Today’s Lady News: Peace Activists Plan “Wear A Hijab” Day On 9/11

  • As a counter protest to the Koran-burning in Florida, peace activist Charell Charlie of California is planning a “Wear A Hijab” event at The Grove in Los Angeles. She is inviting men and women of all faiths to don a hijab veil (for women) or kufi head covering (for men) in silent solidarity with Muslims in America on September 11th. “We are non-Muslims who plan to wear the hijab or kufi on 9/11 as a gesture to American Muslims that they are full citizens of this country and deserve the same rights as the rest of us. We intend to prove to Muslims around the world that people of peace outnumber those who hate,” she said. “Let’s stand up and stand out to demonstrate that not all Americans are bigots.” [LAist.com]

Give Me An O!

At 1:08 a.m. EST on Saturday, December 22, people all over the world (you’re welcome to join!) will be taking part in a “synchronized global orgasm.” Started by the same people who took off their clothes and spelled “Peace” with their naked bodies in protest of the Iraq War, the Second Annual Global Orgasm for Peace will hopefully “create a burst of positive energy” and “maybe transform the negativity that is rampant throughout the world right now,” according to its organizers. If you’re not feeling up to it on Saturday (or your vibe is out of batteries) the least you can do is buy a “Peaking for Peace” t-shirt. [Global Orgasm]
