Activists Rally on the International Day to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons

On Saturday, September 26 2020, activists joined the national movement to stand out for the elimination of nuclear weapons and to call on Congress to divest from war and invest in human needs.

From San Francisco, CA to Taos, New Mexico, to Chicago, IL activists demonstrated to draw attention to the billions of dollars we spend on nuclear weapons in our $740 billion Pentagon budget annually. Many protested outside of their Congressional representative’s office to hold them accountable for their vote on legislation to cut the Pentagon budget by 10%. Make sure you check here to see how they voted on historic legislation to cut the Pentagon budget by 10% and hold them accountable if they voted no!

Below are highlights from actions held across the country:

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!
