July 4th: INDEPENDENCE FROM WAR!!!
National CODEPINK is calling for local chapters to organize car caravans & other peace actions on July 4th: “Independance from War.”
East Bay CODEPINK & San Francisco CODEPINK are planning small group bannering actions.
We invite CODEPINK members in the Bay Area to organize their own bannering actions on July 4th.
Make your own banners, and choose the place & time…..(Or join us).
LET’S BREAK THE SILENCE on ENDLESS WARS…
Plaster the Bay with PEACE!
Choose a site with high visibility & banners with short messages & very LARGE LETTERS.
For banners: Old cotton sheets work best & water-based house paint or acrylic paint. More message suggestions below, or make up your own.
Please be COVID-safe: face masks and social distancing.
BRING: your own folding chair (optional), sun protection (hat, clothing, sunscreen), your own food & water, and your banners. Instruments and/or song sheets might help pass the time too and make it FUN!
