Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan Speaks About Her Son's Death, Iraq, and Military Spending01/03/13 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up on the first part of the program we'll speak with peace activist Cindy Sheehan who will be speaking in Sarasota this Saturday. But first one listener comment about yesterday's show on which we talked about the fiscal cliff budget deal. Here's what one listener had to say.
Cindy Sheehan became a peace activist after her son Casey- who as a member of the Army's First Cavalry Division- was killed in 2004 during the US invasion and war in Iraq. She made headlines when she and a group of supporters set up a peace camp outside President Bush's Texas ranch in 2005.
She's twice run for office - once for Congress and last year for vice president- with actress Roseanne Barr who ran for president on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket.
She'll be speaking this Saturday at the Sudakoff Center on the New College campus this Saturday morning at 11AM. FMI
