06/20 Tank protesters speak out to city council

Two Portland women involved in protesting an army tank at the Rose Festival Parade two weeks ago spoke today at the Portland City Council meeting.
Bonnie Tinker and Sara Graham each began their remarks by thanking Mayor Potter for his support for the immigrant community of Portland which was devastated by the recent I-C-E raid in which 175 undocumented workers were arrested.
Each then went on address their concern over the increasing militarization of the Rose Festival. They’ll be holding a peace protest this Saturday at 10 am at the Military recruiting center on Northeast 13th Street and Broadway.
