Those pink protestors are back
The Code Pinkers are back. They are the feminist group named to satirize the Bush administration's color-coded terror warnings who stage a weekly protest and sit-in at the Charlottesville office of U.S. Representative Virgil Goode and who occasionally get arrested when they refuse to vacate.
Today's event marks a merger of sorts. Although this is the third time that Charlottesville's Code Pink has occupied the local office of the Rocky Mount-based Republican lawmaker, this day's event is part of a national series of occupations by "Voices for Creative Nonviolence." More arrests are expected.
