Impromptu Peace Demonstration and Shoe Collection

Zanne Sam from Bay Area CODEPINK was in in town with her CODEPINK TRUCK tonight as she drives across country to promote local action and encourage folks to come to D.C. for the March on Washington on January 27 and the CODEPINK actions that will continue there throughout February.

I'm putting together a VERY SHORT NOTICE action.

5 - 6 p.m.
CORNER OF GRANT & CAMPBELL

This will be a generalized BRING THE TROOPS HOME, IMPEACH, NO ESCALATION, BRING BACK HABEAS CORPUS type action with one small change...

Bring pairs of shoes to donate! Childrens, Teens, Men & Women's shoes are all needed.

We will be collecting these shoes for Sam to take to Washington for the Walk in Their Shoes action where thousands of pairs of shoes with the attached names of Iraqi Dead will be displayed.

Even if you can't stay for the entire protest, PLEASE come by and drop off shoes you no longer need.

Please DO NOT PARK in Bookmans, Coffee Exchange or other private property. There is plenty of street parking in the neighborhoods near this intersection.

And in Washington D.C.:





As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil
At the summons of war,
Let women now leave all that may be left of home
For a great and earnest day of counsel.
Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means
Whereby the great human family can live in peace...
Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress

As Violence Escalates in Iraq, Iraqi Woman Makes Rare Trip to the US to Speak Out for Peace

Eman Ahmed Khamas Will Speak in Tucson on April 11 about daily life in Iraq and the possibility of an impending civil war.

WHEN: April 11, 7 p.m.

WHERE: Unitarian Universalist Church, 4831 E. 22nd Street, Tucson, Arizona

WHAT: On April 11, 2006 in Tucson, Arizona Eman Ahmed Khamas will speak first-hand about the situation in Iraq, especially the escalation of violence that�s occurred since the bombing of the Golden Mosque in Samarra. Khamas arrived in the United States on March 5th with a delegation of Iraqi women who want to tell their stories to the American public and urge US and UN officials to create a peace plan to end the escalating cycle of violence.

Khamas is a journalist, translator and human rights activist who lives in Baghdad with her husband and two daughters. She is a member of the Women�s Will organization, which focuses on defining and defending women's rights outside of political party interests and opposing incarceration of women as hostages. Khamas regularly publishes articles on women�s conditions in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion, and has documented human rights violations committed by US and Iraqi forces. She is also involved in mobilizing emergency relief (medicines, food and clothing) for victims of the war, especially women and children living in refugee camps.

The Iraqi women�s delegation that Khamas is part of is promoting a Women�s Call for Peace that�s been signed by 100,000 women around the globe. The call urges a shift in strategy in Iraq, from a military model to a conflict resolution model. It requests the withdrawal of all foreign troops and foreign fighters from Iraq, negotiations to reincorporate disenfranchised Iraqis, full representation of women in the peacemaking process, and a commitment to women's equality in the post-war Iraq. The full text is available at www.womensaynotowar.org.

The Iraq war has cost the lives of tens of thousands of Iraqis (estimates range from 28,535 to over 100,000) and over 2,300 US troops. In this month of the three-year anniversary of the war, the country remains wracked by violence and threatened with the prospect of civil war, Iraqi civilians are suffering from a lack of basic services, including electricity and clean water, and women�s rights are being eroded.

Progressive Fast for Peace

Nancy Hill, Tucson
Fasting Midnight to Midnight

I will be fasting for those 24th hours, and meditating throughout the day, as a woman, mother, wife, daughter, and sister in solidarity with all the women, the world over who have been, or had all or part of their families, injured or destroyed by this war. I do this from the sincere belief that directed individual thought and action does bring about change. Namaste.

Thursday, March 9
Jill Gwin

Jill, recently returned from a trip to Nigeria, believes with her heart and soul that women working together around the world can bring peace to our planet. She will be fasting for this peace effort.
Sunday, March 12
Kaitlin Meadows

I join with you and all women on our swirling blue planet to exalt peace, love, compassion, and hope. I will fast Sunday, March 12, in dedicated consciousness for Code Pink Tucson and in celebration of Peace. My love to all others on this path of Peace, Unity, Forgiveness, and Exaltation!
Molly McKasson
Sunday, March 12th

I would like to fast for the immediate withdrawl of all US troops from Iraq, for the help of the UN to bring a beginning of stability to the suffering people of this tragically devastated country.

