CodePink "Day of Action" Against HUMMERS

CodePink Flexes Their Muscles

Does Junior drive a HUMMER?
No, this wasn't on an SUV.
YESTERDAY WAS EARTH DAY. You probably didn't notice.

In Burlingame, dozens of activists from the feminist/peace group CodePink gathered in front of a HUMMER dealership and took turns bashing the hated SUV, the San Francisco Examiner reports.

Protesters smashed a bright yellow Hummer with a baseball bat and it fell apart like a cardboard piñata. Actually, it was a cardboard piñata -- part of an Earth Day anti-Hummer protest Thursday.

"We're not encouraging people to hit real Hummers or Hummer owners," clarified Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink Women for Peace, which sponsored similar protests throughout the country.

Here in San Diego, CodePink only managed to muster eight activists. I stopped by to chat with the ladies for a few minutes on my way home from work, and snapped a few photos.

Nobody else seemed to even notice they were there.
