Rally: Codepink Free Hugs! Arms are for Hugging Action Against Gun Violence
In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, we have called for a ban on assault weapons and for background checks on all guns including those sold at gun shows. We need a comprehensive plan to address weapons in our communities and it starts with holding the NRA accountable.
From the wars the American government is perpetuating abroad, to the glorification of murder in pop culture, it's no surprise violence is prevalent in our society.
On March 8, International Women's Day, we bring the awareness of arms are for hugging (and not for killing). Whether it's nuclear weapons, armed drones, assault weapons, we need a plan of action to combat the global arms industry. Arms are for Hugging and not for killing!
