Meeting the Historic Challenge:

War, Peace and the 2007 California Democratic Party Convention

As part of PDA’s “Organize, Mobilize and Deliver the Progressive Vote” Tour, Norman’s appearance will kick-off barnstorming of the state, leading up to the California Democratic Convention in San Diego, on April 27 - 29, and culminating in what is sure to be memorable events sponsored by PDA and others.

Author Norman Solomon ("War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death") will be a guest speaker at Sacramento for Democracy’s April meeting. Norman is a nationally syndicated columnist on media and politics, and a newly elected delegate to the State Democratic Party from the 6th Assembly District. He last spoke to us at the "http://sacramentofordemocracy.org/?q=node/view/3444">Out Of Iraq Forum" that was held in Sacramento on January 7, 2006 (with Cindy Sheehan, Sean Penn, David Dionisi, Charlie Brown & Bill Durston).

And it’s like Homecoming when Cindy comes to town!

Cindy Sheehan is the mother of Spc. Casey Sheehan who was killed in Bush’s war of terror on 04/04/04. She is the co-founder and president of Gold Star Families for Peace and The Camp Casey Peace Institute. Author (“Peace Mom: A Mother's Journey Through Heartache to Activism”) and revered hell raiser for the Peace Movement, Cindy is also on the National Advisory Panel for PDA. We welcome our homegirl with love and pride!

Those that do not RSVP will be seated first come, first served, if available.

We will meet this month at the Coloma Center Auditorium (4623 T St. - Map Here).

We'll also show a sneak preview of the documentary film "War Made Easy" -- based on Norman Solomon’s book. The Los Angeles Times called the book "brutally persuasive" and "a must-read for those who would like greater context with their bitter morning coffee, or to arm themselves for the debates about Iraq that are still to come."

**Due to time constraints at this event, we will not be able to do our presentation on becoming Carbon Neutral. We will try to reschedule this at a later date. Sorry for any inconvenience.

We hope to see you there!
