    #ShutDownREMAX

    March 2-4th: Las Vegas, Nevada

    CODEPINK and allies will be staging actions as part of a national mobilization to the RE/MAX R4 Convention March 2-4, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas to protest RE/MAX’s selling of stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank, as part of our Boycott RE/MAX: No Open House on Stolen Land (LINK: boycottremax.org) campaign. RE/MAX International is selling settlement properties through RE/MAX Israel on confiscated Palestinian as it profits off of Israel’s illegal occupation and system of settler-colonialism. The mobilization will target the RE/MAX R4 Convention, the largest annual gathering with over 6,000 RE/MAX representatives in attendance from more than 60 countries around the world. We will be staging a three day presence outside the event which includes speakers like top RE/MAX executives, Peyton Manning, and even a performance by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. Join us for community building, direct action, and of course to meet fellow activists from across the nation in PINK!

    This event, rescheduled from Tuesday, December 16, is listed as being sold out.

    Spring Rising: An Antiwar Intervention in DC

    “Spring Rising” is four days of creative resistance; theater, teach-ins; rallies and marches marking the anniversary of the United States’ "shock and awe" attack on Iraq and its invasion and occupation in a completely illegitimate, immoral war. Together we will use this time to oppose the plans and calls for growing military intervention.

    As we send this invitation to you the Congress is calling for more war. The President has just told us a new global “war on terror” may be unlimited in space and time.

    • Are you, like us, stunned and enraged by more war on the world?
    • Did you or your organization join in the protests against police violence and murder, because Black Lives Matter?
    • Are you with the Dreamers working for rights for all people to live without fear?
    • Are you one of the many who have dropped everything to protest the global destruction of the environment because of our dependence on fossil fuels which is also a reason for our wars?
    • Are you agonized over the ongoing U.S. military support for Israel, the recent killing of 2,000 Arab men, women, and children last summer in Gaza?
    • Are you furious about the killing and terrorizing of Muslims in the U.S?
    • Then, join us! Your participation in Spring Rising is urgently needed now to organize protests, participate in teach-ins and to put your art and performance on mass display. Together we can create the vibrant resistance needed to show that terrorizing the world is not in our interest and “not in our name.”
    • These days together will be vitally important for building the movement we need to oppose war and the violence and oppression of empire at home and abroad.

    Here's the schedule so far:

    Wednesday March 18

    Noon Rally at Lafayette Park in front of the White House
    1pm March from the White House, through Chinatown to the Capitol

    Spring Rising will comprise a number of events including a large rally and march, a teach-in, and lobbying. Its goal is to increase opposition to wars and militarism, and in particular to U.S. military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, as well as all U.S. drone attacks and surveillance worldwide. Spring Rising advocates the closure of U.S. military bases overseas, and the dismantling of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. We urge the demilitarization of police forces and a halt to their targeting of minority communities. We seek to increase understanding of and resistance to U.S. military operations' acceleration of climate chaos.