Tuesday, March 14
Molly McKasson will also be fasting on this day.
Read her statement above -- from Sunday , March 12th.
Thursday, March 16
Cathy Howard

I am fasting today to express my solidarity with people, especially women and children, who suffer the ravages of war. I especially condemn the atrocities committed by the US as part of this country's invasion of Iraq. Since I cannot stand vigil for No More Deaths, I also send my intentions to those victims of US policies who die in our desert. This is our backyard.

Friday, March 17
Lorena Howard

I will be fasting in support of Fernando Suarez del Solar. His son Jesus Alberto Suarez del Solar died in Iraq. His father is walking on a 241 mile quest for Peace from Tijuana to La Paz California. see web site www.guerreroazteca.org for more information. Let the loud voice of the chicana be heard!! No to War, Bring home our sons and daughters!
Saturday, March 18
Laurie from Tucson writes:

I am bringing together a small group of women in an activity at my home in the spirit of the fast discussed below. At 4 pm, we will have a fire and a circle of conversation, poetry, song in commemoration of women and children who have died in Iraq since the beginning of the war.

Lucy Silva-Stump

My 18-year-old son enlisted in the US Army under a "deferred enrollment" program, allowing him six months to prepare before he had to report for duty. During that period of time, the situation in Iraq escalated, and he joined my husband and I in a local peace march that spring. March 18, 2003, the day Bush declared war in Iraq, was his day to report, and it was a grim ride to Phoenix, where my husband and I dropped him off. He signed up for three years of active duty, so will have completed that term on this day -- unfortunately, his unit just left for Iraq in January for a six-month tour. He is stationed in Tikrit, his spirits are good, he says he would probably do the same thing if he had to do it over again as he is earning money for college and he will be ready to attend when he gets out. Of course I am praying for that to become a reality for him and the many other young people who enrolled for that purpose. I am visualizing guardian angels over his base and over the country of Iraq.


ABOUT FASTING
In the tradition of the strong, courageous women activists of the past, pinkly inclined women (and men) of the Tucson area will be engaging in Progressive Fast for Peace.

A progressive fast is a coordinated fasting that takes place over a specific time period with different individuals fasting at any given time, and hopefully with at least one individual fasting at all times. The progressive fast for peace being coordinated by CODEPINK Tucson will occur between March 8th and 18th, International Women�s Day and the 3rd Anniversary of the start of the Iraq War.

People wishing to participate should send an email at pinktucson (at) cox.net to sign up for a 24 hour �shift.� Please let us know who you are, why you are fasting, and when you will fast. Also, please let us know if you do NOT want your name listed on the site as a participant.

Traditional reasons for fasting include cleansing and healing. Some participants in this fast will symbolically and spiritually link their personal action to the cleansing and healing that our country needs to do in order to end this war and heal the wounds it has inflicted. Others will fast to draw attention to the hungers, both physical and spiritual, that the war has inflicted. Of course the spirit of our suffragette foremothers, those iron jawed angels, and the courage they showed during their hunger strikes will be in our minds as we experience the extremely minor inconvenience of our one day fasting.

Some will fast purely as a bold statement against the continuance of the presence of our troops in Iraq. The reasons will all be heartfelt and as unique as every individual who has been lost to this horrific and unjust war.
There are many types of fasting and ways to fast. We recommend you read the Wikipedia article on the subject of fasting. Most people who are not experienced with fasting should speak with their physicain if they have any questions or concerns. Nearly all short-term fasts include liquids.

Bush is in Arizona, again!

Bush only touched down here in Tucson today so as to be able to have WE THE PEOPLE PAY FOR HIS TRIP to Phoenix to appear at the Kyl Fundraiser tonight. The RNC should have paid for this. The Fundraiser was planned long before the closed Military base "appearance." He is robbing us blind! He is bankrupting our nation! He is selling our Children's futures to the highest bidder and having us pay for it. The $1,000 a plate dinner with a $25,000 option that gets the contributor up close and personal with Bush should have paid for this entire trip not the taxpayers.



Pink Fairy Godmother Readying "Balls."


You are Invited to Come to Phoenix
to Help the Pink Fairy God Mother
Give the Democrats
Some Cojones --or Ovaries!
Bring Your Pink Tutu!

The Democratic National Committee
meets in Phoenix, AZ
Thurs. to Sat., Dec. 1st - 3rd
at the Wyndham Hotel.
(We�ll be in the San Carlos Hotel.)

