(NOTE: 3rd Sunday, Not 2nd Sunday this month)
Codepink GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE PEACE WALK!
NO GUNS, NO BOMBS, NO WAR!
YES to GUN CONTROL, NO to Global ARMS SALES!
The U.S. is the most violent nation on the planet today, occupying and/or regularly dropping bombs on nations in Asia and Africa, and forcing it’s toxic military bases on foreign lands against the will of the people. It is also the largest weapons dealer in the world, profiting from the sale of arms at the expense of global stability and peace.
At home, we have the worst incidence of random mass shootings, and police violence in the world. It seems a no brainer to conclude that violence is not the answer. As mass shootings continue to occur more and more frequently, we say ENOUGH!
NO GUNS, NO WAR, NO VIOLENCE!
“There is no way to peace,
peace is the way!” A.J. Muste
GUN CONTROL NOW!
DE-MILITARIZE OUR EARTH!
DISARM the POLICE!
We will be asking visitors on the bridge to sign a petition demanding background checks on all gun purchasers. Will you join us?
11:45 am: Gather at the plaza at the SF end of the eastern walkway of the Golden Gate Bridge. Arrive early for best parking. We’ll take some photos while waiting for folks to show up.
Noon: Walk on the eastern walkway, from the south end to the middle of the bridge,
where we’ll stop and hold a 15 minute vigil, showing motorists our signs (Berma-shave style,
at least 10 feet between each sign/person). From there, we’ll return to our starting point in the plaza at the south end of the bridge.
1:30 pm: Photo ops and Closing Circle/Open Mike (no megaphone)
on the SF side after the bridge walk. We’ll probably be finished by 2:00.
Some signs provided, or bring your own. Dress warmly. It’s often chilly and windy on the bridge.
EVERYONE WELCOME. BRING YOUR FAMILY!
