Sacramento Anti-War Protest Draws Hundreds
Sacramento Anti-War

Gathering for a anti-war rally at 16th & Broadway in Sacramento on Saturday October 15, 2005, a few hundred Sacromentans, showed their support for the anti-war movement, and called for an end to the US led occupation of Iraq. Joining the protest was Cindy Sheehan, as well as the Capoeira Arts Academy Performing Group. Pictures from the event can be viewed here.

Earlier in the week, Cindy Sheehan, the grieving mother whose courageous battle to meet with George W. Bush at his Crawford, Texas ranch this August has reinvigorated the anti-war movement, delivered a letter today to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office at the State Capitol in Sacramento pleading with him to pull California National Guard troops out of Iraq.

Sheehan’s sister, Dede Miller, and members of Veterans for Peace, Gold Star Families for Peace, Military Families Speak Out & CODEPINK Women for Peace accompanied Sheehan as she walked from the Capitol’s West Steps, through the Capitol, to the front of the governor’s office. The CA Highway Patrol stopped the group from going into the governor’s office, but Sheehan was able to meet briefly with one of the Governor’s staff while her supporters and the media waited.
