ANSWER is holding an EMERGENCY IRAQ PROTEST IN PORTLAND, OR and across the nation.
Here are the details:
SATURDAY APRIL 10 @ NOON
TERRY SCHRUNK PLAZA
JEFFERSON AND 3RD
U.S. OUT OF IRAQ NOW
The anti-war ANSWER Coalition calls for "emergency local demonstrations" nationwide to protest the war in Iraq, to demand the return of U.S. troops from Iraq, and money for healthcare and education, not the war. ANSWER is an acronym for "Act Now to Stop War and Racism."
While this is not a Kucinich event, an indpendant organization called MVP (Majority Visibility Project) will be onsite and in full force. Volunteers are invited to join MVP around 11:30 AM to get signs, posters and materials! MVP is the store front of the Kucinich campaign and is committed to getting the word out about the Iraq war other social justice issues through public visibility.
Dennis Kucinich has turned the full attention of his campaign to Oregon and to insisting that the Democratic Party take a strong stand on getting the UN in and the US out of Iraq. As the tempo of resistance to the US occupation of Iraq increases, citizen involvement in such activities magnifies his voice and our voice on this issue.