During the day we will engage in creative protest, be the media, and generally be an unavoidable reminder (a pink burr under the ol' saddle) to the Democrats that We Want the Troops Home Now! and that we will not support any one who is part of the middle-of-the-road Republican Lite Corporate War Machine. During the evenings there will be many opportunities to meet with other Regional CODEPINK Folks as we create collective strategy and tactics for local groups over the next year. There will also be opportunity to attend events such as the Progressive mixer on Thursday night where you just might run into Maxine Waters, John Conyers, Tom Hayden or Cindy Sheehan.

Community Earth Day

A Pink World is a Sustainable World!

Thanks to all those folks who stopped by the Pink Booth in Himmel Park on Saturday April 23. It was a great day of music, family activities, and just a generally great (although blustery) day in the park with other people who care about our community and planet.

Also a huge thank you to all the great folks at the Center for Biological Diversity who made it a wonderful first that we hope will be the start of a tradition of community Earth Day celebrations.

END THE WAR IN IRAQ!
SAVE SOCIAL SECURITY!

TWO CODEPINK EVENTS COUNTERPOINT BUSH VISIT TO TUCSON

In order to call attention to the significant majority of women (and brave men who are not afraid of the vital energy of these women) who recognize that the policies of the Bush administration are destroying women's rights and the economic safeguards and social programs that protect the most vulnerable in our society for decades as well as hastening devastating climatic change on the planet that gives us life, CODEPINK Tucson facilitated two events on March 21, 2005 in Tucson, Arizona. These were only two of many protests staged to counter the spin of the Bush Propaganda Machine as it descended on Tucson to sell the destruction of Social Security.

Between 6 and 10 a.m. women (and men) in Tucson stood together on major street corners with signs and banners during the Monday morning drive to work to call attention to perspectives on significant issues of the day that are not represented in corporate media coverage. This action took place on street corners and overpasses chosen by individual participants throughout Tucson.

The second event facilitated by CODEPINK Tucson Women was an invocation of the Divine Feminine by women wearing masks created by artist Lauren Raine that depict female deities from cultural pantheons around the Earth. The women left from The Muse, 516 N. 5th Street, at 9 a.m. and proceeded down 6th Street to Stone then on to Congress Street over the pedestrian walkway downtown to then turned on to Granada and circled the TCC with creative peace of women's energy. The women wore masks representing, Kali, Spider Women, Green Tara, Gaia, Lilith, and Isis and were lead by the Virgin of Guadalupe. They carried a banner that read, The Great Mother says, No!

Two women from the Great Mother procession later dropped a banner over the retaining wall near the drive at the west side of the TCC that read, Bring The Troops Home Now. This banner provided a back drop to over 1000 protesters who greeted the Bush motorcade with hoots, boos, and gestures.

You can see photos from the actions on Saturday March the 19th and Monday the 21st at http://macfocal.com/tucson_protests.html.

Masks made by Lauren may be viewed at Rainwalker Studio


Future likely actions... although we had to cancel our Fossil Fools Day actions there will be more events in the near future.

If you have gotten this far on the page... you are already a CodePINKer as you are thinking PINK... and CODEPINK is an attitude not an organization. Much stuff is going on -- banner drops -- occasional Friday evening gatherings -- and some "pink slip" deliveries as well as just generally using women';s approaches to building local and global peace through traditional women's methodologies. So come to an action, event, or meeting and network with other women interested in building a better world by waging peace.

Questions. Email us. Be sure to check our calendar at the left for specifics.



Just a few of the things we were up to between September and December of 2004:

NO AFTA (Andean Free Trade Agreement) Actions came together beautifully under the ad hoc No AFTA Alliance. We participated in most actions and events and coordinated a couple too (special thanks to the Tuesday Night Corporate Personhood Cohort!!!) including: The Global Unemployment Line that highlighted the unemployment crises which so-called Free Trade (rather than fair trade) has created around the world and a Banner Drop at Old Main and off various walkways and parking structures at the U of A.


We marched in the Veterans Day Parade with the Tucson Veterans for Peace.

Tucson CodePINK joined forces with other CodePINKs from around the region to raise/maintain awareness of Peace Issues as the Third Presidential Debate came to Tempe, Arizona on October 13th. CodePINK Tucson was highly visible at the protest march on the afternoon of the debate. We also helped People for the American Way organize a several hundred people long Unemployment Line that spanned blocks through Tempe. And we also participated in the "Joe Six-Pack" protest of the far too exclusive, secretive and anonymously corporate sponsored post debate gathering for Govenor Napolitano and Senator McCain at the Mission Palms in Tempe.

OF COURSE YOU DO!


Actions for the Week of the 3rd Presidential Debate


CODEPINK ACTIONS


CODEPINK TUCSON sends out tons and tons of Pink Kudos to PHOENIX AND L.A CODEPINK for organizing this historic event!

