Military Fire-fighting Foam that is poisoning us all!
What in the world are they thinking?
Pat Elder, who has done extensive research on the U.S. Military’s use of a fire-fighting foam containing high concentrations of very toxic PFAS chemicals, is doing a 20 city Educational Tour throughout California in March.  PFAS poisoning has been linked to high rates of miscarriages, cancers and other serious illnesses in military personnel and civilian populations living on or near U.S. bases, here and abroad!  Please support this tremendous effort to educate us all about this horrific crisis and help us uncover the Pentagon’s grotesque and reckless cover-up.      www.MilitaryPoisons.org
 
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Attend one of the presentations/forums scheduled in California.  
 Note:  Bay Area events, March 14 – 22, are highlighted in PINK below.
 
Join a Military Base Protest at Travis and/or Beale AFB (March 16-18) 
  We need to help get this critical story out.  A large presence at the military bases can help with media coverage, as well as help us better educate military personnel about how they are victims of these reckless military practices that poison us all, causing life-threatening and chronic illnesses.  This is also a great way to help military folks to come over on the side of peace.

GREEN ECONOMY

PinkBridgeDivider

From our National Site

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!
