Bay Area Woman Gets Support With Protest


CBS

(CBS 5) A Bay Area woman's peace vigil outside of President Bush's ranch is gaining momentum.

Cindy Sheehan of Vacaville says she will stay outside the Crawford, Texas ranch until President Bush meets with her. Now a growing number of people -- including two women from Southern California -- have come to camp out alongside Sheehan in support of her cause.

Sheehan says realistically, she does not expect President Bush to talk with her. But she says she is getting her message across.

"Sixty-one, 62 percent of the American people believe that Iraq was a mistake, and they believe that the troops should be coming home," said Sheehan. "This is giving them something to do, something to focus on, and a way to get their voices heard."

Sheehan's son Casey died on duty in Iraq last year.

I live in Northern California, and we're so proud of Cindy continuing this effort to get attention to Bush's illegal war. I wish she could get some celebrities to go the protest site, and set up a concert there which would bring major attention in the media. We need some major stars and names to come on out there. Rumsfeld wants a 'Celebration of 911'?? Cindy's concert would be about the TRUTH!

The time is now!

Love&Blessings

I agree!

I have never heard my fellow countrymen so silent,this scares me!
Now is the time to be brave and fight for America and for what it stands.

Your silence has spoken volumes,that is not America!
Freedom of speach is why my grandmother and yours moved here.

You have the power to stop a child from DYING in a war based on a LIE so men could profit.

It will be your greatest accomplishment!

Save a LIFE and stop the illegal Bush war.
Did America's musician once put a record together for a cause,maybe you can do it now.
