Summaries
Long Description
In writings, speeches, and an interview conducted in the wake of the famous Camp Casey summer in Crawford, Texas, Cindy Sheehan embraces her personal transformation into America's most outspoken advocate for peace. From her trip to the World Social Forum in Venezuela to her ouster from the State of the Union address, Sheehan continues to speak out on topics such as civil disobedience, US foreign policy, New Orleans, military recruitment, her son Casey's death on his fifth day in Iraq, and soldiers who resist.
Main Description
Five Days After Cindy Sheehan's Son Casey Arrived in Iraq, he was killed in an ambush. Having lost her son, she has dedicated herself to the mission of not just ending this war, but to addressing the underlying causes that lead us-as individuals and as a society-to accept violence and war as a solutions to our problems. Cindy says "another way is possible." Dear President Bush is an exploration of those "other ways," a passionate wakeup call to join forces to counter military enlistment, to build community-driven democracy, and to join people around the world to spread resistance and work toward peace and social justice.
