resistance & tactics

All day vigil January 20 Bring the troops Home NOW!

OK folks- time to get out of bed early. Take the day off work and stand up for peace and justice Thursday, January 20 in Terry Shrunk Plaza.

The event will run 8:00am-6:30pm It's being put on by Peace and Justice Works...
It's Inaguration day- If you cant make it to DC to properly celabrate it come down to Terry Shrunk Plaza, SW 3rd and Madison, in Downtown Portland.

Staying home and keeping quiet is implied consent to the war on iraq and another four years of gross negligence and mismanagement by our federal government.

Drums at 9:00am, speakers from Military Families Speak out and others personally touched by the man-made disaster in Iraq.

It's going to be a mellow, "family friendly" event So bundle up for the weather bring the kids and grandparents. Bring everyone you know.

Let Gov. Kulongowski know we want out Oregon National Guard home NOW!

I belive we will have live music as well.

Rain or shine, the world needs you!


or type peace and justice works into google to get there on the web.

We need everyone, rain or shine. Show the world we care.

Remember- Your silence is your consent to the Bush agenda. Stand up and be counted as a decent human being.

see ya all there!

Exempt? 08.Jan.2005 20:04


Cannot bus riders be exempt from "Not One Damn Dime Day" to attend the event? Do coffee lovers have to bring their own thermos? How far do we take the no dime day?

Not about "damn dime day" 08.Jan.2005 20:38

As far as I know this event doesn't have anything to do with the not one damn dime day. Did I say anything implying it did in the post? if so, sorry... You can take the bus, drive your car, hire a limo or if thats not enough charter a helicopter!

see you there!

Show the world we don't approve of Bush 08.Jan.2005 21:18


Sounds great.
The world need to know that 50% of Americans are sane and don't blindly support
our Glorious Leader.

This Jan 20th is going to be a Coronation. All hail King George. I'll feel a lot better about
America when I see people stand up and register a little dissent over the tragic miscarriage of democracy we called an election.


This is what we need! 10.Jan.2005 09:40


Great job with organizing this!

Sounds like something anyone can support.

Come on folks. Show your disgust with this war that's already lost. The only question now is how many more people will needlessly die for the sins of Amerika.
