A community forum featuring Mike German of the Brennan Center for Justice and a local panel speaking on FBI spying and Portland's local efforts to keep the police from dedicating full-time officers to the Task Force. The presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A. Mr. German formerly worked for the FBI and quit after trying to blow the whistle on "deficiencies in FBI counterterrorism operations." The April 17 event is free and open to the public. For information on the event write to info@aclu-or.org . A poster for the event can be found at http://www.pjw.info/JTTFforum041718flyer.pdf

Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group is co-sponsoring the Friday, March 16 Portland Peaceful Response Coalition (PPRC) Friday Rally with the theme "Iraq 15 Years Later: Forever War?." The rally begins at 5 PM at Pioneer Courthouse Square, SW Yamhill and Morrison, with a march around downtown beginning at about 5:20 PM. The US invaded Iraq on March 19, 2003. Even though most of the troops were withdrawn in 2011, they never left completely. Even with the US' war against the Islamic State (August 2014-present) being declared a victory with the devastating US/Iraqi military attack on Mosul, there are now over 5000 troops in Iraq as "advisors," drone and conventional aircraft bombings, and, with the world's largest embassy, an unending occupation. Although March 2018 marks 15 years since the Iraq War began, one also can look at January 1991-- the start of "Gulf War Part 1"-- as the start of what has now been over 27 years of US hostilities in Iraq. Even though candidate Donald Trump condemned the 2003 decision to invade and attack Iraq, in 2017 President Trump told NBC: "We should've kept the oil when we got out"-- signalling his long-term intentions for US presence there. Join the rally to say "no more war-- bring all the troops home now!"

To mark another year of the now-nearly empty prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Portlanders will hold a visibility action at the east end of the Hawthorne Bridge (SE Hawthorne & Grand) on Thursday, January 18, 2018, from 3:30 to 5:30 PM. The event is titled "Guantanamo: Serving Injustice for 16 Long Years" and will feature the 12-foot-tall "Tower of Peace" strung with banners reading "CLOSE GITMO NOW-Stop Inspiring Terror." The prison now holds under 50 people (from a height of nearly 800 at one point), and is widely considered to be a stain on the United States' claimed support for due process, human rights and the rule of law. Congress blocked President Obama from closing the prison, while President Trump has promised to fill it up with "bad guys." Trump called for the man who ran over pedestrians in New York in November to be sent to Guantanamo (even though it is far-fetched to call him an "enemy combatant"). Last year this action was held despite the massive snowstorm that hit Portland on January 11. Our commitment to shutting down Guantanamo continues undeterred. The event is being cosponsored by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group, Veterans For Peace Chapter 72, Portland Close Guantanamo Coalition, and others. Groups who would like to join as a cosponsor (at no cost, though donations are gladly accepted), or for more information, contact Peace and Justice Works at 503-236-3065 or iraq@pjw.info.
