8/19 Update: Cindy Sheehan had to leave Camp Casey yesterday to tend to her mother, who suffered a stroke in Los Angeles. Other military families have pledged to keep Camp Casey going in her absence. Today, Democracy Now broadcast an interview with Cindy Sheehan that was conducted in the airport just before Ms. Sheehan flew out. She announced that there would be a bus caravan that would end in Washington, DC by September 24th.

On August 17th, over 1500 vigils were held all over the US in solidarity with Cindy Sheehan, who is camping in Crawford, Texas as she waits for President Bush to agree to meet with her. Her son Casey was a soldier who was killed in Iraq last year. TrueMajority, MoveOn.org, and Democracy For America helped to organize the vigils.

8/17: Hundreds have joined Cindy Sheehan in Crawford, Texas, to demand that the president come out and talk with her. Sheehan will be moving her camp closer to Bush's ranch after she was offered the use of a piece of land by a supporter. The white crosses to honor dead soldiers that were set up at her current camp will not be moved when she relocates. They were vandalized Monday night, and people will stay at the camp to monitor them.
