Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

You won't need much!

What will YOU need to come to D.C.? Not much! We have:

PLACE: We have a 4 month permit to occupy Freedom Plaza at 13th & Pennsylvania Ave!

FOOD: We have Food not Bombs keeping the food tent open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

WATER: We have a large water truck!

BATHROOMS: We have portapotties, lots of toilet paper, many businesses with bathrooms close by

HOUSING: We have an almost empty women's tent, we have other tents with room for one or two

HOUSING: We have the CodePINK truck/camper for those who need more shelter

LEGAL: We have lots of awesome lawyers & legal support

MATERIALS: We have banners, paint, art supplies, posters

DONATIONS: We even have some donations - we can always use more, especially as the rains are starting!

MEDICS: We have a First Aide tent open 24/7

MEDIA: We have TONS of media - main stream, alternative, international, local!!!!

HEARTS, MINDS & SPIRITS: We have plenty of hearts, minds, & spirits

So what do you need? Bring as little as possible, bring the possessions you don't mind sharing, most of all, bring BODIES! You'll need (altho we'll help supply you if you can't lug stuff): warm clothes (altho the weather has been hotter than California, it rained a little today, warm, pleasant sprinkles!), water bottle, cup, plate, spoon/fork/chopsticks, rain gear.

What do we need??? BODIES!!! BODIES!!! BODIES!!! Womyn, as well as men of color are VERY under-represented here! Bring your fierce activist self, your fighting spirit, your determination to change our country - before we drop yet another bomb, before we invade yet another country, before we spend another billion on wars and occupations!

So PLEASE get on the bus, the train, the plane and come to D.C. NOW!

p.s. This is the time we could REALLY use a CodePINK Activist House again! maybe you know someone who would like to jump in and contribute in this way? Take advantage of the buyers market? Anyone want to work on this?
