Join Us in DC Jan 27-29:
March 6, CODEPINK co-founder Medea
Benjamin was arrested, along with peace mom Cindy Sheehan, Gold
Star Family member Missy Beattie, and Reverend Patti Ackerman, for
trying to deliver CODEPINK's Women
Say No to War petition to the US Mission to the United
trial of the "CODEPINK
Four" ended earlier this week--all charges were thankfully
dropped except for the ridiculous charge of trespassing on what
should be public property.
soon as the trial adjourned, the four women went right back to the
US Mission to deliver the very same petition. This time it was warmly
received (by two staff members who had testified against them just
a few days before!). If you'd like to know more about the trial,
Medea has written about the experience here.
tenacity of these four peace women exemplifies the spirit of CODEPINK.
We won't be intimidated by the powers
that be. We won't be discouraged by roadblocks or attempts to silence
our voices. We will keep showing up, we will keep speaking
truth to power, we will keep using our words and our actions to
say no to war, yes to peace.
you help us raise our voices for peace in 2007?
