Report: July 4th CODEPINK Bannering to DEMILITARIZE at Home & Abroad!
Report Back: East Bay, July 4th 2020 Bannering.
By Eleanor Levine & Toby Blomé
Drawing attention to the connection between the need for demilitarization both at “Home and Abroad,” we displayed DEFUND the POLICE and DEFUND the PENTAGON banners in both directions to motorists in Berkeley, CA, on the I-80 pedestrian overpass. One side was accompanied with a large DEMILITARIZE banner, helping to tie the urgent needs together. Money for Human Needs Now! At 10 am when we arrived, 10 supporters were waiting to help banner. It was truly amazing! We stayed for over two hours enjoying the glorious weather-perfect morning while “communicating” with passersby and motorists. Eleanor and Toby, holding the fort for the 2nd hour, passed the time playing crossword puzzles and Swedish folk music on nyckelharpa, respectively. Hopefully we’ll be back soon….JOIN US! Bring your instruments!
