Stop The “Testosterone-Poisoned Rhetoric”!
It’s such a shame some of the loonier antiwar projects are below the mainstream radar screen–some of them are just so colorful. Betcha didn’t know about “Code Pink,” for instance. At Lafayette Park, across from the White House, women sit vigil since November protesting the war, and will be there until International Women’s Day in March. “From a park bench in the shadow of Andrew Jackson on horseback, the pink-clad activists distribute briefing papers, chat with passers-by, pose for tourists, collect signatures of women in support of the cause and plan their next steps.” Says a spokeswoman: “Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, George Bush–they use violence against violence, and we are saying that there is a better way,” she says. “It is time for women’s voices to be heard.”
