While we celebrate Hosni
Mubarak's resignation,let's not forget that
the US supported his regime
for the past 30 years. Contact
Congress and the President
to tell them to support people’s
needs, not dictators. More...
Of all the things Codepink HAS
past year we just can't
take credit for the popular
uprising in Egypt. Despite allegations
that the pro-democracy demonstrators
are led by militants and extremists,
in fact the millions in Tahrir
Square are predominately young
people sick and tired of being
unemployed in a repressive police
state. All many have ever known
in the despotic rule of Pres.
Mubarak, propped up by $1 billion
in aid every year fromt he U.S.
Crowds in Cairo and other cities
also include pharmacists, grandmothers,
army officers, former employees
of the state controlled t.v.
station -- and yes, CODEPINK
activists whose large pink banner
"Solidarity with the Egyptian
People! Codepink.org" was
photographed in Tahrir and seen
around the world.
We are proud of those who call
for democracy no matter where
in the world they are! And we
call on Pres. Mubarak to step
down now and allow for an orderly
transition to a government of
the people, by the people, and
for the people!

The name CODEPINK satirized the Bush Administration's color-coded, fear-mongering "security" alert system that has since been phased out. CODEPINK is a lively call for the people of the world to "wage peace." More...
