Codepink Golden Gate invites environmental and social justice movement accomplices to visit a company that builds weapons for the military– the largest polluter on the planet!– to tell and show them how to GO GREEN! Wars are fought for oil, run on tremendous amounts of fossil fuels, and make us dependent on extraction, pipelines, and shipping dirty oil, causing environmental disaster and global warming. This company manufactures drones and other war machines that cause the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians as “collateral damage.” The company also helps run private prisons where prisoners must work for free (see Who’s behind unpaid prison labor in Texas?) This action is being hosted by the Codepink Golden Gate Ruckus Team. See Codepink’s #No54BillionforWar” Campaign here: http://www.codepink.org/no54billionforwar
