The second of those rallies is coming up one week from today, Friday,
September 22 at 5 PM at Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW Yamill and Broadway.
From the listing:

September 23 marks 3 years since the US launched its first bombing
attacks in Syria, ostensibly against the Islamic State, but as shown by
the Trump administration, as a means to fight against the Syrian
government. After bombing a Syrian airfield in April and shooting down a
Syrian plane in June, the US is escalating this war. The US has troops on
the ground and makeshift airbases in a sovereign nation without their
consent or a UN mandate.

In the interim, the UN has expressed concern at the high civilian casualty
rate in Raqqa:
Heavy civilian casualties in Raqqa from air strikes: U.N. (Reuters 8/31)
www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-un-idUSKCN1BB17G

We recognize there are many other issues at play in the US today,
including the ongoing and escalating rhetoric with North Korea, the rise
of right wing protests with attendant violence (including police
violence), immigration and environmental issues. We see these all as being
connected to the wars, not in the least that ending military spending and
investing in human needs would be one way to bring resolution to those
issues.

Join us as we review the legislative agendas of the organizations in our community that are leading efforts to reform our justice system. Learn how these issues affect the lives of real people, and learn how you can become engaged in the reform effort.
The "Great Recession" financial crisis of 2007/8 brought forth the need for Americans to examine the financial institutions which came to negatively impact Americans, increasing the inequities of American society as well as the divide based on race. That examination begun with a critical look at the role of the too-big-to-fail banks and a desire to develop financial institutions which support the needs for local financing of local needs, separated from the profit seeking activities of the too-big-too-fail banks.

Thus a movement to form public banks was reborn. The movement today focuses on the formation of municipal banks. Movement grows coast to coast with active efforts from Seattle, San Francisco, and Santa Fe and going east to Washington DC and Philadelphia. And now the effort starts in Portland.

See the film, directed by Peter Bratt, about Dolores Huerta. She is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87.

With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change.

Q&A screenings announced!
Peter Bratt in person Sept 29 & 30
Stop the Deception - End The Wars!

Making Sense of the War on Terror

The government and media have misled us about 9/11 in order to compel public opinion to support the "War on Terror" , the longest most expensive war in American History.

Why have we gone along with it? Do we accept endless war as normal? Are we numb to the suffering caused by our military interventions?

No we have simply been propagandized into submission. We have been deceived into thinking that the War on Terror is a good thing, a valiant struggle against
terrorists who intend to attack us as we were on 9/11.

Behind the War on Terror is a strategic plan crafted decades in advance to redraw the map of the Middle East. 9/11 was a false flag operation blamed on Muslims in order to start the military operations for that strategic plan. Recognizing the origin of the plan is crucial to understanding the deception that has changed our world.

Christopher Bollyn is the author of "Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World" and "Solving 9-11: The Original Articles". As a journalist with a weekly newspaper based in Washington DC he has, from the beginning, investigated the events of September 11, 2001, and questioned the official narrative. He soon realized that the government and mainstream media were colluding to deceive the public about the terror attacks in order to take the nation into an open-ended war in the Middle East. His research proves that 9/11 was the keystone of a strategic plan to launch the War on Terror.
