"Camp Pelosi" Turning Up the Heat to Defund War
Vigil in Front of House Speaker's SF house and Teach-In at Her Office
As the fourth anniversay of the war in Iraq approaches, members of the Ghandi Peace Brigade and Code Pink have been holding vigil outside of Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco residence since March 11th demanding that the Speaker of the House stop funding the war. These activists have taken refuge on the corner of Broadway and Normandie in Pacific Heights urging the passage of HR 508, the Out of Iraq Bill introduced by Rep. Lynn Woolsey and to defeat the upcoming $100 billion supplemental funding bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Late afternoon on March 13th, San Francisco police ordered that Camp Pelosi tear down their tent but the activists are holding strong and are refusing to leave. "We can not have business as usual.", said Rene of Code Pink, "as long as she is funding the war she is NOT representing us. We are going to hold court in the street until the vote happens. COME JOIN US! Stop the war funding and perhaps prevent the potential attack on Iran. WE NEED YOU!" Ragging Grannies have gotten involved to support the effort.

A teach-in with similar goals was held at 11:30am on March 14th at her office in the SF Federal Building. On March 19th, several activists were arrested in the halls outside Pelosi's office after attempting to speak with her.
