Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Cindy Sheehan coming to Australia

Press Release:
Cindy Sheehan and Dr Salam Ismael will speak at a public meeting in Sydney on Tuesday May 23 at 7pm at the Seymour Centre, corner City Rd and Cleveland St.

CINDY SHEEHAN is one of the most prominent voices is the US anti-war movement, and has become a symbol of the resurgance in the anti-war movement in the US over thelast year. She began campaigning against the Iraq war after her son, Casey, was killed serving in Iraq as a US soldier. She captured national media attention after setting up a peace camp outside George Bush's Texas ranch in 2005, demanding to know for "what noble cause" her son died. Cindy is one of the founding members of Gold Star Families for Peace, formed by families who have lost relatives in the Iraq war and campaignign for an end to the occupation.

DR SALAM ISMAEL is secretary general of the Doctors for Iraq Society, leading teams of volunteer doctors in crisis situations in Iraq. His trip will be an opportunity to hear first-hand about health conditions in occupied Iraq, and to raise awareness about the humanitarian plight of Iraqis living under occupation. Dr Ismael was one of the first independent observers to enter the city Fallujah after it was destroyed by US and allied occupation forces in November 2004. The Doctors for Iraq Society has brought to the world's attention numerous US atrocities in western Iraq. They are campaigning for an independent inquiry into human rights abuses in Fallujah.

Cindy Sheehan and Dr Ismael are speaking in Sydney and Brisbane ahead of attending the National Peace Conference in Melbourne on May 27.

Here's hoping that Ms Sheehan is NOT entering this country on a TORIST visa because if she addresses a meeting she will be slapped in a cell by the stasi like the last anti-war visitor.

I think Honest John and Honest Phil got a bit of a surprise at the wave of negatve publicity they copped from their little anti-freedom-of-speech stunt vis a vis Scott Parkin.

I doublt they'd try the same thing with someone of Sheehan's global stature.

They are, after all just gutless little control-freak cockroaches scurrying around the corridors of power trying to dodge the cleaners late at night...

Baygon... Where's some Parliametary Strength Baygon...

Baygon won't help. Cockroaches can hold their breath for 40 minutes and these two have been hanging around in their own stench for the last 10 years.
