Four Questions For: Code Pink, Women For Peace

Fernanda Diaz at Glamour's blog, Glamocracy:

I'm fascinated by activists, and my current obsession is Code Pink.

Code Pink is a women-led activist group that began as a way to protest the invasion of Iraq, and has since expanded its mission to "working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities." You may have seen images and video of their rallies and (occasionally disruptive) activities on the news. Earlier this week, I had the chance to sit down with Code Pink's National Campaign Director, Dana Balicki, to learn more about Code Pink and what they are planning to do at the Democratic National Convention.

She asks Dana these questions:
  • How has the 2008 election season affected CODEPINK's mission and protest tactics, if at all?
  • How does the idea of "women's issues" fit into CODEPINK's goals? What do you consider women's issues?
  • What are your plans for the conventions, and how will you be making yourselves heard?
  • Since your main mission is about ending the war and bring the troops home, I have to ask: how does CODEPINK stand on McCain and Obama's Iraq plans?
Check out the answers and please leave a supporting comment if you can!
