(Williamsville, VT)…Peace activist and war tax resister, Cindy Sheehan, will give a presentation on Friday, Sept.27 between 7:15-9pm, at Amazing Planet! Farm & Justice Center, 218 Depot Road, Williamsville, Vermont, close to Brattleboro (for directions go to http://www.amazingplanetfarm.com/). Her talk is titled, “Peace Mom: A Mother’s Journey through Heartache and Activism.” Cindy’s son Casey, was killed in the U.S. war on Iraq. She came to international attention in 2005 for her extended antiwar protest as she and many others camped outside former President Bush’s Texas ranch. On April 4, the 8-year anniversary of the day Casey was killed in action, Cindy began a “Tour de Peace” from his gravesite in Vacaville, CA. This cross-country bicycle trip ended in Washington, DC, on July 3rd.
Cindy’s presentation and the Sept.27-29 weekend gathering of war tax resisters and supporters are open to all. The theme of the gathering is War Tax Resistance in Connection: Helping One Another. The rest of the weekend will look at war tax resisters and the large network of supporters and family members connected to them. For those attending Cindy’s Friday evening presentation only, we suggest a donation of $10 to defray her travel costs. The gathering admission is sliding scale. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
