Put the Marines Under Abrest! Friday the 13th, 10:00am (gather at 9:00am): Mammary action with Breasts Not Bombs and CodePINK: Women for Peace!
We are going to abrest the marine recruiters on Friday the 13th, 10:00am at the MRS because these marines, like congress, are NOT paying attention to the simple things we are saying:
• END WAR NOW!
• STOP RECRUITING OUR YOUTH!
• STOP turning valuable human life into casualties or cannon fodder!
• STOP OCCUPYING the SOVEREIGN NATION OF IRAQ !
• STOP funding war NOW!
They will pay attention on Friday the 13th at 64 Shattuck Square. And in Congress and all over the nation. Women mean END WAR NOW! NO MORE 40,000 troops to Iraq ; NO MORE $166 Billion in war funding. Women can’t bare it anymore!
What is more deeply INDECENT than providing the funds and human fodder for genocide, war and occupation?
Bring signs listing everything you feel is truly indecent: WAR is indecent; FUNDING WAR is indecent; RAPE is indecent; TORTURE is indecent; ATTACKING OUR CONSTITUION is indecent.
Breasts are NOT indecent. Breasts are the givers and sustainers of life. We must bring marines back to our bosoms and remind them “all they have been taught of charity, mercy, and patience”; and we must not allow them to “injure other women’s sons” – or daughters.
