Local Solidarity Peace demonstrations

Here are two actions taken locally.
In solidarity with the peace marchers in D.C., we stood with our Peace flags on the foot bridge over Hwy 99 in Oregon City. We have brought our flags there several times, but it felt like a good place to start our day. There were many positive responses from drivers. Boy was it cold though! The wind was whipping up through that tunnel and nearly ripped the flags from our hands. A young couple stopped by as they walked over to the viewpoint for the Willamette Falls. The young woman, who works for the city of Oregon City, gave me her warm mittens and thanked us for what we were doing. I was very grateful, because without those gloves, I would have had to head for warmth a lot sooner.

From Oregon City, we went to the Oak Grove Vigil on McLoughlin and were very pleased to see that there were around 35 people standing along both sides of the roads with signs and flags. As most of you know, these folks come out every Saturday from noon to 1 o'clock. We were pleased by the many positive responses we received from those driving past. One elderly man in a rather large truck gave us the thumbs down, but now I know at least one of the 28%ers. Looked a lot like Karl Rove.

I attach a photo, though it really does not show much of the crowd. It was just too cold to take time to get a good composition. Trust me....there were around 35 folks.

Veterans for Peace "Support and Defend the Constitution"

About 40-60 people participated in an awareness action today at Terry Shrunk Plaza on SW 3rd and Madison (across from the Federal Building) waving colorful peace flags, holding signs and eliciting honks and thumbs-up from passing cars and buses. I had the privilege to speak with a variety of upstanding citizens including Martha Odum of the Surge Protection Brigade, a retired pediatrician from Iran, and several members of Veterans for Peace Chapter 72, in addition to other supporters of peace and justice.

Many of the good people I spoke with advocated Impeachment for Bush and Cheney and an immediate withdrawal of the troops. Several activists told me they've been doing this kind of thing since the 60's and that it was really a shame having to protest war but that at least it's something they can do.

I was touched by the heartfelt comments most people had to offer and I hope you'll take an opportunity to listen to the 17 minutes worth of audio commentary.
