Inside the Tent: Code Pink

August 25, 2008

Reuters Inside the Tent has more than 40 delegates and other attendees in Denver and St. Paul, equipped with video cameras to capture the conventions from the ground up. The following video is from Kelly Nuxoll, a correspondent for Huffington Post’s Off the Bus.

Nuxoll interviews Anne Toepel, a 41-year-old elementary school teacher who founded the Denver-Boulder chapter of Code Pink, which has built its reputation protesting the Iraq war.

Nuxoll is not a Reuters employee and any opinions expressed are her own.

Yea, Anne Toepel! Thanks for your well spoken words. I am a CODEPINK/Bend, OR founder and am so sad not to be there, but am with you in spirit. I hope your message to the Democrats is heard loud and clear. My hope for you and your son is that peace will prevail on earth in your lifetime!
