Say No to NATO on the Golden Gate Bridge
European activists are planning protests and a 3-day conference in Warsaw in response to the NATO Summit there next weekend http://www.no-to-nato.org/. In solidarity, Bay Area CODEPINK will focus our monthly Walk for Peace on opposition to the Cold War dinosaur, NATO. We invite Bay Area peace organizations to join us and help spread the word.
Considering the U.S. Global Empire with its 1,000 plus military bases, is a worsening threat to the world's stability & the major player contributing to the dire refugee crisis, we call on all Bay Area peace organizations to co-sponsor this important event and join us to oppose the NATO Beast that feeds the U.S. Empire.
When: Sunday, July 10, Gather at 11:45 am; March/Rally Noon - 2 pm
Where: Golden Gate Bridge; all gather at South End Plaza and walk to middle of the Bridge
Parking (carpooling highly recommended): Arrive by 11:15 to get a parking space in parking lots near the SE or SW side of the bridge; OR park at Crissy Field parking and walk up the stairs to the South End Plaza.
Public Transportation: MUNI Bus #28

We are in support of the 5 demands sent to us by European peace activists:
** The end of confrontation with Russia! No troops and maneuvers at Russia’s Western border.
** No further armament in the NATO member states! It can only be financed by sharply reducing spending on education, health care and social security systems.
** No new nuclear weapons (and no modernization of existing arsenals) in Europe and worldwide.
** No missile defense system in Eastern Europe because this system only furthers the dynamic of armament and confrontation.
** No NATO operations against refugees.
For a peaceful world for all,
Cecile, Karen, Jackie, Janet, Susan, Toby and the CODEPINK Team
