For Immediate Release

Anti-War groups stop Condoleeza Rice from coming to Portland

Members from Individuals For Justice, Veterans For Peace, PPRC, Code Pink, Oregon Progressive Party and others gathered at the Downtown Hilton to celebrate Condi's decision not to show up because of a planned protest. We received word yesterday that she had canceled her appearance at the Inaugural Portland Authors Luncheon. Security at the Hilton confirmed that the ex-Secretary of State decided not to confront protesters here in Portland. We stopped a war criminal from coming to our city, a small band of dedicated activists spent an hour in front of the Hilton just to make the point that it is not a good PR move for a charity or foundation to use the notoriety of war criminals to raise money, because many of us will raise hell. We are happy that Condi did not come to Portland to sell her book, we are happy that one war criminal was told to stay away and was so afraid of a peaceful, non-violent group that she did; We should smile! This is a huge victory for non-violence and ending the occupations.

Thanks to you who showed up, got up early and stood for peace. I know I was going to have coffee with many of you but my body said go home. I was wet, tired and do listen to my body when it tells me, enough!
