The General Defense Committee of Industrial Workers of the World and local civil rights activists are preparing for the upcoming visit by President Bush to the University of Portland on August 21, 2003. Motivated by last year's outrageous police behavior towards peaceful, legal demonstrators, we are hosting the following events:

Refreshment provided. A donation is requested. Wear sensible clothing. For further information or childcare please call (503) 234-4518.

This event is open to all ages and the general public. Our goal is to promote awareness of resources and skills available to effectively exercise our freedom of assembly and speech.
