How to Get to Crawford
To: Texas PDA'ers!
From: Sherry Bohlen, PDA National Field Director
Date: August 8, 2005
I just spoke with Cindy Sheehan and she asked me to thank everyone for your support and encouragement. She looks forward to seeing many of you join her in Crawford but asked that I tell you that anyone coming on Thursday might be risking arrest.
The local authorities have informed her that as of Thursday she and anyone standing with her will be considered a national security risk and will be arrested. We're asking as many people as possible to arrive at the camp outside Bush's ranch on Wednesday evening and plan to spend the night camping with Cindy. In case the powers-that-be decide to arrest Cindy at 12:01 Thursday morning, we want to have a strong contingent of support for her!
I'll be there. I hope you'll join me.
Following are directions to Crawford from Austin:
Take IH-35 North towards Waco. As you enter the Waco area exit Hwy 6 to FM
185 which will take you directly into Crawford.
Go straight through the light at FM 317. Take a right at the Lutheran Church
(Prairie Chapel Rd). Travel approx. 3 miles (the road will wind around a
bunch). The camp is on the left where Prairie Chapel Rd. intersects Morgan
Another route to Crawford:
Take IH-35 North. In Beltan take the Killeen exit (Hwy 190) in Belton.
Turn left as if you are going to Killeen. As the road curves, go straight
on FM 317. You will pass through several small towns and will end up in
Crawford. Turn left at the first light.
Take a right at the Lutheran Church (Prairie Chapel Rd). Travel approx. 3
miles (the road will wind around a bunch). The camp is on the left where
Prairie Chapel Rd and Morgan Rd. intersect.

Many Texas PDA'ers have responded to say that they called the White House and will be traveling to Crawford! Supporters from many other states are making their way to Crawford as we speak! The anti-war movement is alive and well!
As a CodePink friend of mine says..... Power to the Peaceful!
in peace and solidarity
