Pink Think

I was heartened to read about Code Pink, a women's group that opposes the war against Iraq. Women in pink are holding peace vigils and fasts to protest the imminent war. The vigils began in November and will continue until March 8.

They also attract some, well, interesting followers. Visit the comments page (belatedly) for Christmas carols rewritten as protest songs, including "Have Yourself a Merry Little Wartime."

I'm encouraged by the number of peace resources online. During the first gulf war, if you lived outside the major metro areas, there was very little in the way of information about what other groups were doing, unless you heard through the grapevine or it was covered by the media, which hardly ever happened.
