|March 19th - Worldwide Day of Action
March 19-20 marks the two-year anniversary of the U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq. After all of the death and destruction and with the Bush administration claiming a mandate to continue their war, there's a new urgency and a stronger determination within the global antiwar movement to bring the troops home now.
CODEPINK Crashes the Inauguration!
As George W. Bush gave his inaugural address in front of the U.S. Capitol, six CODEPINK activists stood up on their chairs in the VIP section and shouted “bring the troops home!” The women also held up banners reading “No War,” “Out of Iraq Now,” and “Bush Mandate: Troops Home Now.” They were dragged out of the inaugural ceremony by the police, and two of the women were arrested.

Families for Peace Delegation
Thanks to your incredible generosity, we have now raised over $600,000 in humanitarian aid for the refugees from Falluja. Many of the supplies we've collected are being delivered directly by an extraordinary Families for Peace Delegation that left for Amman, Jordan and the Iraqi border on December 26. What makes this delegation so extraordinary is that it is composed of parents who have lost their sons in the war in Iraq or on September 11.
