Cindy Sheehan to speak in Charlottesville
Famous grieving mom, Texas ranch squatter, peace activist, and general thorn in President Bush’s side, Cindy Sheehan will speak in Charlottesville on May 17 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center. Sheehan made national news when she camped outside Bush’s Texas home to ask him why her son, Casey, who was killed in action in Baghdad in 2004, had to die. Since then, Sheehan has become a powerful, and controversial figure in the anti-war movement. The event is being organized by the Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice.
