Feb. 5th: Get on the Bus to Support Lt. Ehren Watata!
Portland to Ft. Lewis Bus Trip for National Day of Action at Watata's
On Monday, February 5 join fellow Portlanders as we travel to Ft.
Lewis Washington to support First Lieutenant Watada during his
military court martial. As the first Army officer to publicly speak
out against the war and refuse deployment to Iraq, Lt. Watada faces a
maximum six years in prison. Watata supporters are coming from around
the country to this historic day of action to support his courageous
stand against an illegal war.
American Friends Service Committee, Recruiter Watch PDX and Veterans
for Peace Chapter 72 invite you to join us on a chartered bus from
Portland to Ft. Lewis to stand with Lt. Watata. Our friends at Code
Pink are also organizing a car caravan. Either way, we hope you can
make it to stand with Lt. Watata and say no to the war in Iraq.
The bus will leave 8:00 am Monday, February 5 from Gateway Transit
Center in Portland and return that evening. Tickets are $25 general /
$15 student/senior and are first come, first serve.

"My fellow soldiers are fighting and dying in Iraq and their families
are suffering because of the lies and deceptions crafted by the Bush
Administration. The Iraq war is not only a crime against domestic and
international law but [it] is a terrible moral injustice against the
Iraqi people." Lt. Ehren Watada.
