Cindy Sheehan held a press conference a few minutes ago. Here is what she said:

"A kind gentleman from down the road offered us the use of his property. It's right by the barricade. He offered it because he heard about the shots fired. He didn't think that was right. He happens to be the third cousin of the person that fired the shots and so he came down and he said he supports us 100 percent. He offered us his land. We are in the middle of making that happen. We will be moving within the next few days and we are not being forced to move.

"You can ask the sheriff's department. We are cooperating fully with them and they are cooperating fully with us. This is going to be a better place. We can spread out. We don't have to lay in the ditch. We don't have to stay in a ditch. And we'll have plenty of room for parking and everything like that.

"We're going to be moving in the next few days. We just wanted to let you guys know."

When asked if it will be safer, she said, "A lot safer, yeah."

"We won't be blocking any roads. There won't be as much traffic. We're going to leave Arlington Crawford over here and leave a few people here to watch it and to tell everybody where we've moved to."

When asked about anything the camp will need at the new location, Sheehan said, "We're going to need tarps... you know, covering, because there's not as much shade over in that place."

At the conclusion of the press conferencel, Cindy Sheehan received a private phone call and walked across Camp Casey to be alone. Someone from the counter-protest area immediately came close to where she was and held a cross high in the air.

That's great news. All you peaceful innocents standing in that ditch frightenly recalls the setting of a mass execution. Shots fired, death threats, smears and lies, and even vandalizing memorials; what's next? Stay safe and be ready. These people are likely to do anything. But, most importantly: STAY STRONG IN PEACE!
