Expose the Bank Robber Barons

May 12, 2011
CODEPINK on Wall Street
Los Angeles, CA




On Thursday, May 12th I flew to NYC to join CODEPINKers and the Peace and Justice community to march on Wall Street.

We were there to expose the Bank Robber Barons and to stand with the teachers who were receiving severe cuts in NYC that week.

I brought our Bring Our War $$ Home banners from LA and added pink to the mix with our BOW$H stickers. Everyone wanted one. We spent two hours chanting and marching around Wall Street.

The teachers, students and union members loved our stickers and messaging, so much pink was added to the multitude of yellow signs. Over 10,000 people swarmed the streets of Wall Street shutting it down between 4 and 6pm.

I also met up with our new CODEPINK NYC coordinator and Hands off Wikileaks campaign coordinator, Melanie Butler. It was great to be with the Raging Grannies and the CP gals in the streets again… Eva Lee and Barbara leading the way.
