Cindy Sheehan to provoke the Second American Revolution July 4th, 2006-Hunger Strike at White House!

Gold Star Families for Peace will announce a historic hunger strike against the war in Iraq. At 5pm, they will sit down in front of the White House to eat their last meal and hold a press conference before beginning the fast at the same location in the morning of July 4 at 10am.

“We’ve marched, held vigils, lobbied Congress, camped out at Bush’s ranch. We’ve even gone to jail. Now it’s time to do more,” says peace mom Cindy Sheehan. “While others are celebrating July 4th with barbeques, we’ll be showing our patriotism by putting our bodies on the line to bring our troops home.”

Hundreds of celebrities, veterans, mothers, and concerned citizens across the country will participate in a rolling fast. Strikers include musicians Willie Nelson and Michael Franti, actors Danny Glover, Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon, Gold Star parents Cindy Sheehan and Fernando Suarez, legendary faster and comedian Dick Gregory, environmental activist Diane Wilson, Iraq war veteran Geoffrey Millard and Gulf War vet Michael McPherson, labor leader Dolores Huerta http://www.commondreams.org/news200...

JOIN CINDY SHEEHAN AT THE WHITE HOUSE!!

If you cannot join Cindy in DC, please do something to provoke the revolution in your hometown As the July 4th weekend approaches, we want to encourage your group to think about planning antiwar actions during the holiday weekend. July 4th celebrations take place in cities and towns, communities small and large, urban centers and rural locations.

Sometimes antiwar organizers have stayed away from these highly "patriotic" gatherings, assuming an unfriendly response. But this year, given the deep public sentiment against the war in Iraq and the very low approval ratings for President Bush, it might make sense to organize something that will allow more people to express their own opposition to the war.

You’ll know what’s most appropriate for your community, but here are several ideas of things you could plan:

1) Organize an antiwar contingent in the official July 4th parade in your area. If you do this be sure to invite as many people as possible to join your contingent, you’ll want to look as strong and as representative of your communities as possible. An alternative to marching in the parade is to have your folks line up along the parade route. If you do this you’ll want to be in a location that affords the most visibility, both for the people in the parade and for other folks watching it, including the media.

2) Hold a vigil or picket, or set up a literature table, in a busy shopping area. The July 4th weekend is usually a major shopping period with lots of folks hitting the malls. Try to hand out educational materials, gather signatures on petitions, or get people to sign letters or postcards to their elected officials. Use this as a time to gather signatures on the Voters for Peace Pledge (http://www.votersforpeace.us/) and/or the Declaration of Peace nonviolent action pledge (http://declarationofpeace.org).

3) Use the weekend to get your message into the local media.

* Organize people to call into your local radio talk shows throughout the weekend. * Plan ahead to send in letters to the editor in order to get them printed on and around the holiday. * Call your local paper to see if someone from your group can submit an Op Ed piece for publication over the holiday weekend. http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/20...

Locals to join national fast for peace

WOODBURY — About 10 people are expected to participate in the July 4 "Troops Home Fast" — a nationwide fast to end the war in Iraq — by gathering outside a congressman’s Woodbury office.

Participants will spend 12 hours, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, in front of the office of U.S. Rep. Robert Andrews, D-1, of Haddon Heights, according to members of the Coalition for Peace and Justice and the South Jersey Campaign for Peace and Justice.

The office is at 63 N. Broad St.

Nationally known celebrities and activists, led by Cindy Sheehan and Fernando Suarez del Solar, whose sons were killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom, will start their fast at 12:01 a.m. July 4. Some will continue their fast until Sept. 21, which is International Peace Day.

I suggest that for every day you skip a meal, you send $5.00 to your local food bank...come on people, let’s start to care about each other. Our government and the governments of most countries are out of control power hungry pigs who care only about money and power and nothing about the citizens...we need to start taking it upon ourselves to go around these disgusting parasites and start uniting with our fellow citizens around the planet to make governments as we all suffer under them obsolete. We need to send governments the message that we don’t need them or want them in our lives any more.

In the United States, the government tells us that we must rely upon ourselves and not ask the government for anything, welfare is out, school support is out, universal health care is out, etc...so let’s all do just that, and let’s all tell the government that they should also rely upon themselves and stop asking the citizens for anything. If we refuse to give them anything, they will have to change.

If the government is doing nothing, which I agree with wholeheartedly, why do we keep sending them money. The do nothing for us, produce nothing, and are seemingly accountable to no one. Stop sending them money goddamnit!!!! Oh, I forgot, they do produce something, namely death and destruction worldwide!

How on Gods great earth can anyone classify Cindy Sheehan as a Gold Star Mom? Any Mother that voluntarily gives up her young son in divorce shouldn’t be called a mom at all, much less a Gold Star mom. In the beginning of her protests, I was sympathetic and behind her cause. Since then, I’ve come to realize that she is nothing more than a self serving "Glory Grabber". She is more concerned about getting her picture on TV, Newspapers and Magizine covers than initiating any usefull change. Saddam Cindy!!

You and all like you will be responsible for the failing of the US economy. Sheehan is in the pockets of the radical islamic terrorists and only encourages them to continue their crusades against the US.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
