Today is NOT a day to just take your mom to brunch!
Today began 140 years ago with a call "Rise Women Rise" by Julia Ward Howe who beseeches us to feel so tender toward women of other nations we will not allow our sons to injure their sons!
We begin our 10 days of action today with this march across the Golden Gate Bridge. So take your mom to the bridge this Mother's Day!
Our theme, following Julia Ward Howe, will be "DISARM, DISARM".
She says "a voice raises up from the bosom of a devastated earth, crying 'DISARM, DISARM'"
Tomorrow, join our caravan to Creech AFB, where U.S. soldiers sit behind computer consoles and order DRONES (unmanned aerial vehicles) to assassinate human beings 7000 miles away.
We will protest war profiteers along the way to Creech, we protest DRONES at Creech, and then go to San Diego to protest General Atomics, manufacturer of killer drones.
