Tell Sen. Markey: No Cold War with China

Thu July 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Tell Sen Markey: No Cold War with China

Join CODEPINK’s China Is Not Our Enemy campaign, Massachusetts Peace Action, Boston-area student organizations, and local youth constituent activists who helped get Senator Ed Markey elected for a direct action at the Senator’s Boston office Thursday, July 22nd @ 2PM ET to demand he honor his campaign promises!

Many of those who worked to get incumbent Ed Markey re-elected during last year’s heated Senate race, especially youth voters, are angry that Markey is already going back on his promises to cut military spending and end his support for endless U.S. wars. Senator Markey failed to live up to his campaign promise to cut Pentagon spending and invest our tax dollars into peaceful green alternatives that actually serve the needs of Massachusettsans!

Our Demands:

  • End his support for anti-China focused militarism like that in the Innovation & Competition Act, the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act, and the Pacific Deterrence Initiative! China Is Not Our Enemy!
  • Stop undermining Climate Envoy John Kerry’s climate deal with China & promote cooperation with China on clean energy initiatives!
  • Defund nuclear modernization and proliferation, and remove the Pacific Deterrence Initiative from the Pentagon Budget to foster global stability and survival of the human race!

Meet CODEPINK and its coalition outside of Senator Markey’s office to voice these demands! RSVP for more actions to take, and to add your name to this petition! See the full letter here.
