CODEPINK participates in September Swarm on BlackRock

CODEPINK was delighted to participate in the September Swarm demonstrations outside BlackRock offices.

In Los Angeles, the CODEPINK team held a car caravan to the BlackRock office in Santa Monica. CODEPINKers brought the message of BlackRock: Stop Making a Killing on Killing!

In San Francisco, Bay Area CODEPINKers participated in an evening light brigade shining a light on the need to defund war. Later in the month, Cynthia Papermaster led a group of CODEPINK activists, Nancy Mancias, Jackie Barshak, Lotus Fong, Grace Severtson, Mishwa, and Luck-key, in a participatory procession to BlackRock’s Financial District office along with climate change activists affiliated with the Stop the Money Pipeline movement.

Watch as CODEPINK NYC organizer Yousef Zakaria joins the online rally live from BlackRock’s Manhattan office.

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!
