Caroling against Ahava in Santa MonicaDecember 18, 2010
Los Angeles, CA
A group of CODEPINKers dressed in pink spa attire converged outside a store that carries AHAVA in LA to sing holiday carols. One of the store's owners came out of his shop, pushed us, threatened to dump a bowl of dog water on our heads, and grabbed our banner and threw it over CODEPINK cofounder Jodie's head. When we all went into the store to deliver the letter asking the store to stop carrying Ahava, the owner locked us in the store and said he was holding us, basically kidnapping us, until the police arrived. Luckily we were able to push our way out the front door and as the cops arrived they scolded the store owner for this clearly unlawful behavior. This is America, people are allowed to demonstrate on the sidewalks and sing, last time we checked.
The coordinated towels on our heads are taken from inspiration of the Bathrobes Brigade in the Netherlands who coordinate their spa attire beautifully.
