Pdx Universal Health Care March

July 3, noon, march from Pioneer Courthouse Sq. (SW corner) to Terry Shrunk Plaza, concluding at Sen. Gordon Smith's office (World Trade Center), where his staff will receive petitions asking for national health care.
Please bring a friend and , if possible, a cane, crutches, sling, bandages, or other material to make it appear that you might need health care. We will transport "Uncle Sam On a Stretcher" (symbolizing U.S. health care), chant, and hear speakers (including those with personal health care stories) at Terry Shrunk Plaza. The rally will draw attention to our broken system and the advantages of a national health care system. Speakers will include members of Physicians for a National Health Program and of Health Care For All-Oregon. At Smith's office we will present signatures gathered at our community colleges asking for national health care. See you there!!

all booked up

Just a suggestion for furture actions - please get word out much sooner. This post is the first and only listing of your action that I've seen. Many people might like to participate in something like this, but due to the short notice may, like me, already have other plans. I could have written it into my calendar had I had advance notice.

Good luck. I hope it goes well. Thanks for your hard work on this issue. More of us will join you in coming events with more heads up.

We need to form coalition with other groups in Portland to make ourselves heard. There are so many issues to be addressed. If we all send people to each other's marches, we present a larger front. How can we interact more effectively? We should have access to one web site or email so we can communicate quickly. Any ideas?
