Another Code Pink Tantrum: Operation Annoy Barbara Boxer

The Middle east is exploding. The deaths in Syria number in the hundreds of thousands- millions have been displaced. The atrocities committed by ISIS in Iraq rival those of the Third Reich. There have been reports of the beheadings of children, the wholesale slaughter of members of ethnic minorities, the selling of women and children into sexual slavery.

But Code Pink is determined not to let the  real suffering in the world distract you.

Only Gaza matters.

Did you miss that?


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!

They were not allowed in, as far as I could tell. They "occupied" the plaza in front of Barbara Boxer's office instead

One is not able to deal with the suffering of the world, just bits and pieces as one chooses. Nothing wrong with choosing Gaza as suffering to focus on.
