There was music, sharing, food, and community building in the street.
The food was prepared by local Iraqi families and shared with everyone.

Zahra organized this event and has a website here:

I will post a longer version video from this event, later on this same Indy Media page

This is so inspiring. I am heartened that the Iraqi people in Portland are not angry with Americans for bombing their country, killing their citizens and destroying their infrastructure. Oh and making refugees out of a million or so of them. Obviously they are a forgiving and peace loving people. Let's hope that spirit infests the US government. Thanks for doing this.
