In the 4th episode of CODEPINK Radio, join our host Rose Asaf from NYC as she discusses current events, and has thought-provoking conversations with CODEPINK’s co-founder Jodie Evans and Nancy Mancias, a CODEPINK Organizer with out Divest from War campaign. Rose starts off by calling attention to the ever-growing acrocity of the Amazonia fire, set forth by conservative farmers in order to grow land for pastures, and drive away the Indiginous population. Rose also talks about Rep. Rashida Talib’s strong actions to not visit her grandmother in Palestine under the stringent rules set forth by Israel. However, it is a must to hear Rose’s opinion, as a Jewish American, about President Donald Trump's recent inflammatory remarks of Jewsih American’s who vote for the Democratic Party.
We first join Jodie Evans, CODEPINK’s Co-Founder, as she discusses the history of CODEPINK, and cultivation of a Local Peace Economy. Jodie gives us a fresh insight on how peace-building can come as simply as taking small, local steps, and eventually divest from the destructive War Economy. Our second guest for the show is Nancy Mancias, who discusses our biggest campaign “Divest From War Machine”. Nancy discusses the overarching message behind our pivotal campaign, what actions we have taken in the past, and what actions are we taking now. Nancy urges locals from NYC to join the fight against the war-profiteering companies.
