Hundreds of soldiers have left Fort Lewis and other west coast military bases to head for other countries. They are being helped by the underground. Many of these soldiers came back to the states thinking thier tour of duty was over. Instead they were kept in a locked down situation in barracks and many have been sent back to the hell that is Iraq.
Some are getting the message that there is no way out. They are leaving and asking for help from Quakers and others. They will be helped! If you find one or more of these refugees of bush's nightmare, please help them. It will not be easy to contact the Quakers because the miltary is sending out cops to hunt down and find those who are AWOL. No doubt they will try to infiltrate the Quaker groups and other who are known to help.
The word on the street is after the court challenged gone bad recently, resisters are leaving any way they can as the CO avenue will not work.
Be aware and make the underground railroad strong!
For those who don't know, there is a movement and petition to get the governor of Oregon to ask that all National Guard from Oregon be brought home immediately.
Come to the J20 anti-inaugural event downtown to hear speakers and sign a petition to bring home the Oregon National Guard.
