Corvallis Islamic Center to Hold Peace Rally This Weekend at Pioneer Square

Pioneer Courthouse Square

Exactly three weeks after weathering an arson attack, the Salman Alfarisi Islamic Center of Corvallis will gather for a peace solidarity rally at Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square this Sunday, Dec. 19 at 2 pm.

The square, of course, was the location of an alleged bomb plot late last month. The suspect in that case, Mohamed Osman Mohamud, occasionally attended the Corvallis mosque.

A press release from the Islamic Center encourages Muslim and non-Muslims to join the center's “condemnation of the heinous Pioneer Square plot and…all other terror attacks.”

More than two dozen organizations—including Christian, Jewish and Buddhist groups—have added their names to the sponsorship list for the event this Sunday.
