Pinkos On The March

Now it's time for action. Join CODEPINK in a national march to D.C. on January 27-29, to send a strong, clear message to Congress and the Bush Administration: The people of this country want the war and occupation in Iraq to end and we want the troops home now!

Women's Call for Peace: An Urgent Appeal

We, the women of the United States, Iraq and women worldwide, have had enough of the senseless war in Iraq and the cruel attacks on civilians around the world. We've buried too many of our loved ones. We've seen too many lives crippled forever by physical and mental wounds. We've watched in horror as our precious resources are poured into war while our families' basic needs of food, shelter, education and healthcare go unmet. We've had enough of living in constant fear of violence and seeing the growing cancer of hatred and intolerance seep into our homes and communities.

This is not the world we want for ourselves or our children. With fire in our bellies and love in our hearts, we women are rising up - across borders - to unite and demand an end to the bloodshed and the destruction.

Ninety minutes into the March, an AP report appeared in the CBC :

WASHINGTON (AP) - Thousands of anti-war protesters, energized by fresh congressional skepticism about the war in Iraq, were demanding a withdrawal of U.S. troops in a demonstration Saturday featuring a handful of celebrities such as Susan Sarandon and Jane Fonda.

United for Peace and Justice, a coalition group sponsoring the protest, said there has been intense interest in the rally since Bush announced he was sending 21,500 additional troops to Iraq. He termed the increase a "surge" aimed at quieting chaos in Baghdad, the Iraqi capital.

The group said its Internet site received more than five million hits this month, including 650,000 on Wednesday - the day leaders held a media briefing about the protest.

Next week of course, keep an eye on the post-March spin the media will offer as a response that is sure to include skewed numbers, reports of "riots" incited by godless, promiscuous feminists who want nothing more than to undermine the foundations of the American way of life. Or else they'll respond with nothing more significant than a deafening silence.
