Remember that 24-hour sleepover CODEPINK is staging outside of the White House this weekend? I forgot to mention the most important part:
Co-sponsored by CODEPINK and Breasts not Bombs, the event will now include a call-to-breasts. Breasts not Bombs is inspired by a Mendocino, Cali. woman who, while “celebrating 4th of July at a local park, removed her shirt to dance in the warm summer sun.” This weekend, women will descend upon D.C. to bare their breasts in order to “reclaim the definition of Indecency and stand for mothers and children all over the world whose daily lives are ruined by continued warmongering and profiteering.”
Presser is after the jump.
What: Breasts Not Bombs and Code Pink Co Sponsor

Members of Peace activist Group Breasts Not Bombs enjoy the legal protection and accept a moral obligation to engage in a non-violent topless demonstration for Peace in front of the White House this Mother’s Day.
Breasts Not Bombs originated in Mendocino California in 2004 when a women celebrating 4th of July at a local park removed her shirt to dance in the warm summer sun. She was told she was offending people, breaking the law and was threatened with arrest for indecent exposure. Their attorney help prove that breasts “were not genitalia” A series of public protests ensued under the banner, “Breasts Not Bombs” and asked the question, “What is truly indecent?” Protest signs indicate the true obscenity of War, Torture, Immigration sweeps, The Pentagon’s budget, Banker bailouts, etc.
We will gather at the White House this weekend to reclaim the definition of Indecency and stand for mothers and children all over the world whose daily lives are ruined by continued warmongering and profiteering.
This demonstration is Constitutionally protected and in Solidarity with peace activists from Code Pink.
