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!

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!
