In our plea to the President Elect to speak out, CODEPINK harkens back to the White Rose Society-the WWII non-violent resistance group in Germany. This tiny band of college students and their professor adopted the motto “We will not be silent” and exposed what they saw and knew was happening around them.
On Friday, CODEPINK, along with Jewish and Muslim women, will deliver a flood of white roses to Obama’s Washington, DC hotel, with the message, “Please do not be silent. The children of Gaza need your help.” For $5, you can add a white rose to the bouquet and a voice to the chorus of those who speak out!
