Portland Says NO to the JTTF!
Rally with Speakers
Thursday February 24th Details to follow soon!
Outside City Hall and Council Chambers
1221 SW 4th Ave, Portland, OR 97204
This is an action planned to oppose the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) coming back to Portland.  The Portland City Council is scheduled to vote on the JTTF at 2pm on February 24th.  We are planning a lunchtime rally with speakers that day, then all interested persons should attend the council meeting and make public comments.  Because the Council just changed the time of the vote, we are in the process of changing event details in response.
Please contact City Council and tell them why we don’t want the JTTF in Portland.
They are elected officials and if they vote for the JTTF then we won’t vote for them!
