But Code Pink is determined not to let the real suffering in the world distract you.
Only Gaza matters.
Did you miss that?
ONLY GAZA MATTERS
Code Pink is planning another one of their shrill self-serving temper tantrums. California Senator Barbara Boxer is now in their cross-hairs. Sen Boxer, once desribed by Code Pink as "our beloved Senator Boxer" apparently isn't toeing their party line on Israel, and therefore must be made to suffer. The group that once wrote "We THANK Barbara Boxer yet again for being a true representative of the people and for standing up to the bullies in the White House and Congress" has turned on her.
Senator Boxer: Stop Funding Israeli Military Occupation of Gaza
Be sure to join Codepink this Tuesday, 8/19, at noon when we attempt to occupy Senator Barbara Boxer's Oakland Office, 70 Washington St., Jack London Square. Boxer is a leader in securing the $8.5 million/day the U.S. gives to the Israeli military for it's illegal, inhumane blockade of Gaza and murderous attacks on its population, mostly women and children. We ask her to join with Senator Patrick Leahy and Representative Keith Ellison in calling for an end to the blockade and to listen to her constituents who are saying "ENOUGH!"
Please forward widely, post to lists, let's get a big turnout for the media we expect to cover this gathering. Wear pink! Bring banners and signs or hold ours. Allies welcome!
