Fresh off a jam-packed public town hall today in Portland (more on that later), Senator John Edwards just announced that he's going to attend the emergency veto rally organized by MoveOn.org.
Tonight's veto rally is at 5:15 p.m. at SW 9th and Jefferson, in front of the Portland Art Museum.
From the campaign's announcement, just released:
As you may have heard, MoveOn.org and a coalition of progressive groups are organizing emergency rallies in hundreds of cities nationwide, calling on Congress to stand firm in response to Bush's veto.
We just found out that there's a rally planned for this evening in Portland and John Edwards has decided to attend to add his voice to the movement. Please join us tonight at 5:15 PM at Portland Peace Square (South Park Blocks) on 9th and Jefferson (in front of the Art Museum) in Portland.
Here's the description of the event from the organizer: "We will be gathering at the Park Blocks to let Bush and the world know that his veto of the Provisional Funding Bill is unacceptable to the American people."
Here are the details:
When: 5:15 PM, Wednesday, May 2
Where: 9th and Jefferson (in front of the Art Museum)
Directions: We will meet at the South Park Blocks, in front of the Art Museum. You can get there by MAX or Metro. It is in Fareless Square. Parking is very limited downtown, especially at that time of day, so we suggest you take public transportation.
We hope you will be able to join John Edwards this evening in speaking out against this war!
