In Other Words needs our help

The message below from In Other Words, the LAST non-profit, feminist bookstore in the country. Please repost widely, even to contacts outside of Portland. This community resource has touched many lives in her long herstory. Let us support those who have supported us for so long. Thank you, Carla

Dear friends,

In Other Words, like so many of our fellow bookstores, has fallen upon incredibly hard financial times.  With the decline in our current economy, we have experienced severely decreased revenue.  If we are unable to raise $11,000 by the end of December, In Other Words will have to close its doors.

Iraqi Child Returns Home

Mustafa Abed, a boy from Fallujah, returned to Iraq today after a tearful goodbye at the Portland airport.

Mustafa's father, Ahmed, expressed his gratitude to the group No More Victims and the people of Portland for their help.  Last month, Ahmed spoke at the Portland Winter Soldier event, along with local Iraq Veterans Against the War.

No More Victims is a group committed to showing people in the US the human cost of the ongoing occupation in Iraq.   They bring children who were injured by US forces in Iraq to the US for medical treatment.

Cole Miller, a co-founder of the group, spoke on KBOO last year about No More Victims.  Ned Rosch and Maxine Fookson heard the interview, and were inspired to start a branch in Portland.  They worked tirelessly to raise money and support, and managed to bring Mustafa and his father to Portland on September 8th.
