Bay Area CODEPINK is rocking our world. One of the pillars of the war machine is military recruitment; our sisters in Berkeley, California are using all their energy and love to bring that pillar down!

Last year, much to the shock of anti-war Berkeley, a Marines Recruiting Station opened in the heart of the city. CODEPINK has been protesting its presence ever since with breastfeeding circles, yoga, singing and other life-affirming vigils. The citizens of Berkeley have made it clear that they reject Bush's failed military policy in Iraq and refuse to participate by allowing military recruitment of their children into an endless occupation.

Last Tuesday, the Berkeley City Council voted to send a letter to the Marines Recruiting Station stating they're unwanted intruders in the community; they also voted to give CODEPINK a parking space and sound permit to demonstrate outside the Station.

The following day, CODEPINK launched the first ever zoning initiative to limit military recruiting stations in the area and the Berkeley City Council is doing what they can to adopt the measure quickly. To read about the historic initiative, which has spawned news stories, support around the country, and more hate mail than we've received in a while, click here.

The Berkeley City Council has been bombarded with hateful messages from pro-war forces, as well; your positive words are crucial to the forward movement of the campaign.

to thank the Berkeley City Council for voting to stop the war machine in their community!

This Valentine's Day, follow the lead of CODEPINK Berkeley activists, and bring the peace-making power of love to a military recruiting center in your own town! CODEPINK is planning Make Out, Not War actions at recruiting centers around the country. Valentine's Day Kiss-In at Military Recruiting Centers Now who could resist a KISS-IN So how many people could sit around all day and Kiss their sweetie, .To help stop war. I sure could.

HURRAY, ONCE AGAIN, FOR THE WORK OF CODE PINK.....AND THIS TIME, BERKLEY, CALIFORNIA!!! I LOVED THEIR POSTER: "Don't Enlist, Stay and Kiss! That way everyone makes out..."

Yeah, make love, not war! : )

If I had a lover, these days, I'd do that : ) But having no lover, I make war instead - on the side of the Iraqi freedom fighters!!! : P Currently, I ain't got a gun, so I give words of support for the resistance to occupation, I get news from the Iraqi point of view to U.S. people and people around the world. : )

I wish I lived long,
To see peace in the world,
Already weary of hate and wars,
Blown hot and cold by seasonal wind.

I wish to live not to see wars,
But the warmthness of love and affection,
Mankind always longed for to live long,
Before the death knocked at one’s door step.

I wish to live not to get wounded,
But to wind up my life after living to its full length,
Fulfilling my worldly obligations as a whole,
To leave behind for children a world worth living.

I wish to live a life worth living,
Not in hospital beds but happy homes,
With kith and kin around,
Dancing with joy as life gets unwounded.

Will the world leaders help me,
And the mankind as a whole,
To live in a world of wonders,
And not wars weary hell I abhor?

I love to learn the art of living,
And not the art of dying,
To make this world worth living,
And help the mortal towards
The exit for immortality.

It will always be true that Love conquers all.
Only those who Love have babies that can survive.

"Love Conquers All."

"Love Conquers All". There is no doubt about. This reminds me of what Mahatma Gandhi said:
"Go to one, who does not come to you; talk to one, who does not talk to you; make up with one, who is displeased with you; and all these, not for their good but for your own for the world is a creditor and we are the debtors". If we can individuallly and collectively follow the above we can make a peaceful world of co-existence of all human beings and living beings in total harmony with each other. This is possible and feasible. Any dispute on this?
