REPORT BACK: October 26, Tuesday:  Occupy Beale Drone Base, Marysville, CA

We had a hugely successful day.  The evening before, Susan, Sharat and I prepared, painted and cut the life-sized cardboard figures representing the victims of the Ahmadi Family U.S. drone massacre that took place in Kabul on August 29, 2021.

The Future of Food is in our Hands.

The Local Peace Economy joins with people around the earth to celebrate world food day and help to end hunger in our local communities. In a vast world of almost 8 billion people we all need food, survive because of it and derive happiness from it. Yet profound inequalities exist in our global society when comes access to food. Three billion people suffer from food insecurity and cannot afford healthy diets, while overweight and obesity continue to increase worldwide. In the environment many farming practices are unsustainable and have led to land degradation, depletion of nature resources, water loss and less food production at higher cost.

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!
