9/11: Twenty Years of War, Stoking Fear,
Join Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group on Friday, September 10,
2021 to mark the devastating 20th anniversary of 9/11. Speakers will address issues
that have plagued America and thus, the world, after the US chose to start endless wars rather than
seek justice. Other than the wars, which expanded from Afghanistan to Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan,
Libya, Somalia and Syria, topics will include threats to civil liberties / the prison camp at
Guantanamo Bay and the rise in Islamophobia and anti-immigrant sentiments.
The event, titled "9/11: Twenty Years of War, Stoking Fear,
Erasing Rights and Misdirected Funding",
takes place at the weekly Friday
Peace and Justice at Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW Yamhill and
Broadway, starting 1/2 hour earlier than usual at 4:30 PM.
