For three weeks now, protesters have been camping out for OccupyWallSt, an anti-corporate greed movement whose website states, "The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%."I guess the guys she raised money for has nothing to do with that.
Now, the movement has arrived in Venice.
Sunday morning, about 75 people gathered at Windward Circle to show their support.
"What we can create in this circle is a reflection of what we can create as humans," organizer Jodie Evans, founder of CodePink, told the crowd.
Evans, who traveled to New York and Washington, D.C. to support protests there, said she was inspired by the people who started the movement. "They were all young, and they didn't have anything to lose," she said.
"Everyday, they were watching their future deteriorate."
Those charming Code Pink hags "protested" a Wounded Warriors race.
Just finished running Army Ten Miler... and unofficial time was 1 hr 29 mins and change, great seeing many old friends and former bosses. However, what struck me as shameful was Code Pink being out on the run course protesting. There were many Wounded Warriors doing the wheelchair race and running with their prosthetic devices. Perhaps Code Pink does not realize that those "Army Strong" men and women make it possible for them to stand on Independence Ave and demean their service, sacrifice, and commitment.......Land of the Free because we are the Home of the Brave!" Army Strong!
