North Brazoria County Democrats Send Supplies and Support to Cindy Sheehan
On Saturday, August 20, 2005, after their monthly meeting, the North Brazoria County Democrats will send a group of Good Will ambassadors to Crawford, TX to deliver supplies and show support for Cindy Sheehan. The caravan will deliver sunscreen, bottled water and a variety of other sundries to the grieving mother who lost her son, Casey Sheehan, in Iraq in April 2004. They are expecting departure time to be between 10:15 and 10:45 am.
Cindy Sheehan, one of the founders of Gold Star Families for Peace - an organization made up of families who have lost loved ones in the war on Iraq - is engaged in a protest at the gates of Bush's Ranch in Crawford, TX. She is demanding to meet with Bush so he can explain his justifications for starting the War in Iraq, in which her son was killed.
Joe Parra, President of the NBCD says, “We support Cindy and others who have lost a loved one in Iraq. With all the questions surrounding our involvement in Iraq, it’s the people like Cindy who deserve answers the most.
