MARCH AGAINST DRONES PDX
Part of an international day of action against drones
Rally and "die-in"

 link to www.interoccupy.net

From the Facebook page,
"On September 11, we will march on Portland City Hall in solidarity with the March Against Drones actions taking place at the White House in Washington, D.C., and around the world.

"We are STANDING UP to the corrupt government. We demand that our states and cities NOT be used as support apparatus for murder.

"At noon, we will rally at City Hall. We will make as much noise as possible. Then at 3:00 p.m., we will die in a silent and powerful form of protest where we lie in a pile of bodies to symbolize the many innocent lives lost to murderous drone strikes.

"So please join us. It will be a moving and powerful day to remember."
