Cindy Sheehan & Others Protest Drones at CIA & Cheney's 1/16

WASHINGTON - There is a new peace coalition in town called Peace of the Action.

Peace of the Action is the brainchild of Peace Mom, Cindy Sheehan, who has

been striving to make the concept of peace a reality since her son, Casey,

was killed in Iraq in April 2004.

“Peace of the Action will be setting up Camp Out Now on the lawn of the

Washington Monument beginning March 13th and this new peace camp will be the

launching pad for daily direct actions against the seat of our government; A

government that is involved in so many wars, invasions, bombings and other

foreign violence that it is hard to keep track.”

When asked if it is “legal” to set up Camp in Washington, DC, Ms. Sheehan

was emphatic in stating, “Camping on the lawn of the Washington Monument has

‘questionable’ legality but our actions have absolute moral authority; just

as the state’s actions have apparent legality, but inherent immorality.”

Peace of the Action is sponsoring one event this weekend:

SATURDAY, JANUARY 16th: Protest the murderous CIA drone-bombing program in front of CIA HQ in Langley, VA from 1-4. Speakers include Cindy Sheehan; former Green Party Presidential Candidate, Cynthia McKinney; three-timeNobel Peace Prize Nominee, Kathy Kelly; Debra Sweet, National Director of

World Can't Wait and many others. The protest will conclude with a march to

former Vice President, Dick Cheney’s new home in Langley and an attempted “Citizens Arrest,” for the charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and other high crimes and misdemeanors.
