Portland Pioneer Square Die-In

 

Attended by about 150 people, the Die-In at Pioneer Square on Saturday, January 6, 2007 honored the 3000 U.S. soldiers and 650,000 Iraqis who have died in Iraq.

After a few brief words about the reason for the gathering, the moderator said that, though these symbolic events are necessary, people must do more than this to exert their will.

The Moderator urged everyone present to follow through and contact their representative and let them know their feelings about this Occupation.
