ONE BILLION RISING 2021: RISING GARDENS CAMPAIGN

As always, we are teaming up with 1 Billion Rising for RISING GARDENS. Rising Gardens are a defiant creative call for revival, restoration and transformation. It is also a compassionate call for peace and justice.  One of the greatest injustices of our time has been the destruction and eradication of Mother Earth, parallel to the ongoing and escalating gender-based violence. We cannot keep the ongoing extraction of women’s labor and earth’s produce, with no gratitude to both. We must honor and protect the Earth and women in order for any future life to exist.

In 2021 Codepink’s campaign the Local Peace Economy is joining with 1 Billion Rising Gardens and launching Planting Seeds of Peace to help grow a local, peaceful, sustainable, scared mother earth future. We can start with growing a garden. Do you have a garden where you live or in your community? Have you wanted to start a garden and needed the community to give you the courage and support? Do you want to plant seeds of peace? Join us and be part of the movement. We will connect you to teachers, tools, secrets of success, and an engaged community. Why a garden?

Jan 25 World Says No to War on Yemen

 

CALL TO PROTEST INTERNATIONALLY

CodePink is joining other Anti-war, Yemeni and humanitarian organisations from across the world that are coming together to call an international day of action on January 25th 2021. Join us in DC, San Jose and other cities as we say No War on Yemen.

Since 2015, the Saudi-led bombing and blockade of Yemen have killed tens of thousands of people and devastated the country. The U.N. calls this the largest humanitarian crisis on Earth. Half the country’s people are on the brink of famine, the country has the world’s worst cholera outbreak in modern history, and now Yemen has one of the very worst COVID death rates in the world: It kills 1 in 4 people it infects. The pandemic, along with withdrawal of aid, is pushing more people into acute hunger. And yet Saudi Arabia is escalating its war and tightening its blockade.

The UN Calls for a COVID-19 Global Ceasefire.

UN Day 2020: Guterres reiterates call for global ceasefire to fight COVID-19 together

 Joe Biden if you truly want to be the president of healing join the call for a global ceasefire to combat COVID-19 and have America take a leadership role in bringing it under control at home and abroad. “Silencing the guns can not only support the fight against COVID-19, but also create opportunities for life-saving aid, open windows for diplomacy and bring hope to people suffering in conflict zones who are particularly vulnerable to the pandemic.”  UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in issuing his call for a ceasefire and adds “To silence the guns, we must raise the voices for peace.” Joe raise your voice for peace and reconciliation and give people hope for a better future.

On March 23rd, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued an urgent appeal for a global ceasefire in all corners of the world to focus together on the true fight – defeating COVID-19. He repeated the call at the start of the 75th UN General Assembly session in September. He called for the global ceasefire to become a reality by the end of the year.

She is Speaking Softly and She is Carrying Seeds

By Kelly Curry, Local Peace Economy Campaigner

“The great problem and the great challenge facing mankind today is to get rid of war…we have left ourselves as a nation morally and politically isolated in the world. We have greatly strengthened the forces of reaction in America, and inciting violence and hatred among our own people. We have diverted attention from civil rights. During a period of war, when a nation becomes obsessed with the guns of war, social programs inevitably suffer. People become insensitive to pain and agony in their own midst …” —Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

There is a garden where the fragrance of chamomile, spearmint, pineapple sage… lemon verbena and kale, passion fruit and cherimoya grow in an oasis of magic. It is life sustained by a little bit of water, California sun, love and intention, in the heart of an urban crime zone in West Oakland, deeply pocked by the ravages of what Peace activists call the “War Economy.”

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