Codepink will be participating in some of the events of The October 13th Alliance of Arizona has put together in a fabulous calendar of activities for the week.! Not to be missed! click on the link "October 13th Week of Events" once you are on the site.

However our Code Pink Activities will kick off on Sunday evening with a meet/greet gathering for CodePink members* on Sunday night to plan actions for the week and energize each other with creativity from the entire western region of the US. CODEPINK is planning a full schedule for the 11th, 12th, and 13th.

Check back on our homepage's calendar for precise meeting location info.


* Don't worry about "membership" -- if you have gotten to this page, you are already a CodePINKer as you are Thinking PINK! CODEPINK is an attitude not an organization. Just come up to Phoenix and help plan actions for the week.

On Monday at 7pm there will be a showing of CODEPINK activist Patricia Foulkrod's new film "The Ground Truth," a documentary on the realities faced by the returning American soldiers and the true human cost of war. Please visit the film website.

Tuesday we hope to travel around the Tempe/Phoenix area and do some "voter encouragement" as well as participating in the Stop Recruitment and the Military Draft Rally & March.

On Wednesday the 13th, as the nation focuses on the final presidential debate in Tempe, CODEPINK will join The Unemployment Line: a unique protest spotlighting the disastrous effects of current economic policies. Imagine CODEPINK members in our pink slips � joined by hundreds of other activists� waving pink slips and forming a symbolic unemployment line at the debate site, with the nation watching. We will draw the country�s and the candidates� attention to failed economic policies that have left over 8 million Americans unemployed and resulted in the net loss of over a million jobs since 2001.






The October 13th Alliance

has arranged a Convergence Space
-- a gathering space -- for the various actions
that will happen through the week of the third Presidential Debate
which is the Lot of the Gentle Strength Co-op.




Convergence space

Our convergence space will "open" on Friday, October 8th and will be
open everyday at 9 am until the 14th. This space is located across
the parking lot from Gentle Strength Co-op in Tempe (234 West University
Drive, NW corner of University and Ash Avenue). This is the place to
get information about events, actions, trainings, and how to plug into
this mobilization.


The co-op is not charging us to use this space. We only ask that you
buy lots and lots of food from the co-op and donate books to the co-op
library.


Some of the many things you will find at the convergence space include:
  • - a welcome center
  • - information about housing, legal, medical and community events
  • - Indymedia center
  • - trainings
  • - workshops
  • - art/puppet making
  • - a healing space

Please register now to be a part of our:

Activist Training Boot Camp:
September 11, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
At The Quaker House Meeting Hall

It will be a full day of context, connections, and creativity.
You�ll learn a little about us, make some new friends, and, we hope, begin to feel a revitalized and re-engaged part of the peace community!

We�re delighted to open our event with keynote speaker Elaine Higginbotham. Elaine, known to some as "Ellie May" is a KXCI & Access Tucson media personality and Vice President of WomanKraft Art Center. She is a spirited activist and her topic will be "Transforming Righteous Anger Into Peaceable Solutions.�
Elaine remarks..."Doesn't that title sound serious? Well, get ready to laugh! Keeping our sense of humor is empowering to our spirits when the doom and gloom of the greedheads threaten to sap our strength."

The event will include:
Four basic sessions during the day, all with an emphasis on revitalizing our personal creativity and using it in our work for peace.

Music of the Revolution:
A brief history of women who have made political music and how they�ve used it to change minds and hearts. We�ll reclaim some peace music of our own and have a few musicians & singers share their music with us. Musician extraordinaire Lindianne Sarno will be our facilitator.

Art of the Revolution:
A brief history of women who have made political art and a hands-on opportunity for us to create some peace posters and fliers of our own. Graphic artist Tina Rouhoff (who walked across America last summer to protest the war in Iraq!) will be our facilitator.

Culture As A Part of the Revolution:
Penelope Simmons, originator of the Odyssey Storytelling series at the Wilde Playhouse, Barbara Mocking, Director of the New Kiva Puppet Theatre, poet Erin Whitfield, and various artists will share their work and vision with us.

Self-Nourishment:
We will close with affirmations, relaxation techniques, and ways to replenish our spirits and recharge our energies.

Nuts & Bolts:
*We�ll provide a lite lunch and healthy snacks on site and at noon we will be treated to music, poetry, and performance art.
*The cost for the whole day of activity and creativity is $10�payable in advance to reserve your space. Please send name, address, phone and e mail contact info with your check today to:

Please come and share the fun!
