grassroots and the s.f. school board
Not only did the commissioners unanimously adopt the resolution, they actually read the whole resolution out loud to everyone. Several commissioners spoke avidly about the costs of this war on their students, their classrooms, our state & country and the critical need for a powerful anti-war movement coming from the grassroots – and they identified themselves as the grassroots! Several times they expressed their appreciation and admiration for CodePINK and the work we are doing!
AND we didn’t have to wait until 10:55p.m. for their vote! We were actually outta there by 8:30!
Prior to our resolution being brought forth by Dan Greene, a 3rd grader spoke passionately about peace & love and the end to violence, unknowingly influencing hearts & minds at her young age, setting the stage for our resolution. Several CodePink women and one man addressed the board succinctly and eloquently, staying on topic (yeah!) and speaking from the heart.
Thank you to the Hardcore Team, and the several codepinkers who took the time to come to the meeting last nite, to stand in support, and to speak – many participating for the first time with CodePINK outside of demonstrations!
CodePINK in action cannot be stopped! It’s on to Pinole, Alameda, and Sacramento!!! Peace, Sam
