Emergency rally in support of Cindy Sheehan
U.S. Troops Out of Iraq Now!

Bay Area anti-war organizations (listed below) call for an emergency rally in support of Cindy Sheehan to be held Friday, August 12, 2005 above Powell Street BART (Powell and Market Streets), San Francisco.

Last week, Gold Star Families for Peace co-founder Cindy Sheehan traveled to Crawford, Texas to pay a visit to George Bush at his vacation ranch. Cindy’s son Casey was killed in action in Iraq on April 4th, 2004. Cindy is currently camped on the side of a road a few miles from the ranch and plans to stay until Bush “tells me why my son died in Iraq. I’ve got the whole month of August off, and so does he.” Cindy has been informed that on Thursday, she and her companions will be arrested if they do not leave, as they would reportedly be considered a "national security threat" as Rice and Rumsfeld plan to visit the ranch on Friday.
