Monthly CODEPINK Golden Gate Bridge Walk for Peace. We had such a great response to our theme last month, we’re doing it again! Late breaking news: With the war on Syria now in the news, our Immigrant/Refugee focus will be shared with PEACE with SYRIA. Solidarity signs for the people of Syria are also very welcome. Over 50 cruise missiles fired on Syria on 4/6!
THEME: SANCTUARY FOR IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES / PEACE WITH SYRIA
WHEN: Sunday, April 9th at Noon
Gather at Bridge Plaza, SF side. Walk to middle of bridge and back. We’ll assemble for photos both before and after the walk, and will display signage for motorists and pedestrians as we walk the bridge. Bridge walkers from all over the world often join us and take pictures. Join CODEPINK and share our LOVE for Immigrants and Refugees! EVERYONE WELCOME!
