Organization: Codepink Women for Peace: Emerged out of a desperate desire by a group of American women to stop the Bush administration from invading Iraq.

While Bush’s color-coded alerts are based on fear and are used to justify violence, the CODEPINK alert is a feisty call for women and men to “wage peace.”
