Olympia's CodePink Says No to Spellcheck
Despite the bitterly cold wind and some rain, more than forty people stood at Percival Landing to join CodePink's International Woomen Say No to War demonstration.I Googled for "Wooman" and all I found was this. It continues:
Holding a wide array of signs, including a teddy bear who could no longer bear the war, the high school women stood with the white-haired elders. Members from Women in Black also were there, a solomn (sic) reminder of the violence across all the mideast.The Women in Mauve and the Women in Chartreuse sent their apologies.
You've got to admire their optimism:
Spirits were high despite the seemingly impossible task of ending this war.Uh huh. Facing which way? At least Code Pink didn't forge photos this time.
The group waved to the people in cars who were going home from work. Most waved, honked their horns, or shouted their support. You could not predict based on the cars who would support the anti-war message; people in old cars, new cars, trucks and SUVS all supported the anti-war message. Bus drivers, plumbing guys, and a few men in military uniform flashed the peace sign as they drove by.
