PORTLANDERS SAY "NO MORE US BOMBS ON IRAQ"
US Policy Stokes Flames of War from Libya and Israel/Palestine to
Pakistan and Ukraine
Saturday, July 26, 2014, 12:00 Noon, Terry Schrunk Plaza SW 3rd & Madison
At noon on Saturday, July 26, Portland area groups will gather
at Terry Schrunk Plaza, SW 3rd and Madison, across from Portland's
Federal Building, to raise the cry "No More US Bombs on Iraq."
As of July 9, President Obama had sent at least 800 US troops,
ostensibly "advisors," to Iraq. Although it is claimed they
will not engage in combat, there has already been talk of using
drones, cruise missiles, and Apache attack helicopters piloted by some
of these "advisors." The potential for the situation to engulf
a much broader conflict is heightened by the fact that Syria,
Iran, and Russia already have actively engaged
militarily in Iraq on the same side the US wishes to support, even
though the US' position on those countries' stance in next door
Syria's civil war is completely opposite.

Dear Target Galleria / Macy’s / Kitchen Kaboodle Store Manager,
As a person of conscience, I call on you to stop selling SodaStream carbonation devices
SodaStream devices are made in an Israeli settlement in occupied Palestine.
These settlements exploit Palestinian land, labor and resources.
They are illegal under international law and are obstacles to peace.

"We are doctors and scientists, who spend our lives developing means to care and protect health and lives. We are also informed people; we teach the ethics of our professions, together with the knowledge and practice of it. We all have worked in and known the situation of Gaza for years.
On the basis of our ethics and practice, we are denouncing what we witness in the aggression of Gaza by Israel.

As a former supporter of yours, I was angered and saddened to see your response to my concerns about the Gaza conflict. Your position is simply not good enough. It is cowardly and enables pointless Israeli violence. In view of the fact that you voted for S Res 498, I cannot view you as worthy of the distinguished leadership position that Oregonians have conferred on you.
Like many progressives, I worked hard for your election. I will now suspend my work and contributions on your behalf—you clearly don’t have the good of our nation in focus.
Your statement decries the deaths on both sides, but the resolution you signed (S Res 498) is a one sided travesty that places a US seal of approval on the ongoing Israeli occupation and oppression of the Palestinian territories and the ongoing war crimes that are the direct result of that occupation.
The truth is that Israel is the guilty party here. This is a war of choice by Israel. Your statement misinforms your constituents by blurring that reality.
