From Common Dreams:
Activist group Code Pink, protesting this week at the Republican National Convention, marched through the streets of Tampa on Monday dressed as a group of giant vaginas to speak out against the GOP’s ‘war on women’.
The group also congregated in a demonstration outside Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Coalition rally, among several other events, holding signs with slogans such as ‘My body, my vagina, my decision,’ and ‘Can’t say it, don’t legislate it.’ …
‘As a young woman, I am appalled at the right-wing attacks on my body and the censorship on body parts that should be respected and protected. If they can’t say the word ‘vagina’ then they shouldn’t legislate it,’ said 29 year old Rae Abileah, co-director of Code Pink, referring to the an incident wherein Michigan state Rep. Lisa Brown (D) was banned from speaking on the House floor in an apparent attempt to punish her for using the word ‘vagina’ during a debate on legislation on reproductive rights.
Code Pink will also be demonstrating at the Democratic National Convention to “hold both parties accountable for ongoing support for war and killer drones, misuse of national resources in the face of economic recession, and corporate money in politics.”
