* What is the Waitress Action?

Code Pinkies to pose as waitresses where restaurants have tables set up on the public street (no risk of trespass). Show diners our waitress trays with glued on war toys scenario. "Did you order this?" we ask the diners. The answer to this question is, "well, you paid for it!" Educational leaflet is given the diner, looks like a restaurant menu, with war menu items and the cost. A great interactive way to have fun and education folks about the cost of the war!

Support Iraqi Women

Stop Violence Against Iraqi Women ..
Let Us Work Together for Justice, and Equality

Despite the relative improvement in the security situation, our Iraqi people continue to live in an atmosphere of general chaos that is unprecedented for Iraq or other countries. Perhaps the most important manifestation of this chaos is the lawlessness, unbridled terrorism, insecurity and the spread of organized crime. This situation has claimed the lives of more than fifty women during the second half of this year, with the murders being carried out by extremist and reactionary forces and criminal gangs, under various social, religious and political motives and pretexts.Iraqi women, who are subjected to various forms of discrimination, oppression and exploitation, and who face violence on a daily basis and through various means, are today facing mass killings because of the widespread terrorism targeting them. Most heinous murders are committed against them, in broad daylight with impunity. The killings of women in the city of Basra are but a terrible proof of the barbarism of their perpetrators and those who stand behind them. Despite the condemnation of these crimes, the government and the relevant authorities have not taken the necessary measures against these crimes, to put an end to them and punish their perpetrators.We, in Iraqi Women s League, strongly condemn the crimes of killing women in Basra and other Iraqi towns, and denounce all forms of violations of human rights in Iraq, and call upon international organizations, the Iraqi Government and relevant authorities to:

1 - Send an international fact-finding mission to Iraq, to be organized by the UN High Commission for Human Rights with the participation of international human rights organizations, to investigate the crimes against women, help the Iraqi authorities to identify the perpetrators and work to stop these crimes.

2 - Reveal the criminals and those who stand behind them, and bring them to justice.

3 - Disclose the outcome of the investigations.

4 - Take measures to safeguard personal freedoms that are constitutionally guaranteed.

5 - Take deterrent measures to ensure the safety of citizens and protect their lives.

6 - Act firmly to improve the conditions of women and facilitate their involvement in the reconstruction process.

PINK in December

Here's the beginning of what's up with Code PINK Philly in December.

Saturday, 12/8 Noon. 10th & Market St. Peace carolling and handing out our fabulous and frightening "Cost of the War" price tags. Maybe a lunch afterwards.

Saturday 12/15 and 12/22 - to be decided - but we'll be out there standing up for peace!

During the month we'll be reading The End of America by Naomi Wolf. Copies are available from House of Our Own and other bookstores around Philly. Then....

1/6 Happy New Year! Instead of our regular meeting at 30th Street Station, we'll be meeting at a member's home in West Philly. 3 PM for the monthly gathering and 4 PM for yummy potluck and book discussion. Maybe planning an action stemming from our take on the book.
Call 215-474-4081 or email for the address
