Message from CODEPINK for Peace:
While we vigil at Beale to protest drone warfare, we also occupy Beale AFB every month to oppose militarism and global militarization. This month please join us as we try to underline the threat militarism has on the health of our mother earth and say "WAR IS NOT GREEN!"
Depleted uranium, nuclear weapons, agent orange, toxic waste dumps, white phosphorous, napalm....the list is endless.....not to mention the grossly excessive use of fossil fuel that contributes to climate change. The U.S. military uses more fossil fuel than any other institution on the planet! And our soldiers suffer too.....high cancer rates, birth defects in their children, sterility, etc., etc.
Dress yourself up in GREEN clothing to emphasize the point, or come as you are....but we welcome large signs and banners to help with the messaging.
We will also be honoring and welcoming home: Bowe Bergdahl....
one more soldier who had the courage to listen to his conscience and act!
WELCOME HOME BOWE!
Join us in uniting for Peace,
Shirley, Flora, Barry, Michael, Pamela,
Janie, Fred, John, Catherine, and Toby
