Action Alert: Debate Edition, Starring Code Pink for Peace
Written by Natalie Davis on October 13, 2015
You’re going to watch the Democratic presidential campaign tonight, right? It starts in about 90 minutes! Pacifist activism group Code Pink for Peace has some information it would like you to have in mind as you see the five-way semantic battle between Chaffee, Clinton, O’Malley Sanders, and Webb. Call this activism via social media:
What will happen when a Socialist, War Hawk, Vietnam Veteran, anti-Iraq war opponent, and former Maryland Governor walk out on to the first 2016 Democratic Party presidential debate stage tonight?
We don’t know — but what we do know is there are a number of key issues about respect, cooperation and demilitarization missing from the national debates. We need your help to remind candidates that U.S. foreign and domestic policies should not be based on war and policing!
Join us tonight online during the debate using #President4Peace to urge candidates to agree to CODEPINK’s 10 Peace Positions.
Another ask, cyber activists: Add the hashtag #DemDebate to your tweets.
