CODEPINK Co-founder and 10 Other Peace Activists Arrested at Appropriations Committee Vote


CODEPINK Co-founder Gael Murphy and 10 other peace activists arrested Thursday morning at 9:30 am while attempting to enter the public Appropriations Committee vote on the Supplemental Bill allocating $100 billion for the war in Iraq. CODEPINK has been lobbying hard against the passage of this bill and will hold a press conference today to respond to Ms. Murphy’s forceful arrest and today’s vote in the House Appropriations Committee. They will express their dismay that the Democrats, who were given a mandate for peace in the November election, but are allowing a bill to go to the House floor that will let the war drag on into 2008 instead of using their power of the purse to cut funds for the war.

CODEPINK has been working in full force and around the clock in the halls and streets around Congress since January and will continue to remind them to wake up and stop buying Bush's war. CODEPINK will continue to make its presence known in numerous and powerful ways to impress upon Congress the cost of war in our communities.
