A Day In the Life of an Anti-War Activist

Serious activism requires planning, execution, and preparation for arrest. Here we see how it’s done by Code Pink, well known in and around Washington D.C. as anti-war protesters.

Code Pink activist Tighe Barry was arrested and charged with disruption of Congress today during the Armed Service Committee meeting where committee members were hearing testimony from Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and the Chair of the Joint Chief of staff General Martin Dempsey.

Activism is a hard calling. The men and women who sacrifice so much for The Good Fight are ahead of the curve. If their diligent actions are successful, they create the curve, the tide, that carries all of us forward to a better existence. Meanwhile, their work is often lonely and difficult. They need our respect, prayers, and support.
