Divest from War Coalition Digest – February

BarakaPledges.jpg

Dear Supporters,

Your Divest from the War Machine coalition is working hard and picking up steam. The pressure is growing on Congresspersons to divest from war! Now we’re asking our mayors to divest from war. We created a pledge specifically for mayors to show us their willingness to work on divesting their cities and towns from the war machine. But first, we need to get the word out… Ras J. Baraka, the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, signed the pledge and agreed to lead other U.S. mayors!

Fill out this form if you want to help get your mayor working for peace.

Yes, you could say I’m trying to put lipstick on a pig. 2018 was a year of whiplash, a never-ending series of assaults on our environment, immigrants, people of color, Muslims, Jews, the poor, international law.

LOCAL PEACE ECONOMY: DISPATCHES FROM US/MEXICO

WHY ARE THEY AFRAID OF JAKELIN?

By Kelly Curry

Right now I am standing at the edge of the sea…where the country known as Mexico begins and the US…Turtle Island…ends.

Jutting out into the wild, bluish grey waters, teeming with dolphins..seals..surfers..
LIFE is a wall…the end of a very long wall, a clumsy interruption to the beauty of open, turbulent, wild beauty.

The tinnish looking structure is a misplaced ornament of ignorance, a testament to human kind’s auto-immune disorder in the war against itself. It stands in odd, pathetic juxtaposition to the freedom and life of the ocean—or as the Yoruba call her, Yemiya.

The whole affair is a quirky reminder of the inability of humans to grasp the inordinate opportunities of life, on a planet like Earth.

INVEST IN PEACE IN 2019

Support us in 2019!

As we divest from the war economy, we will continue to be strategic in sparking the transition to a Local Peace Economy. We don’t know what 2019 will bring, but given the current state of affairs, we know we will continue facing many challenges in the new year. With your help, we’ll be prepared for anything with our signature passion, playfulness and power.

Won’t you help us make 2019 the year that we, the people, turn the tides toward peace? Your support will help us continue to speak truth to power, raise awareness, build community, and ignite change. We thank you for your generosity, your commitment, your voice and your vision. 

As we gear up for 2019, scroll down to look back at some of our most exciting work in 2018. Thanks to your generosity, 2018 has been an incredibly effective year at CODEPINK!

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!
