    *** PRESS RELEASE ***

    Delegates from the Portland Venezuela Peace and Media delegation are hosting a fundraiser to support their upcoming trip to Venezuela. The event will feature two students from Evergreen College who just returned from a trip to Venezuela. Also featured will be a film by Joe Anybody, Cascadia to Caracas, the first part of his two-part series.

    The trip’s focus is part of a mission to introduce US peace activists to the variety of organizational forms and actions that the Venezuelan people have built to achieve their political objectives. By learning from these examples, anti-war activists will be better prepared to creatively respond to the challenges that lie ahead in the US.

    “This trip is an important connection to peace and justice activities in an area that has seen an increase in community organizing” says Joe Anybody, one of the delegation’s videographers who will be filming the delegation in action. “ In documenting the delegation’s trip, I want to share what I learn in Venezuela with the people in Portland when I return. I want to capture and share the organizing struggles of the people of Venezuela. I’m excited to see firsthand what’s going on and to report back.”

    Joe Anybody is a Portland independent media videographer who has been making films about human rights issues for over 5 years. He films activism of groups such as Seriously Pissed-Off Grannies, Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, PDXpeace, Peace and Justice Works, PPRC, Individuals For Justice, Portland Copwatch and other important human rights events in the Pacific Northwest.

    The Portland Venezuela Peace and Media delegation is part of a larger delegation to Venezuela hosted by PCASC, the Portland Central America Solidarity Committee. PCASC, a Portland-based nonprofit organization, has been working for peace and justice in the Portland area and in solidarity with Latin America for over 30 years,
