Emergency Statement by the Supporters Group of the Four Unlawfully Arrested
16 Aug 2005
On August 2005, Japanese right-wing groups who hoisted banners proclaiming support for militarism and Xenophobia had a big conference with six thousand participants at Yasukuni Shrine, Tokyo. At the same time as these rightists, politicians arguing in favor of Japan’s nuclear armament, including Shinzo Abe and Shintaro Ishihara, and a number of Cabinet and Diet members visited the shrine to offer their “condolences” to the war dead on the 60th anniversary of the “end” of the war.

List of Massachusetts Vigils for Cindy Sheehan

Vigil for Cindy Sheehan

Wednesday, August 17, 2005 7:30PM

Cindy Sheehan, mother of Army Specialist Casey Sheehan who was killed in Iraq, continues her vigil outside President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. She was recently joined by more moms who lost a child in Iraq and other military families. Meanwhile President Bush continues his five-week vacation and pledged Thursday to keep U.S. troops in Iraq—meaning more moms will lose a child.

Cindy has asked supporters to start candlelight vigils in their communities to support her and call for an end to the war. So, MoveOn is teaming up with True Majority and Democracy for America to host Vigils for Cindy Sheehan on Wednesday, August 17th, to show our solidarity with Cindy.

For Journalists on the Left, the Mix is Not Propitious
16 Aug 2005
Modified: 01:07:04 AM
It was bad enough when publishers and editors demanded that stories exhibit a straght-jacket balance that gave equal weight to lying with truthtelling. Now editors are going for a news “mix” that balances the politics of various stories in the days news “package.”

Christopher Hitchens Smears Cindy Sheehan
15 Aug 2005
Cindy Sheehan’s gallant anti-War vigil outside of the ranch of our half-demented President, George W. Bush, Jr., in Crawford Texas, is drawing massive support from around the country. It is also attracting pro-war snakes, like that former “Nation” magazine ranter, Christopher Hitchens. A Brit, who comes across as an insufferable Tory, he accused Sheehan of trying to “ventriloquize the dead” and of spouting off “sinister piffle.”
