Portland CODE PINK stages strong, playful actions to confront local and global power mongers—you may have seen and heard us with our signs and songs at anti-war rallies, on street corners and elsewhere around town. CODE PINK is a broad international movement for peace and justice led by women. The name “CODE PINK” is a play on the Bush administration’s color-coded homeland security alerts. Although we enjoy colorful antics that highlight hypocrisies in government and corporate business, we thoughtfully plan our costumes, lyrics and other high-jinks to broadcast our message effectively. We welcome individuals who seek community in standing up against economic inequality and violence. Meetings are first Tuesdays, 6 p.m., at In Other Words Bookstore, 3734 SE Hawthorne; before each meeting we hold a demonstration, starting at 5:30, in front of the Bagdad Theater, SE Hawthorne and 37th. Join us for meeting and/or demo.
