Join antiwar activist and scholar Joan Roelofs to discuss the Military Industrial Complex at the ground level with CODEPINK national Co-Director Carley Towne.  

During this webinar, we’ll discuss important themes and questions including:

  • What impact does our military establishment have at the local level?
  • How much has the border between civilian and military activities been blurred?
  • Which side is advancing in the war between civilization and militarization?

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!
