Cindy Day 25
So it is official, Casey had his blood shed in Iraq for OIL. He died so we could pay over $3.00/gallon for gas. Like I suspected all along, my dear, sweet son, almost 1900 others, and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis died so the oil fields wouldn't "fall into the hands of terrorists" and so George and his immoral band of greedy robber barons could become wealthier. Like I have said all along: how can these people sleep at night and how can they choke down their food knowing it is purchased off of the flesh and blood of others? We have found our "Noble Cause." And it is OIL. This man and his handlers need to be stopped.

"Bring the Troops Home Now" Bus Tour Began Today Three buses left Crawford, Texas, this morning carrying military and Gold Star families, veterans of the Iraq War and veterans of previous wars. These buses will travel different routes across the country, converging in Washington, DC on September 21, for the United for Peace and Justice Mobilization September 24th-26th. Cindy Sheehan is on the Southern bus route for the first two days and planned to meet with Rep. Lloyd Doggett today and Reps. Ron Paul and Tom Delay tomorrow. The bus will not go to New Orleans, as had been planned, but is carrying supplies as close as possible to those who need them. Please give them a warm welcome at the stop nearest you. //www.bringthemhomenowtour.org/
Bring Camp Casey to YOUR Congressperson
Cindy sent a letter to all the members of Congress holding them responsible for taking us into war and therefore ending this war. We need you to create a Camp Casey outside the offices of those who are not agreeing to a meeting. Sign up here to join in, check in daily to see who is answered and who hasn’t, and support this effort to hold our leaders responsible and accountable. We have a short window, we want to have contacted all the members by the time Cindy and the buses arrive in Washington, DC for the mass mobilization on September 24th. We will be at the offices of those who aren't responding on September 26th to lobby them and let them experience the pressure from citizens' voices emboldened at Camp Casey. //meetwiththemothers.org/
