The Women of Code Pink Tell It Like It Is

When America voted for Barack Obama, America voted for change. As we watch the President Elect pull together his cabinet, full of members of the Clinton and Bush administrations, we want to remind him of the promises he's made to the American people. We want to remind him to keep the door open to voices that belong to the future, not just the past--to listen to the people who were right about the war in Iraq, right about the bail out, right about the many tragic failures of the Bush years.

Two weeks ago, we asked you to urge Obama to meet with leaders of the peace movement to talk about bringing our troops home. Thousands of you have added your voices to the petition; if you haven't signed yet, please do so now -- this petition is linked to change.gov and will be submitted directly to the Obama transition team.

  3. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for posting this!

    I've been so frustrated by this too.

  4. Libhom: I'm frustrated as well. Hardcore Obama supporters are not going to like me. But I'm not just going to roll over for any political leader. I'm probably always going to want to see more radical changes. Perhaps that's not realistic for this nation but I'm not going to stop voicing what I believe in.

  5. Sylvia: I saw Prop 8: The Musical over at Sherry's and tried to post it at The Peace Tree at exactly the same second that Poetryman was trying to post the exact same thing. It was quite a coincidence. So it's up at the PT as well; if anyone has not yet seen it. And also a clip and article about the movie Milk.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
