Women peace groups make an urgent plea to Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton to take immediate action in response to the ongoing indecent and illegal behavior of the Bush administration.
“We want to invoke for them the feminine priorities of nurturing, safety, and justice,” explains Sherry Glaser of Breasts Not Bombs. “The American people are tired of the rising body count and spending $1.8 billion a week on the war in Iraq, and they have made clear their priorities are the health and well being of this nation.”
The groups also choose this form of political theater to symbolize the vulnerability of the Iraqi people, US soldiers, and women and children everywhere, and to represent a culture of nurturance.
They will visit Nancy Pelosi’s office on Monday July 23, 2007 at 12:OOpm and the opening of Clinton’s Hillary for President San Francisco office at 4:00pm.
“Last November voters gave a mandate for peace to the new Congress, but Congress, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, has not done enough to end the war, and neither has Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton,” says Vicki Leidner of CODEPINK San Francisco, “As women peacemakers we have a special responsibility to ensure that women in power are representing us.”
“We take our lead from women throughout history who have used creative nonviolent actions to reveal the undeniable power of the feminine,” adds Margaret Howe of Breasts not Bombs.
