    Protest John Brennan at the Council on Foreign Relations

    The Council on Foreign Relations is inviting its members only to attend this "on the record" event which it describes here.

    CIA’s Global Mission: Countering Shared Threats
    John O. Brennan
    Director, Central Intelligence Agency
    Central Intelligence Agency Director John O. Brennan will offer insights on how the CIA addresses the unprecedented array of complex challenges worldwide, including its role in building the intelligence capability of foreign liaison services to improve professionalism and enhance international security.

    12:30 to 1:00 p.m. Lunch
    1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Meeting



    Read about John Brennan here.

    We will protest outside against US terror drone strikes killing thousands of innocent civilians who are called "collateral damage."  The US wars continue in Iraq and Afghanistan and beyond, destabilizing whole regions.  Why are some lives considered, by those in power, more important than other lives?  Why are some deaths considered tragic and others not?

    Sponsored by War Criminals Watch/World Can't Wait and NYC War Resisters League (list in formation).

    Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA

    Dance Across the Golden Gate Bridge - One Billion Rising 2015!

    On 14 February 2015*, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE! Join us for an early morning dance across the Golden Gate Bridge at 12:00pm.

    ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.

    We're doing it again! Dance Across the Golden Gate Bridge - #1BillionRising 2015! #SF Join the Facebook group!

    ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. On February 14, 2015, Oakland will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and women and men across the world as we express their outrage, demand change, strike, dance, drum and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.

    “When we started V-Day so many years ago, we had the outrageous idea that we could end violence against women,” said Ensler. “Now, we are both stunned and thrilled to see that this global action is truly escalating and gaining force, with union workers, parliament members, celebrities, and women of all backgrounds coming forward to join the campaign. When we come together on February 14, 2015 to demand an end to violence against women and girls it will be a truly global voice that will rise up.”
