On Tuesday afternoon, activists from the women-led social justice organization CODEPINK combined hula hooping with peaceful advocacy in Lafayette Square near the White House. The activists led “hooping for peace” to show support for recent nuclear negotiations with Iran.
In a landmark agreement with six nations including the United States last month, Iran agreed to limit its nuclear capability in exchange for lifted financial and oil sanctions, the New York Times reported. As part of the agreement, Iran will reduce its stockpile of the enriched uranium used to make nuclear weapons by 98 percent.
CODEPINK activist Tighe Barry described the event as “a fun way to get people aware of the Iran deal.”
