Cindy Sheehan's Press Conference, August 29, 2005
Monday 29 August 2005
Cindy opened today's press conference by expressing her concern for the people affected by Hurricane Katrina. Cindy said that the people of Louisiana are in her prayers. Iraqi Veterans Against the War then called for veterans around the country to help with the disaster relief in the affected areas. It was announced that supplies donated to Camp Casey will be delivered to New Orleans when the camp is broken down on Wednesday.
Kelly Doherty, a veteran of the Iraq war, raised the issue of the National Guard being stretched thin at home. She said that with troops and equipment deployed in Iraq, the Guard will not be able to provide the resources they usually bring to disaster relief efforts.
