Code Pink

Code Pink is a grassroots solidarity initiative that opposes Western militarism in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and other countries around the world.

The goal of challenging U.S.-funded occupation around the world is to redirect militaristic budgets towards social programs like health care, education, and green living. By their own definition, the group is a “women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement.”

Code Pink is focused on U.S. funding of military action around the world. Getting involved with the organization's events or using their resources are a great way to support freedom and human rights everywhere from Pakistan to Thailand to Turkey.

Some of the resources you can find on the Code Pink website:

-campaign to Boycott Sodastream

-frequently updated blog called PINK Tank discussing campaigns, global events, and CODEPINK meetings

-a side projected called “Women Occupy: a space to connect, share learn and build

-Action Toolkit with tips and resources for all kinds of activist efforts

 

 

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
