Cindy Sheehan marches on Washington...
And then came Cindy Sheehan.Tens of thousands of anti-war protesters (and hopefully many, many more) are expected to converge on Washington on September 24th.
The woman whose story has ignited the anti-war movement spoke about her struggle to turn her personal grief into a call for action. Her words, peppered into the late evening Philly air by loud-speaker, brought a powerful intimacy to the suffering wrought by the Iraq war.
"This is about flesh and blood, about right and wrong," she said, threatening that elected officials, "do the right thing or you are fired."
Sheehan, along with...

Iraq Veterans Against the War
Veterans For Peace
...has joined the 'Bring them Home Now Tour', which takes "Camp Casey's all over America," (at a dizzying pace of 28 states in 25 days) and will descend on Washington DC on September 24th.
