Code Pink for Greece

I saw these guys protesting outside the Greek embassy while I was exploring DC on my bike. Once I got talking with them, I quickly saw how much they believe in their cause. At that time, a boat containing a number of US activists had been detained by Greek authorities. The group on the boat was being stopped from trying to join a flotilla which was protesting Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip. Bad policy by Greece and Israel. The shape of the piece turned out like a giant swirl and I feel like it reflects the way they are stirring things up. Code Pink is a great organization so I’ll give them 50% of all money earned through the sale of this piece.
