In May 2017, CODEPINK’s Nancy Mancias joined the Christian Peacemaker Teams’ (CPT) small delegation on an educational tour of northern Iraq’s Kurdish region. The delegates met with women, LGBTQ and peace organizations, academics, and villagers affected by oil company Dana Gas and Turkey’s cross-border bombings. The rigorous and enriching tour provided a small glimpse into the lives of internally displaced Iraqis, Yezidis and religious groups in Iraqi Kurdistan. CPT has had a presence in Iraq since October 2002, first in Baghdad and since November 2006 in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Cost: $3200 US

From our National Site

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!
