The ONLY way to view President Obama's speech tonite is among and with CodePINKers and friends!

Come to Bobby G's (mostly organic) Pizza, 2072 University Ave, Berkeley, just below Shattuck about 3 blocks from downtown Berkeley BART around 5pm tonite, Wednesday Jan 27th. Or in SF at Tommy's Joynt, Van Ness and Geary Blvd.

CODEPINK Women for Peace will hold our annual public viewing of the President's State of the Union address at Bobby G's and Tommy's! President Barack Obama is scheduled to deliver his first address at 6:00pm PST.

It will be a night of political bingo, key word scorecards and lively discussion, including critical analysis of where President Obama is escalating war and occupation and not focusing on ending wars of aggression abroad and misappropriating funds.

Obama’s domestic programs—from heath care to jobs to green initiatives—all require hundreds of billions of dollars. By 2009, Congress had approved over $1 trillion dollars for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This continued emphasis on war and a bloated Pentagon budget is killing masses of people around the world and making it impossible for Obama to fund critical domestic programs in a time of financial crisis.

President Obama will ask Congress for $33 billion for the surge against Afghanistan, at a time when the people of that country are suffering immensely while Americans are unemployed without health care, public education and university budgets are being cut, and families are losing their homes.

In his address, Obama will call for a cap on spending on everything except the military. Spending on war and weapons is the first place we should look to save money, not the last.
