CODEPINK Memorial Day PEACE Car-avan & Rally

CODEPINK Memorial Day PEACE Car-avan & Rally

Report back by Eleanor & Toby     

Photos by Leon Kunstenaar, unless otherwise stated.

A Pinked-Up 15 car CODEPINK car-avan marked Memorial Day 2020 with  “HONOR the DEAD, END WAR” messaging, traversing through the streets of  Sausalito, across the Golden Gate Bridge, along the windy streets of the Presidio (a former army base), past its veteran’s cemetery, exiting at Lombard Street to our final destination, California Senator Diane Feinstein’s Pacific Heights mansion. The Gandhi Mobile played the “caboose,” and Eleanor played the U.S. Bride Wedded to War!  We were joined by another dozen people for a rally, challenging Feinstein to support Americans and all other people around the world by ending war, cutting the military budget, and ending sanctions. We implored her to direct resources from the Pentagon to support legislation funding jobs, housing, food access, education, health care, and the growth of a sustainable green society. Read letter to Feinstein and House Speaker Pelosi below.  View more photos HERE by Indybay photographer Leon Kunstenaar. A colorful altar memorialized those killed by recent US Wars and the  costs of endless war. The senator was publicly “Pink-slipped again (for the umpteenth time), with a Giant Pink Slip, for her decades-long failed leadership on U.S. foreign policy. 

As Leon said in his Indybay report, here“The message of peace provided a welcome counterpoint to the militaristic Memorial Day rhetoric.”  

Many thanks to all those who attended, and for the many ways people contributed to this important effort.  GO TEAM!

Let us HONOR the DEAD by ENDING WAR

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!
