to use your voice when you pledge to have a peaceful holiday season.

and each week you will choose a new creative action from our list
Ways to Have a Peaceful Holiday Season"--a list
that includes everything from crafting a bloody handprint wreath
to passing out "Don't Bomb Iran"
flyers at screenings of the film Persepolis! Choose the activities
that would be most meaningful for you and your loved ones, and see
how peace can transform your holiday experience.
we come together as a community by having peace-themed holiday house
parties, caroling our peace songs, highlighting the dangers of giving
war toys to our children, conversing with others about the perils
of war with Iran, and participating in other thoughtful holiday
activities, we can inspire others to do the same.

P.S.We must remember that Peace on Earth includes
Pakistan, as well. Our own Medea Benjamin and CODEPINK
LA's stalwart Tighe Berry are currently in Pakistan as part of a
delegation to support the rule of law. Click
here to sign our petition to call upon the United States,
the United Kingdom, and all other governments to suspend financial
assistance to the Government of Pakistan until it lifts the emergency
laws, frees civil society activists in jail and under house arrest,
restores judicial independence, ends restrictions on the media,
and restores the 1973 constitution-followed by elections under the
auspices of an independent election commission. For more information,
