Sheehan Announces First Draft of International People’s Declaration of Peace
—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
MARTHA’S VINEYARD—Cindy Sheehan spoke before the White House press, international and main stream media, and addressed an assemblage of peace movement leaders on Martha’s Vineyard on Thursday, August 27.
Sheehan called for an amplified re-invigoration of the peace movement to join her unequivocal war opposition. She is initiating a first draft of her proposed ‘International People’s Declaration of Peace’, subnamed ‘IP-DOP’, to be read at her speaking event on the Vineyard on Saturday, August 29 at the Katharine Cornell Theater in Tisbury.
Immediately following the press conference, supporters erected the Camp Casey tent compound in a West Tisbury field across the stream from Obama’s Chilmark summer residence. Honks from pro-peace well wishers were followed by a swift succession of vehicles which contained the President and his entourage, which passed alongside the Peace Rally at the Camp Casey site.
Later Thursday, Sheehan is expected to join peace leaders for a sea excursion on the racing sloop nicknamed the ‘SS Camp Casey’ for the first meeting of IPDOP organizers.

The Silence of the Antiwar Movement is Deafening
Cindy Sheehan’s Lonely Vigil in Obamaland
by John Walsh
Cindy Sheehan will be at Martha’s Vineyard beginning August 25 a short way from Obama’s vacation paradise of the celebrity elite but very far from the Afghanistan and Pakistan and Iraq where the body bags and cemeteries fill up each day as Obama’s wars rage on. She will remain there from August 25 through August 29 and has issued a call for all peace activists to join her there. For those of us close by in the New England states and in New York City, there would seem to be a special obligation to get to Martha’s Vineyard as soon as we can.
A funny thing has happened on Cindy Sheehan’s long road from Crawford, Texas, to Martha’s Vineyard. Many of those who claim to lead the peace movement and who so volubly praised her actions in Crawford, TX, are not to be seen. Nor heard. The silence in fact is deafening, or as Cindy put it in an email to this writer, “crashingly deafening.”
