portland Peace Encampment and its signs are getting bedraggled. We have spent the day reorganizing and cleaning up (to the satisfaction at least ourselves and, perhaps, City Hall). However, we haven't had the resources on hand for new signs.

We request You bring down your favorite Pro-Peace / Anti-war signs and/or art (preferably waterproof) down to the Portland Peace Encampment across from City Hall at SW 4th and Jefferson. Drop them off and/or wave them yourself for a few hours.

If you don't have art, hot food/drink and/or money donations are always welcome. Phone calls/faxes/e-mails, etc to the Mayor's office at 503-823-4120 / 503-823-3588(fax) / www.ci.portland.or.us/mayor are always needed.

Together, we can make a difference.

What do you want the signs to say? 08.Apr.2003 07:13

Why don't you list a few messages that you would like to see on any signs that people could drop off, and then maybe we could make them for you.
When thinking about this, remember that you want copy on signs that has fewer letters/words, but large in size so they can be seen from a great distance.
