Syria protest Tuesday in Eugene

Citizens from Congressional District 4 will attempt to meet with the offices of Rep. Peter DeFazio, Sen. Ron Wyden and Sen. Jeff Merkley at 11 am Tuesday, Sept. 3, at their district offices at the U.S. Courthouse, 405 East 8th Ave.

“Activists are extremely concerned that the U.S. is about to enter yet another illegal, immoral aggressive war of choice, but are also outraged by the lack of communication from Congress,” reads a press release today from Leah Bolger, a U.S. Navy veteran and one of the organizers.

“When I called the offices of my elected officials, I was stunned to be told by staff that they didn’t know what position they (DeFazio, Wyden and Merkley) were taking,” says Bolger. “There is nothing on their respective websites, we’ve seen no op-eds or press conferences. It is completely unacceptable that these three have taken no position on an issue as serious as war.”
