On Friday, August 26, 2011, at 7 pm, Cindy Sheehan spoke and answered questions at the Vet’s Hall in Garberville. Sheehan is an anti-war activist whose son, U.S. Army Specialist Casey Sheehan was killed by enemy action during the Iraq War. This tragedy prompted her to speak out against the wars and in early August 2005 to organize a protest camp outside President George W. Bush’s Prairie Chapel Ranch, just outside Crawford, Texas. She was also one of the nine founding members of Gold Star Families for Peace an organization that seeks to end the US occupation of Iraq and provides support for families of soldiers killed in Iraq. Cindy Sheehan is still active in both anti-war and environmental issues and is traveling on the "Peace Bus" to advocate for "Revolutionary Communities."
