Wheels of Justice Tour coming to Portland

Members of Voices in the Wilderness (www.vitw.org), the Palestine Right to Return Coalition (www.Al-Awda.org), the Middle East Children's Alliance (www.mecaforpeace.org), and affiliates of the International Solidarity Movement (www.palsolidarity.org) take to the road in a colorfully decorated full-size school bus for the Wheels of Justice Tour. Starting in mid-August 2003, this tour will canvass the western United Sates to challenge and educate North Americans on the occupation of Palestine and Iraq.

Having seen and lived with war, terror and occupation in Iraq and Palestine, participants in the Wheels of Justice offer first-hand experience irrespective of partisan politics and sound bite sloganeering. To build upon the growing domestic opposition to war against Iraq and occupation of Palestine, the Wheels of Justice Tour will cover the United States with education, outreach, training, active non-violent resistance, and community-building. The tour rolls into Missoula on Thursday, October 2.
