by Mary Ryan-Hotchkiss // Part of the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions
Nonviolence workshop with Rivera Sun, trainer. Presentations by 5 nonviolence activists from Poor People’s Campaign, Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice, Holy Land Ministry and their Film Festival Human Rights in Palestine, Oct 5 – 7, SOA-Watch. We sang songs, built drums and made plans for future campaigns. A rally at the end of the day was for Keeping Families Together, No on 105 (anti-sanctuary ballot measure), Peace, etc. By combing this with a Maryknoll Affiliate gathering we had people from Chicago, New Mexico, Washington and California participating, in addition to more than 40 people from throughout the Portland OR area. On a map we put notes where we were globally connected.
