CODEPINK: Women for Peace

Seventy percent of Americans now oppose the war in Iraq yet the U.S. occupation
continues. We’ve signed petitions, called our representatives, and attended
vigils. We’ve rallied and marched locally and nationally. Yet after 5 years,
the war is still on. A coalition of Twin Cities activists believe it’s time to
raise the level of protest in response to an unjust war, military recruiters
who prey on our young people, and politicians who aren’t doing enough to stop
it.

Civil Disobedience Training and Organizing Meeting
Saturday March 22 at 3:30 p.m. at Mayday Books. 301 Cedar Ave. S, Minneapolis.
(Located below Midwest Mountaineering and The Hub Bike Co-op, near the West
Bank side of the University of MN campus)

Women suffragists, trade unionists, civil rights and peace activists have all
used civil disobedience thoughout our nation’s history to win many of the
rights and freedoms we enjoy today. Come to the training to learn more about
this important tactic. Bring your questions and concerns. Activists who have
organized and participated in CD multiple times will lead the training.

A potential action is planned for Thursday, March 27. More details will be
available at the training. If you can’t make it but would like more info,
respond to this email. A permitted student rally and march is already
scheduled for March 27 at noon at Coffman Union (University of MN)

Hope to see you there!

Subversive parking tip: Park in the lot next to the mountaineering store. Go to the mountaineering store and by a carabiner. Get your parking ticket stamped. The carabiner will cost you less than the parking, and you get a carabiner.

Don’t tell anyone where you heard this, and if you say it was from me, I’ll, like, totally deny it.

    I am not sure I understand why you are making the mountaineering store pay for your parking to attend a meeting on Civil Disobedient training? It is a mountaineering store not an Army surplus store. Sorry I don’t get it.

    Jim: You radicals are so serious … The part about the carabiner is a joke!

    Plus, if you are a real radical, you will arrive on a bike, not in a car, no matter what the weather. Minneapolis has more bikes per capita than any city in the US, and most of the bike riders are radicals and/or anarchists.

    My wife says the same thing; I’m too serious. Thanks for the information.
