This weekend marks the third anniversary of the War in Iraq. There will be a major protest for it, at Hollywood and Ivar, starting at noon on Saturday. CODEPINK will be there, as will A.N.S.W.E.R. Three years is three years too many, we say. I’ve reposted the CODEPINK alert about last week’s International Women’s Day actions on my blog as well, which has the recap of what we did, across America, to say no to war.
I’m continuing the protesting on Sunday as well, when I’m going on the Acura Bike Tour, as part of the Ride de No Guerre. That’s the anti-war protest on bikes which is riding along as a sub-group. The Tour overlaps a bit with the “F&@% Acura Bike Tour”, the group of bike activists who find it hypocritical that a car company is sponsoring a bike ride, and who are not paying to register in protest. I couldn’t go THAT far though. I’m registering – although I’d probably refuse to do so if it was the Ford Bike Marathon instead. More info on all rides is on the BikeBoom calendar. See you all on the streets!
