Herschel Soles commented upon arrival at the Random Order Cafe in the midst of a downpour Thursday evening, that the heavy rain discouraged a larger attendance. Nonetheless he and Your Intrepid Reporter met and agreed that the Chapter will make a concerted effort to support the “Shut Down Guantanamo” demo at the east end of the Hawthorne Bridge, 3:30 in the afternoon of Monday, 11 January 2016.
We will also collaborate to enlarge the speakers’ list of the War Resisters’ League, when they visit local high schools to counter-recruit.
P.S. added later: The Portland Peaceful Response Coalition members Scott and Rob came up with a new chant for the Friday at Five Afternoon Anti-War Witness at Pioneer Courthouse Square [an occasion of which is pictured, above], the following day:

Won’t Bring Safety, Won’t Bring Peace
