CINDY SHEEHAN AND THE PERMANENT PEACE MOVEMENT.
We interviewed Cindy Sheehan on The L.A. STEEL FM. RADIO SHOW, Tuesday night and replayed the interview on Wednesday night’s internet show. The program is now archived. Cindy was also on our program one month after Katrina . We interviewed Cindy ,by phone as she was delivering food and aid to the people of New Orleans from her bus.
If anyone has followed the work of Cindy Sheehan for the past three years, they can not be unimpressed by her single mindedness, and her ability to lead her organization . She has been greatly helped by millions of individuals who believe in her mission. Cindy has invisioned a world peace movement; that will capture the hearts and minds of all people.
She stated , she agreed with Tom Hayden; who said,” the Anti War Movement is self defeating. Just as in the Vietnam protests, the Anti War Movement had focused on only one goal, to end the war. Once the war was ended so was the Anti War Movement.” Forty years later Americans are facing the same problems we faced in Vietnam. Had there been a permanent peace movement to keep pressure on the U.S Government, there would not have been an Iraq War. A permanent and vigilant peace movement, could have prevented the wars in Iraq , Afghanistan, Dafur, Sudan , The Congo and any other conflict involving the U.S.
