CINDY SHEEHAN
Anti-war activist and author Cindy Sheehan, who lost her son to the Iraq war, will stop in Kansas City as part of her Seat of Our Pants Soapbox Tour.  She will be discussing her latest on-line internet book, MTYH AMERICA: 10 GREATEST MYTHS OF THE ROBBER CLASS AND THE CASE FOR REVOLUTION. Cindy's other books include PEACE MOM; NOT ONE MORE MOTHER'S SON; and DEAR PRESIDENT BUSH.

On August 6, 2005, Sheehan created a makeshift camp in a ditch by the side of the road about three miles (5 km) from President Bush's Prairie Chapel Ranch near Crawford, Texas. Sheehan started her protest the day the President started a planned five-week vacation. A few days later, the media began referring to Sheehan's camp as "Camp Casey."

Gold Star Families for Peace, of which Sheehan is a founding member, released a TV commercial featuring Sheehan, broadcast on Crawford and Waco cable channels near Bush's ranch.

In September, the Bring Them Home Now Tour was organized by Gold Star Families for Peace, Iraq Veterans Against the War, Military Families Speak Out, and Veterans For Peace. It was a rolling anti-war protest against the Iraq War, beginning in Crawford, Texas, traveling three routes across the country (with rallies along the way) and culminating in a rally in Washington, DC in September 2005. It was inspired by and featured Cindy Sheehan as a speaker at many rallies.

Sheehan's activism continued into the winter of 2005/2006. She met with Senator John McCain, and later called him a "warmonger". She later protested Hillary Clinton's stance on the war, stating that Clinton must either speak out against the war or risk losing her job, and urged Governor Janet Napolitano to withdraw the Arizona National Guard from Iraq at a rally in Phoenix.

Cindy's current tour is directed towards social and economic justice issues as outlined in MTYH AMERICA: 10 GREATEST MYTHS OF THE ROBBER CLASS AND THE CASE FOR REVOLUTION.
