more details >>

There will be a reflective candlelight vigil, Sat., Sept. 24, 7:30 pm until dark (probably sometime between 8:00 and 8:30 pm). Three central bridges in Portland--BURNSIDE, MORRISON, AND HAWTHORNE--are key. We will stay safely and respectfully on sidewalks, allowing room for pedestrians and cyclists to pass. (If you can't make it to one of these bridges and have friends who will join you, any bridge will do.)

The message is "NOW IS THE TIME TO END THE WAR. NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING THEM HOME." The first message is to end this war. Concern is in no way limited to American safety, but to the safety of all who are in danger in this nightmare war. Announcements are scheduled in Alternatives Magazine and Oregon Peaceworker. PLEASE spread the word as far and wide as possible to your congregations, fellowships, peace groups,and other constituents.
