SECURITY TEAM: Training Wed 7/24, 6-8 PM

      We're looking to have about 15 people for our security team at the July 28
      rally and march. Longtime security point person Joe Keating will
      conduct a training on Wednesday, July 24 from 6-8 PM at Augustana Lutheran
      Church, upstairs in the Fireside Room.

      ...The training involves basic nonviolence and de-escalation skills, but
      you must attend the training to participate on the 28th.

      ...The security team helps to coordinate the safety of pedestrians and automobiles along the route.

      ...This task is vital to ensure a safe and efficient rally and march.

      ...It is necessary to get coordinated before the event to go over the
      basics of security and the logistics of the traffic requirements.

      RSVP to Joe Keating 503-234-2613 or to Peace and Justice Works
      ( iraq @ ) if you can come to
      the training and be in Waterfront Park from 12:30 (just before the rally)
      until about 3:30 (when the march will for sure be over, possibly earlier).
      The march route is about 2 miles long.

..........DAY OF RALLY (July 28):

PARK POINT/CLEAN-UP (about 1:30 PM to 3 or 3:30 PM)

      ... We need 2-3 people to remain at the rally site during
      the march (approx. 1:30 to 3 or 3:30 PM) to stay with the sound system.
      ... These people are also asked to help pick up any trash and discard it.

FUND-RAISERS: (1:30 PM to 3:00 or 3:30 PM)

      Help pass the buckets to make more rallies possible!
      We'd like 5-10 people to help collect donations.
      As noted above, no money can change hands in the park so
      donations will be accepted on the sidewalk and along the march.
      Time needed is at least 1:30 PM to 3:00 or 3:30 PM; there may also
      be a short training at the rally beforehand.

      We would like to get 10-15 people to help us with our action for
      the day which will be to gather signatures for local opposition
      to wars/sanctions/coups in Iran and Venezuela.

      Ideally these folks can arrive no later than 12:45 PM to
      get clipboards and instructions, and circulate through
      the crowd at the rally.

      If people can also stay until the end of the march (3:00 or 3:30)
      we may be able to get more signatures at the end.

      Thank you and we hope to see you on (and/or before) the 28th!
