Houston moms heading to Crawford to protest war
From 11 News KHOU Staff Reports
More protesters from the Houston-area are headed to President Bush's Crawford ranch.
They loaded their cars and left from the Heights area Wednesday afternoon.
They're upset by the mounting casualties in Iraq and are opposed to the Bush administration's handling of the war.
More importantly, they say they want to support a woman who lost her son in Iraq.
That woman, Cindy Sheehan, started the protest. She says she won't leave until President Bush meets with her.
Sheehan calls the protest area "Camp Casey" after her 24-year-old son.
Officers are keeping the several dozen demonstrators some five miles away from the entrance to the ranch.
