Cindy Sheehan will join other like-minded peace activists to have a presence near the expensive resort on Martha’s Vineyard where President Obama will be vacationing the week of August 23-30.

 
From her home in California, Ms. Sheehan released this statement:
 
“There are several things that we wish to accomplish with this protest on Martha’s Vineyard.
First of all, no good social or economic change will come about with the continuation or escalation of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. We simply can’t afford to continue this tragically expensive foreign policy.
 
Secondly, we as a movement need to continue calling for an immediate end to the occupations even when there is a Democrat in the Oval Office. There is still no Noble Cause no matter how we examine the policies.
 
Thirdly, the body bags aren’t taking a vacation and as the US led violence surges in Afghanistan and Pakistan, so are the needless deaths on every side.
 
And, finally, if the right-wing can force the government to drop any kind of public option or government supported health care, then we need to exert the same kind of pressure to force a speedy end to the occupations.”
 
Cindy Sheehan will arrive on the Vineyard on Tuesday, August 25th.

    I hope that the MSM will cover the events at Martha’s Vineyard like they covered Cindy Sheehan at the Crawford Ranch. 24/7.

    Not sweep the news under the rug as usual.

    You better believe the media is going to sweep this under the rug! They never cared about the wars, the liberal politicians work for the exact same banker war mongers the republican right does. It was all orchestrated to keep you all in line. Lord Obama works for the EXACT same bankers and industrialists Bush did. Obama serves Goldman Sachs …. Bush had family that WORKED IN Goldman Sachs!!! Get the picture?
