Report back on Bridge Peace Walk for Yemen:

 


12/9/18,  San Francisco
by Martha Hubert and Toby Blomé
Bay Area CODEPINK collaborated with the Yemeni Alliance Committee (https://www.facebook.com/YACofCalifornia/), 
for a very dynamic peace march and rally for Yemen on the Golden Gate Bridge on Sunday.  
What was different about this month’s peace walk is that the Yemeni Americans who joined us communicated clearly through their emotional expressions and passionate words the urgency and desperation that the people of Yemen now face.  Millions are on the brink of starvation from malnutrition directly because of the brutal Saudi-led and U.S. supported bombing campaign and endless war.  Our signs (“Yemen can’t wait!” and “Let Yemen Live!”), images of severely malnourished Yemeni children, and the child-sized coffins bearing the names of children killed by U.S. forces helped to accentuate this urgency.

GREEN NEW DEAL? YES: WAR, WEAPONS & PLANET DESTRUCTION? NO

Dear CODEPINK friends,
It was great to join the Sunrise Movement, DSA, 350.org, Sunflower Alliance, and other groups today rallying at Nancy Pelosi’s office to ask her to create a “Select Committee to establish a Green New Deal”. There were over 200 people at the rally, the majority under age 30. Renay, Susan, Elana, Jackie and I were there to support the Green New Deal demands and the 40 or so volunteers who risked arrest. They blocked the four entrances to the Federal Building for nearly 3 hours in the biting cold, but there were no arrests.

We joined the singing and chanting and held signs that said

GREEN NEW DEAL? YES
WAR, WEAPONS & PLANET DESTRUCTION?  NO

Report Back 4th Annual SHUT DOWN CREECH

 
Sept. 30 – Oct, 6, 2018 
by Toby Blomé
4th Annual SHUT DOWN CREECH:
“STOP the Murder, STOP the War Crimes”
7 protesters arrested while blockading Creech Assassin Drone Base…Just a week later over75 Somali militants were killed in a single U.S. drone attack!
On Thursday, October 4th, as part of this fall’s CODEPINK weeklong anti-drone protest at Creech Assassin Drone Base, 7 protesters and a couple of supporters bravely stepped across the base entrance road to temporarily “halt” the cruel and illegal U.S. Air Force’s “remote killing machine” located in the beautiful Nevada desert. While holding large banners across the roadway, our voices repeatedly called out as loudly as we could muster: “STOP the murder, STOP the War Crimes……The People Demand Peace!

Invest in Green Bonds

The East Bay Regional Park District is the first regional park district in the nation to  issue “Certified Green Bonds” which are dedicated to projects that reduce greenhouse gases, mitigate for climate change, or provide other environmental benefits. “The Park district is happy to be a trailblazer on Certified Green Bonds” said Board Director and Board Finance Committee Chair Ayn Wieskamp. “Certified Green Bonds allow investors to put their money toward improving the environment while also benefiting from the tax advantages and stability of municipal bonds. Green Bonds are the new standard in environmentally friendly investing.”

Divest San Jose

CODEPINK SF Bay Area invites everyone to join CODEPINK’s campaign to tell their elected representative to divest from a war economy and to invest in a peace economy. Above is a photo of our CodePink / SJPJC delegation that met with Zoe Lofgren on Monday 6/18.  We asked her to commit to NOT accepting donations from weapons companies and the NRA. We expressed the hope that she would support the moves to peace on the Korean peninsula and continue working to end U.S. support for the Saudi coalition that is bombing Yemen. Thanks to the work of our local CODEPINK communities we getting a growing number of elected officials to refuse contributions from the NRA and the top five weapons manufacturers: Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Boeing and General Dynamics. Since these officials are constantly voting on issues related to military spending, these decisions must not be tainted by the corrupting influence of weapons lobbyists. Who are spending millions of dollars on lobbying and campaign funding to ensure that members of Congress pay more attention to them than to the general public. With the upcoming midterm elections, we are seeing the full force of this tsunami of cash washing over our electoral system.
