Dear Friend,
In the wake of last week’s historic and thrilling election, author and CODEPINK comrade Alice Walker shared these wise words on Democracy Now.
"I think war is so incredibly backward, and I don’t think it’s intelligent, and it’s not sane. When I think of Obama leading us, I think that we elected someone who can actually have the humility to follow us, which is to say that the world is turning away from militarism. We’re sick of it. We are absolutely sick of starving children, raped women, abused populations. We are totally disgusted. And we have the power, really, to say, ‘No more.’"
CODEPINK is turning Alice’s rousing sentiment into our new War is SO Over campaign, bringing the message YES WE CAN End War to gatherings and rallies around the country. Click here to host a gathering or join one! Bring this sign up sheet with you to grow your community!
This Wednesday, CODEPINK joined The Yes Men to announce War is SO Over, distributing over a million parody copies of the New York Times that reported the end of war and other progressive triumphs such as a national health care system and a cap on CEO’s salaries. View or download the pdf. As one of the newspaper’s writers said, "We’ve got to make sure Obama and all the other Democrats do what we elected them to do. After eight years of hell, we need to start imagining heaven."
In DC this Thursday, citizen diplomats from CODEPINK took the lead in shaping the policies we want to see from the Obama administration and delivered apple pie, flowers and cards to the Cuban, Syrian, Venezuelan, Bolivian and Iranian embassies to declare "YES WE CAN Live in Peace."
You can bring YES WE CAN End War messages to your community by hosting or attending an End of Bush party
between November 7th and November 23rd. CREDO Mobile will reimburse you up to $100 for non-alcohol related expenses if you get at least 10 people to sign up online. To get started on hosting your own or joining an already planned party, click here. It’s a fabulous chance to celebrate with friends and neighbors and bring the hope and excitement of the election forward into effective mobilization for change!
You can also carry our YES WE CAN End War message to the inauguration
 next January! If you’d like to join CODEPINK and help us create a joyous pink presence for peace in DC, click here.
As Alice Walker reminds us, "We are the ones we’ve been waiting for." Let’s use our collective power to work for peace with renewed commitment and passion!
Yes We Can!

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them.
