Dear Friends/Supporters of Cindy Sheehan and The Soapbox,
On July 10th, the single-minded campaigner for peace and social justice, our friend, Cindy Sheehan will turn 60 years old!
The past few years have been a struggle for Cindy: taking care of her sister Dede Miller and mourning her death, but Cindy has managed to keep the Soapbox (weekly podcast, blog and clearing house for leftwing thought/action) and her vision of a peaceful and equitable world for all, alive.
Currently, Cindy is on the board of directors for the California Freedom Coalition (working for California Independence from the USA); an original convener of the People's Congress of Resistance; member of Hands off Syria Coalition in SF Bay Area; member of the State Central Committee of the California Peace and Freedom Party; and host/executive producer of Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox. Cindy will also be a keynote speaker at a major anti-US Empire conference in Toronto and the state conference for the California National Party (For Cal Independence), both in August. Oh yeah, and she is "Gigi" to five amazing beings who inspire her to move her old bones every morning.
In 2006, Cindy published her 3rd book, Peace Mom: A Mother's Journey Through Heartache to Activism, (which was suppressed by the media--every major interview canceled the day after publication) which covered the first year after her historic protest as Camp Casey in Crawford Tx and today she is working on her EIGHTH book: Peace Mom II: A Mother's Journey from Activism to Heartache and Revolution. Peace Mom II will cover the subsequent years since 2006 and a draft of the foreword can be read HERE.
Cindy is obviously still single-minded in her struggle for peace and social justice, but we at Team Soapbox need your help.
Please consider making a donation to Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox in honor of the birth date of this dedicated worker for the international working-class.
Everyone who donates $30 or above will receive a signed copy of Peace Mom II upon completion (projected publishing date October 15).
