Iraq Moratorium - Protests, Activism, Direct Action, every month.....

On the Third Friday of every month, Take Action!

The slow-motion train wreck that is the occupation of Iraq grows daily more of a nightmare. In 2006 America voted to bring it to an end. But our politicians have failed to grasp the strain on our military and the depth to which America's influence in the world has fallen. We must force them and our media to recognize just how angry America is, and how massive the anti-war sentiment in this country has become.

The Iraq Moratorium will be an escalating monthly series of actions demanding an end to the war. Starting on Friday, September 21 and on the third Friday of every month thereafter, we will take the time to show our President and Congress that our troops must be brought home, now!
I was curious if Portland had any intentions on joining this movement, or if they are already events planned. From what I understand the new SDC (students for a democratic society) have started this new movement. Whether or not they deserve the name or we can expect a movement on the same scale or the escalation on the same scale as the 60s I wont get into.
