Cindy Sheehan, PEACE MOM and Anti war activist, is Speaking in Asheville 23 October 2009 at 7pm at First Christian Church on Oak Street in downtown Asheville. The Public is invited. The event is sponsored by Veterans for Peace local chapter 99

Cindy became famous and attracted international attention in August 2005, when she traveled to President Bush's Prairie Chapel Ranch, just outside Crawford, Texas, demanding a second meeting with the President to ask “just what was the noble cause Casey died for?” Her son Casey died in Iraq while in the US military. Cindy went to Crawford after speaking at a VFP convention in Dallas, Texas. Eight local Asheville area PEACE activists and veterans, and many others, joined her in Crawford where they camped in a field near the edge of President Bush’s ranch.

Cindy is one of the nine founding members of Gold Star Families for Peace. She continues protesting and Demonstrating for PEACE, speaking out against President Obama’s Iraq and Afghan war policy, and on her weekly radio show

Also speaking is Lt. Col Robert Bowman , USAF Retired and President of the Institute for Space and Security Studies and the recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, and the President's Medal of Veterans for Peace. He is one of the country's foremost authorities on national security. Colonel Bowman flew 101 combat missions as a fighter pilot in Vietnam.
