Code Pink at Creston Park Thursday 5:30pm

We'll be doing our weekly street vigil/protest reminding commuters about Bush's lies, demanding we get US troops out of Iraq and asking for regime change at home!

Street sign action around bringing troops back from Iraq as they now appear to have been made into target
fodder by Bush's arrogant comment of "Bring 'em on." In addition they are now not allowed to complain about their circumstances or "dis" rumsfeld, lest they be subject to punishment. Nope...no first amendment
rights for those poor soldiers. There's another sign...."Free Speech for Soldiers." Sounds like they are the ones who need protecting.

Thursday 5:30 to 6:30 PM. Creston Park is on Powell and 42nd and there is shade along the street. It's about 2 blocks up from Safeway. Join us!

Does code pink allow men to participate in their protests? 22.Jul.2003 22:14

code pink guy

I've followed code pink, and I think they rock. They are organized, informed, and inspiring.

I'd love to come to some of the protests. Problem is - I'm a guy, and I'm concerned that I may not feel welcome.

So, I've got a simple question: Does code pink allow men to participate in their protests?

Yes! 22.Jul.2003 22:38

Pink Panther

Absolutely, we encourage men to join us on the street! You are more than welcome.

If its broke fix it

If the government continues to abuse the world, and non-violent civil protest hasn't ended this governments tyranny- why don't you challenge your adherience to pacafism and civil protest?
