The 99% Are Rising to Join the Global Revolution!

Why is CODEPINK part of the Occupy Movement?

“Someday the workers will take possession of your city hall, and when we do, no child will be sacrificed on the altar of profit!” – Mary Harris “Mother” Jones

Since the start of the Occupy Wall Street movement, CODEPINK activists have joined the frontlines of the non-violent occupy movement across the country. Whether we're marching for Healthcare not Warfare, leading a teach-in on the cost of war, or helping to create safe spaces for women's participation, our fabulous PINK team has been at the heart of this beautiful, burgeoning movement.


…because war profiteers make up the top 0.01% of the 1% who control the country's wealth, profiting from suffering and corrupting Congress at a rate that exceeds that of even the biggest banks.

….because we must reclaim our democracy from the richest 1%. Until we do, special interest lobby groups, including those that helped drive the US to war, such as big oil and AIPAC, have disproportionate power over voters.

Millions of people around the world - from the Arab Spring to the "American Autumn" - are rising up for freedom and justice. Occupy Wall Street and the solidarity actions springing up all around the country represent the rise of a resistance movement comprised of people of all ages, genders, sexual orientations and political beliefs. We all have one thing in common: we will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1% whose hold on our politics is suffocating 99% of Americans and we are willing to put our bodies on the line to demand a better world for us and for future generations. By sowing the seeds of community, together we can build a new world.
