Cindy Sheehan, Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox and the Soapbox People's Network announce a joint effort in Washington DC opposing the wars and spreading police state. Such diverse organizations as World Can't Wait and Military Families Speak Out have endorsed the action.
The four day action will involve components of community building, protest, education, and planning for a future of protesting wars that will be more diverse, powerful, strategic, and, most of all effective.
Speaking from her home in Vacaville, CA; peace activist and human rights advocate Cindy Sheehan had this to say: "Organizing against the wars has been challenging during the Obama administration because so many people who would identify as 'antiwar' misplaced a lot of hope in Obama ending the wars. As a matter of fact, Obama has expanded the wars abroad, drone bombing, assassinations of US citizens without trial, and the police state here in the states. It's time to reclaim our principles as members of a global community and join together in Washington DC and stop giving Obama a 'chance."
Ms. Sheehan continued: "wars kill innocent people and our troops for the profit of a very few and wars get bi-partisan support in DC. Do you support war? Do you support allowing torturers and murderers of the Bush regime to go unpunished? Do you support drone bombings of innocent people and out of control cops here in the US? No? Then come to DC in March to support our actions."
