#ShutDownREMAX #ShutDownCreech

CODEPINK will be mobilizing nationally to Nevada to shut down American-funded militarism, occupation and war! Join us for these events:



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!
