Where Have all the Peaceniks Gone? by Cindy Sheehan

Image
I believe it is human nature to want to be right (as in “correct” not “conservative). I like to be right. I also like to research my facts because being wrong to me is embarrassing. The one time I would have loved to be in error, though, was in a conviction that began over two years ago. I was convinced that Barack Obama was not the progressive-peace-savior that many of my friends and colleagues were making him out to be. But, I was right about that, and I think the facts have borne me out: the Overseas Contingency Operation (formerly known as George’s War OF Terror) has become even more of a quagmire under the new regime; healthcare was not so much reformed or overhauled as it was a handout to the health insurance companies; the oppressive police state is increasing; no accountability for war criminals (few people will prosecute themselves); torture continues; financial industry reform looks like it is guaranteed for further rich v. poor conquest; and this adm

Offically FUBAR by Cindy Sheehan

Officially FUBAR! "If Americans pulled back and started paying attention to this war, it would become even less popular," a senior adviser to head of NATO ops in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal (via Rolling Stone) FUBAR: Military slang for: Fu#ked Up Beyond All/Any Repair/Recognition. FUBAR also has a close military acronym: SNAFU: Situation Normal All Fu#ked Up. FUBAR and SNAFU can be traced back to WWII—you know that war. That’s the war (the last constitutionally declared by Congress) that, along with the US Civil War, is the war that is held up as the shining example of the goodness, nay GREATNESS of the United States of America. The war where we freed the entire planet of fascism, Nazi-ism, imperialism and made the world safe for FREEDOM (and freedom’s Siamese Twin: DEMOCRACY)! So, if the people who were actually in the trenches were recognizing the war, even the GREAT ONE was FUBAR—then we have only gone rapidly downhill from there. Even Ma

"Let Them Eat Oil" by Cindy Sheehan

I am now on an airplane heading home (for two days) after my very profound and moving experience in the Gulf Region. Monday, June 21st, a few dozen activists, scientists, environmentalists and concerned citizens gathered in front of the Deepwater Horizon Response Unified Command Center to present our list of demands to the office that houses BP and 14 Federal Agencies (the FBI also has offices in the building). We pulled this protest together in two days and I was gratified at the turnout (one woman, Cyndie, came up from Florida) and especially with the turnout from the media. Usually the corporate media presents some hostility, but not today. After my interviews, many of them said words to this affect: “Thank you for being here to help us call attention to this disaster.” Wow! Even the jaded press realizes what an enormous tragedy this is! After we held an improvised mini-rally, we moved in towards the building to present our list of demands. Of course we were accosted by

A Day in the Gulf by Cindy Sheehan

The man in charge of the government that both permitted and abetted the heinous corporate crime (“Drill, baby, drill!”) should, by all rights, be in terminal disgrace. Instead, much of Obama’s “base” behaves as if the First Black President is an innocent party – a victim of circumstances – rather than a facilitator of the corporate enterprise that has spawned the Mother of all Pollutions. Glenn Ford of Black Agenda Report I am in New Orleans at a People’s Emergency Response to the cataclysm in the Gulf. It would be nice if the elitists in the world felt like this was an EMERGENCY, but it’s obvious that the crisis plays into the hands of the globalists and the devastation does not bother them at all except for how this will affect them politically. World Can’t Wait organized the event in combo with activists in the New Orleans area. We have people from all over the country in attendance. Some people recognize that this is a global catastrophe—not a problem loc

ACTIVIST CINDY SHEEHAN TO LEAD PROTEST AGAINST DEEPWATER HORIZON UNIFED COMMAND CENTER IN NEW ORLEANS

Peace Activist, Cindy Sheehan to join other activists, scientists, and environmentalists in protest against BP’s “Oil-Cano” in the Gulf. CONTACT INFO: Call Cindy Sheehan, National Director of Peace of the Action: 707-301-6177 As one of the People’s responses to a historic meeting of activists from all over the country, there will be a protest at the: Deepwater Horizon Unified Response Command Center in New Orleans, LA, on Monday, June 21st from 12pm to 2pm. “Obviously, the government and British Petroleum are not as invested in this planet as the people are,” said Sheehan from New Orleans. “As usual, we the people need to force the corporatists to meet our needs.” The Command Center is located at 1250 Poydras Avenue in the Eni Petroleum building. “Acts of Civil Resistance are definitely possible,” added Sheehan. “BP and our government are obviously committing terrible crimes and criminal negligence in the Gulf of Mexico—it’s time for us to stand up.” The new Emergency People’s Coalitio

EMERGENCY PROTEST AGAINST BP AND THE US GOVERNEMENT

Protest the crimes of British Petroleum and the painfully slow and woefully inadequate response by both BP and the US Government ..

Oil-Cano by Cindy Sheehan

Image
British Petroleum, and its wholly own subsidiaries of the US Government® and US Corporate Media, talk about the Deep Horizon Oil-Cano in terms of “leak” or “spill.” Leaking is something that plumbing or snotty noses do and there’s “No use crying over spilt oil.” Right? Wrong! No one knows for sure how much oil the Oil-Cano is spewing in the gulf, but it is millions and millions of gallons (the last estimate I heard was 60,000 barrels per day). In our quest for cheap fuel and due to our tawdry love affairs with our single-person automobiles, life on this planet will be severely compromised for a very long time. Not only is our dependence on oil one of the reasons for the spew—it’s also partly responsible for our resource wars in the Middle East and Asia. BP is also the number one supplier of jet fuel to the US Air Force. We rightfully rail at BP and at this government, but things only change if and when the people use our power to make these changes.

Shenanigans

On the 7 th anniversary of the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq, eight people were arrested in front of the White House protesting the continuing crimes—you know that place! It’s a big White House—as a matter of fact it’s a HUGE White House in the middle of a park-like estate where heavily armed thugs protecting war criminals roam. It’s okay to stop and gawk and take pictures if you are decked out in Hawaiian shirts or sundresses, but exercising fundamental rights to free speech or to peaceably assemble is not. On March 20 th , about 8000 people attended a permitted and almost lethargically tame protest in Lafayette Park, which is next to the HUGE White House. Then there was a march around in circles that landed the protest right back in front of the White House. Four people decided to lie down on the sidewalk in protest (four out of 8000), and four of us decided to cross the police line (a metal barrier on the sidewalk between the street and the high iron-barred,

An Evening With Cindy Sheehan and Bill Ayers

6:30pm, Tuesday, June 15 Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Avenue What does it say about a society when ideas such as moral commitment, ethical action, and stopping War Party Politics are deemed “too dangerous” for people to hear, discuss and debate? Cindy Sheehan and Bill Ayers have recently faced having talks on these topics canceled. Instead of silently acquiescing to the chilling ice sheet moving over this county trying to freeze out radical and progressive voices and alternatives to the deadly status quo, they refused to accept cancellation and instead succeeded in reversing their 'disinvitations.' Come hear why they didn't just shut up and go away, why it matters for all of us, and what people of conscience can do to stand up and oppose the suppression of discussing these ideas. This is a free event with Q&A following the presentations. Please RSVP at adhoc4reason@gmail.com or call 847 674-0321 to let us know about how many people in your party will be atten
