On Jan 10, Code Pink protested the confirmation of racist Jeff Sessions attorney general. On the 3ed of May, three Code Pink members were convicted of “disorderly conduct” carrying up to a year in prison for this, one for nothing more than laughing at Sen Shelby and Sessions prior to the hearing. They are CODEPINK members Desiree Fairooz, Tighe Barry, and Lenny Bianchi. Desiree Fariooz laughed “reflexively” when Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) had the nerve to claim Jeff Session’s record of “treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well-documented.” For that she faces a year in prison.
On the 10th of May, Code Pink held a “laugh-in” in front of the Dept of Justice to protest these outrageous possible prison terms-and the decades in prison over 200 Inauguration protesters are facing.
