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

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.
