Nancy Pelosi Is Pressing Charges Against Peace Activists

Reprinted from WorldBeyondWar with permission.

Nancy Pelosi is having peace activists charged with felonies for nonviolent activities in front of her San Francisco home, and yet not having them investigated for, much less charged with what she has publicly accused them of, namely working for both Russia and China.

Heather Phipps is being represented in court by civil rights attorney Walter Riley. She allegedly splashed washable red paint on Pelosi’s garage door last week. A few drops of the paint accidentally got on a policeman’s uniform. The Pelosis are claiming that the damage to their garage door exceeds $400, and thus Heather committed a felony. The drops of paint on the policeman’s uniform are being used to also charge her with battery. Meanwhile Cynthia Papermaster, coordinator for CODEPINK in the Bay Area, is being charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly leaving red handprints on the garage door. The washable paint was completely washed off by evening.

Papermaster commented: “Pelosi takes $600,000 from the Israeli lobby and refuses to call for a ceasefire. We wonder — is she working for us, her constituents, or is she doing Netanyahu’s and Israel’s bidding? While Pelosi is funding a genocide in Gaza with our tax dollars that’s killing and starving thousands of children, she has time for petty vendettas against committed peace advocates. I fasted for Gaza for 20 days, taking only liquids amounting to 200 calories or less per day, which is what innocent children in Gaza are receiving if they can even find food to eat. There is a genocide happening before our eyes, and Pelosi is good with funding it with our tax dollars. So I’m now committed to ousting Pelosi from her undeserved position as San Francisco’s member of Congress.”

She continued: “Nearly 80% of Democrats want a ceasefire. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a ceasefire resolution by a vote of 8 to 3 with thousands of residents showing up at City Hall to support the resolution. Pelosi is either completely unaware of her constituents’ needs, or she is deliberately ignoring them, which is the more likely explanation. Her Federal Building office has been closed for years. Constituents are prevented from meeting with her staff or even entering the Federal Building. She doesn’t hold town meetings like other Representatives. She has walled herself off from the people she is supposed to represent. She continually votes against the interests of her constituents who fervently wish for her to call for a ceasefire and to stop funding the Israeli genocide in Gaza with our tax dollars. She is a failure as San Francisco’s member of Congress and she needs to step down and be replaced.”

On February 11, 2024, Bay Area CODEPINK took to Nancy Pelosi’s home again to tell neighbors and fellow constituents that a genocide is being bunded in our names!

In October, Pelosi told our members calling for a ceasefire to “go back to China.” These same women have been protesting for peace at her house for 17 years.  Pelosi takes thousands of dollars from AIPAC every year. Who’s the foreign agent here?  Video by Peter Menchini

  1. What happened to the Nancy who kneels down and prays with protesters? Palestinian Lives don’t matter?

  2. I have great respect for anyone who protest peacefully, but please, don’t go on private property, deface property, etc., it is not worth going to jail for. Pelosi should have been censored by Congress the day she stood behind Trump and ripped his SOTU Speech, but the COWARDS did nothing. Pelosi has her tantrums, makes violent threats against the President and get’s away with it, because Congress protects their own, no matter Rep or Dem. Vote them OUT!

    1. Ginah, Ginah, Ginah….. How can you worry about private property and red palm prints when a genocide is raging that is killing tens of thousands and poisoning minds and thinking on both sides with hate for generations to come…?????? Don’t you think that such may be small minded…..???????

      1. These women do more good out of jail, then in jail. We also know our Government picks and chooses when they want to enforce laws. BLM/ANTIFA were killing, assaulting, burning down businesses and they got a slap on the wrist, with the majority of them never arrested. We have J6 Political Prisoners, for walking on the grass, so given the political climate, these women are better out of jail, working to get Pelosi OUT of office.

  3. Well two can play at that game. If Pelosi can accuse protesters outside her home of working for Russia and China? Then we can accuse her of working on behalf of AIPAC/Israel and the genocide in Gaza. She is an enabler of the systematic ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people inside Israel. If the 30,000 reported deaths and the over 100,000 yet to be reported deaths that are being concealed by the Israeli IDF and MSM. Isn’t enough to make you cringe? What will Nancy? NUTS

  4. How does Pelosi keep getting re-elected? I don’t trust the elections in her district, at all. Stop the Steal.

  5. Nancy, Donald, Joe, MTG and so many other politicians in the US, Europe, Canada and other places work for Israel and AIPAC. They have blood on their hands that Dracula would drink if he existed.
