Activist Virginia Rodino stated, “The Iraqi War was based on a pack of lies!”

Once Again, Charges of Anti-Semitism Were Based On False Evidence
17 Aug 2005
Cindy Sheehan, like many others who have stood up to Bush, has been painted with the brush of anti-Semitism based on false evidence. This is just one of the many tactics used by scum bags like Drudge who parrot any false charge that comes their way.

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.
