Cindy Sheehan is running for Congress in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district.  Since I live in New York, I cannot vote for her, but I can contribute to her campaign and support her. 

I know her and know that she will work for these things in Congress.  I know that Nancy Pelosi, in spite of what may come out of her mouth, is part of the ongoing occupation of Iraq and the continuing decline of US democracy. 

Cindy’s message is one of people before profit:
•    US troops completely withdrawn from Iraq and Afghanistan
•    US bases closed world-wide
•    Pentagon budget slashed
•    Money used to improve schools, infrastructure, security and provide Universal Health Care
•    Humane and comprehensive immigration solutions that guarantee a quick path to legalization
•    Sustainable and renewable power for our homes and cars
•    LGBT should have complete protection from hate crimes, the freedom to marry the person they love and protection from discrimination in the work place
•    A humane foreign policy that recognizes the rights of everyone on Planet Earth to be free from violence and occupation
•    The rights for workers to unionize and repeal NAFTA and other “free” trade agreements.
