Iraq war protester Sheehan to visit UK
By Jenifer Johnston

CINDY Sheehan, the campaigning American mother who lost her soldier son in Iraq, is to visit the UK before the end of the year.
Sheehan’s representatives have said that the visit, thought to include trips to Downing Street and the Scottish parliament as well as a number of speaking events, will also include a second meeting with Glasgow mother Rose Gentle, whose 19-year-old son Gordon was killed in Basra in June 2004.

Sheehan and Gentle were keynote speakers at an anti-war rally in Washington last weekend.

The American, whose 24-year-old son Casey was killed in Iraq in April 2004, has become an international figurehead for anti-war activists.

Organisers of an anti-war rally in Edinburgh on November 12 have revealed that they are hopeful she will be in the UK by then and that she will join protesters in a Scotland-wide demonstration.

Karen Pomer, spokeswoman for Sheehan, said that although the campaigner had become very busy, coming to the UK was a priority.

“I only have Cindy’s immediate schedule, but it is true that we are trying to arrange something for the future. It looks like she is going to be free in November, so that might be a possibility.

If Cindy's itinerary for her UK visit includes Portsmouth, I'd love to have the opportunity of meeting this lady!

She is actually going to visit far left liberals, P.E.T.A who are known for their violent protest actions. Try just an hr search on all you can find on P.E.T.A and you will find who supports the enemy of peace. These radicals must be stopped and I call for people that are sane and true Americans to put a stop to these people who cry for peace and are the ones who are violent.

A.V.M.

Great to hear she is heading over here - we love you Cindy!! Hope I get a chance to meet you at the International Peace Conference.

P.S Isn't P.E.T.A an animal rights group?? What are you going on about??
