Stop the Climate Crisis: End War
A forum including updates on
Iran, Venezuela, Yemen and other US "hotspots"

Tuesday, November 5, 2019
7:00 PM
Augustana Lutheran Church Community Room (downstairs)
2710 NE 14th (corner of NE 15th and Knott), enter through breezeway

Local Code Pink staff person Cody Urban* will appear as part of a panel discussion to link the issues of climate change and war, update the community on US belligerence in Iran and Venezuela, focus on the US's role in the war on Yemen, touch on US presence in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, and more. Sahar Yarjani Muranovic, Executive Director of Oregon NOW, will address US policy in Iran. Dan Shea of Veterans for Peace Chapter 72 will talk about Venezuela, having visited that country in March 2019. Host Theresa Mitchell of KBOO will also discuss US policy and the devastation of Yemen. The event, titled "Stop the Climate Crisis: End War A forum including updates on Iran, Venezuela, Yemen and other US 'hotspots'" will take place on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 7 PM at the Augustana Lutheran Church, 2710 NE 14th (at the corner of NE 15th and Knott). It is accessible via the #8 Bus Line.

One reason organizers in the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group chose this date is that it's expected the City Council will be considering a resolution opposing US intervention in Iran on Wednesday, November 13 at 3:30 PM.

The forum is cosponsored by Veterans For Peace Chapter 72, Portland Central America Solidarity Committee, Jewish Voice for Peace-Portland, Code Pink Portland, Hands Off Venezuela PDX and KBOO Community Radio. It is endorsed by the Pacific Green Party.
