Code Pink Women for Peace staged a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party on Monday, December 17, the 234th anniversary of colonists boarding a British ship and dumping more than 300 chests of tea overboard to protest tea taxes. Using the Tall Ships, currently harbored in Marina del Rey, as a backdrop, members dressed in colonial uniforms and held banners with slogans such as “Don’t Buy Bush’s War” and dropped tea chests into the water. The chests were decorated in pink with different sayings: “War $$$,” “No Iran War,” and “Bush Cheney Go,” a visual play on their current campaign to encourage people to withhold their taxes to protest the ongoing war in Iraq. photo by Margaret Molloy
