Cindy Sheehan Sets Up “Camp OUT NOW” in Antiwar Protest


******************************

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan is restarting her
campaign against wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
today, setting up tents and teaching protest
seminars near the Washington Monument.

Dubbed “Camp OUT NOW,” the protest is geared to
pressure President Obama and Democrats, whom
Sheehan says have abandoned the anti-war cause
now that they have control of the White House and
Congress.

“Obama said there’d be one combat battalion coming
home per month, and that has not happened,”
Sheehan says. “We still have significant troops in
Iraq, and he’s ramped up in Afghanistan.

“I don’t think this is what people understood they
were voting for. I think they were voting for a
change.”

White House officials declined to comment.
