"No More Invasions, No More Wars:
The Occupation of Iraq, Four Years Later"
Dual-opportunity action
Monday, March 19, 2007
Terry Schrunk Plaza, SW 3rd and Madison, Portland
12:00 noon-2 PM: Lunchtime Demonstration
4 PM-6:30 PM: Evening Visibility Action and
Message to the Iraqi People

The Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group is working on a
action to take place on Monday, March 19, 2007, exactly 4 years after
US invasion of Iraq. Both will take place at Terry Schrunk Plaza, SW
and Madison. The first will go from 12 noon to 2 PM to gather the
lunchtime crowds together. The evening event will run from 4 PM to 6:30
and will culminate with an oversize message to be transmitted to the
people. The day is being titled "No More Invasions, No More Wars: The
Occupation of Iraq, Four Years Later."

In addition to continuing the current calls to bring all the troops
home from
Iraq, these events will also act to call for:

--Bring all the troops homw now!
--Money for jobs, health care, education, housing and the
environment--not war.
--End the US occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, and the US-supported
occupations of the West Bank and Gaza
--Reject the "Long War on Terror" and say no to military action in
Iran, Syria,
North Korea, Somalia, or anywhere else under that banner
--Close the US prison camp at Guantanamo Bay and end the assault on
liberties at home
