October 17: Occupy Sacramento

"Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan joined the Occupy Sacramento Movement Saturday, Oct. 17. Sheehan stood by her pledge to join others and occupy Caesar Chavez Park Saturday night which resulted in her arrest. Other protesters were arrested including a gentleman with cerebral palsy in a motorized wheelchair who was the first to be released."

and here's the link to her speech at Occupy Sacramento:


In 2005, after her son Casey was killed in Baghdad just 5 days after being stationed in Baghdad, Cindy Sheehan staged a vigil outside the Bush property in Crawford, Texas and people around the country in more than 1,700 locations staged vigils to end the war in support of her efforts.
