march hare: we went to bug Nike again. the war is still going. will we be home by Christmas?
leni margolas: its a chance to join with other people to protest the insanity...I've been doing this for about a year and its just nice to know that I'm not alone and i find it just very energizing. its groups like this that made me move to Portland.
pam allee: are you tired of marching/working for peace - and paying for war? (it's your taxes) then come to laughing horse books monday night November 17th at 7 PM, 3652 se division, bus 4 - learn a bit about the many options and risk levels for redirecting your taxes as conscientious objection to war and destruction.....
poetg: can you image the damage from 4 more years!
rob: coming to these rallies and coming to these protest allow me to express my feeling or to vent where i cannot otherwise. its good to know that this is making a difference in Portland. it seems that each week as we march we see more people driving by honking, waving and/or flashing the peace sign that more people are agreeing with what we have to say. that we are getting the message out and that people are finally understanding what this is all about.
Paul: i remember when there were just the 4 or 6 people just up the street picketing the federal courthouse over huac (house unamerican activities committee) in the early 60's. 4 to 6 people registering their complaint over a period of time has a effect. when we march every week people see 50 or 100 people walking down the street carrying signs, speaking out against war and/or injustice. it reaches out, reminds more people that these atrocities are being carried out in our name and i can sleep well tonight knowing that i have spoken out against injustice today.
