The Protests Continue! March 20

By Amy Tannenbaum

Even after all of the excitement of the fifth anniversary of the war, CODEPINK still had the energy for an action this afternoon. There was a naval arms exposition at a local Marriott hotel, with Congressman Ike Skelton, the chair of the House Armed Services Committee, as a keynote speaker. We brought our "Don't Buy Bush's War" banners to protest these war profiteers and congressional pandering to this group of businesspeople. We had only a small contingent from CODEPINK, but a new group of students from Holy Cross/Our Spring Break had just showed up in town and added some fresh energy to our demonstration - then we chanted on the Metro back to the Pink House and sent them off for more marching on Capitol Hill. It was a great reminder that even in the wake of our powerful and intense work for March 19, we must continue our work in order to finally end this war!
