Cindy Sheehan in Keene 6/30 & Durham 7/1 [update]
« on: April 06, 2009, 05:56:33 pm »

[See my April 30 message below for update details.]

* Here's the original message I sent to Cindy.
Hi Cindy and friends.
* Cindy had let me use 2 or her articles in my 2005 antiwar book at http://2mop.webs.com [most of the writers were Libertarians]. I've been trying to help unify Progressives and Libertarians and other peace supporters since then. Now I'm in New Hampshire where there's a lot of political activism by Libertarians. I'm sure they'd love to hear Cindy speak in Manchester, NH. Libertarians cover the political spectrum, but they're basically for peace and against abuse of power. They're very friendly and would love to hear anyone speak out against abuses of power, injustice & atrocities, such as in Iraq etc.
* So would you like to consider speaking in Manchester? It's not far from Boston. People in Boston would like to hear Cindy too, I'm sure. If you'll consider Manchester, I'll start asking around to help find a place to speak and a place to stay there. Okay? I'm sure someone would likely volunteer to provide a ride to or from Boston, if you like.

- Good Day. Lloyd Kinder

    Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox

    Listen Online!

    Cindy will be touring the country for the next several months holding book discussions on Myth America: The 10 Greatest Myths of the Robber Class and the Case for Revolution.

    We have emailed out hundreds of books, and here are some of the comments:

    "The myths are right on!" (Travis from Ft. Collins, Co);

    "Your book reinforced my sanity, I am sharing it with others!" (Ken D.V.); "Cindy gets straight to the heart of a question faster than anyone else I know." David Swanson (www.AfterDowningStreet.org).

    "I loved your book, but my favorite chapter was the one on elections." (Jon Gold, 9-11 Truth Movement).

    Myth America is taking it on the road because we believe that we need to Rally the Robbed Class Revolution and build, or build on, relationships to peacefully throw off the oppressions of the Robber Class and learn how to demand Peace, Justice and Economic Equality and actually get them! We are energized to elevate ourselves from the Robbed Class to the Independent Class...one person, one family, one community at a time!

    We are working on the schedule right now and this is a list of towns Myth America and Cindy are coming to:

    New Mexico: Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Taos (April 18-22; confirmed);

    Eureka Springs, Ar (April 23 confirmed);

    Chicago (May 3 confirmed);

    Ft. Collins, Co (May 5, tentative):

    California tour: San Francisco, May 7th in Cindy for Congress Campaign office from 7-9 (Confirmed); San Diego, Santa Barbara and Monterey (May 9-13, tentative);

    Texas: Dallas and Austin (June 7-13, tentative);

    East Coast: (June 15-?) NYC (TBD); Washington, DC (TBD); Philly (TBD); Boston, (TBD); Tampa, (TBD).

    Northwest: Seattle and Portland (TBD).

    Hopefully, we can squeeze Minneapolis and Cleveland (we've been invited) in there somewhere. Any other suggestions are welcomed! Video or phone conferencing with Cindy are also possible for these discussion groups. Cindy is also very willing to speak at high schools or colleges on alternatives to joining the Military Industrial Complex or do panels on any Myth America subject with other activists.

    Cindy will just be asking for donations to cover airfare (which is super- cheap right now) and is hoping to stay in the homes of fellow Revolutionaries along the way.

    Most of the time, we will be taping our weekly editions of the Soapbox when we are on the road so we can increase the variety of voices from around the nation on our show.

    If you would like to help Cindy organize any part of this tour, please email her at: Cindy@CindySheehansSoapbox.com.

* I replied:
* Seems like July 1, 2 or 3 would probably work. I'll ask around and get back to you asap. Would you like to do any radio interviews shortly before the event? Freetalklive might be a good place to do that and announce your speaking event there.

* Does anyone want to help find a place for Cindy to speak and a place for her to spend the night on July 1, 2, or 3 in or near Manchester? Or would Keene be better? Or somewhere else?

Good luck! I know that Phil Berg, who was Cindy’s fellow candidate for Congress in Nancy Pelosi’s district, did a lot to educate her about the damage that our fiat currency system does to our society and to enable the warfare state. However, she still has a lot of very socialist ideas about forcibly-funded health care and education… she shows some promise, and I am not willing to write her off yet, but you have some work to do. As I already said: good luck!

That's only 4 days after Porcupine Freedom Festival, which runs June 25-28.  If she comes to that on the 26th/27th, there will be 300+ libertarians around that she can talk to and meet.  www.PorcFest.com  See if she can reschedule to be up here the previous weekend.

* I wrote to Cindy earlier today and mentioned Porc Fest, but I haven't received a reply yet.
* I emailed and called a bunch of activists today and at least 2 of them intend to discuss ideas with me by email etc about preparing for Cindy's visit. Anyone else is welcome to discuss too. My email is LKINDR@yahoo.com.
* Manchester is probably the first choice and the others suggested also Keene and Portsmouth, if Cindy has time. They also suggested getting Peace Jam of Milford involved in order to possibly attract students for counter-recruiting.

I like Cindy as a person very much.  That is good enough for me.  Though I may disagree with her philosophically (as I do most people) I sure like her and will show up to hear her.  I think she's one of us.

If she is willing to get educated to the evils of fiat currency, she may just get curious about the whole premise of the system, especially if surrounded by 300+ libertarians.  Cheesy

* Cindy said lately that she'd like to speak a day earlier than she previously thought, i.e. from June 30 to July 2, which will be on Tue to Thur.
* We're trying to arrange for her to speak in Keene, the Manchester area and Portsmouth. George Corrette wants one of his groups to sponsor her in Keene, but, if any other Keeners want to co-sponsor her there, you can contact George or me.
* WMD, Women Making a Difference, seems to want to sponsor Cindy in one of the other cities.
* If anyone else knows of potential sponsors, or a place she can spend the night in one of those 3 places, let me know.

Please please PLEASE do me a favor and tell NH Peace Action when & where Sheehan will be speaking. They can get a lot of people to come -- people for whom it will be extremely beneficial to hang with libertarians.

* Thanks for the suggestion, Denis. I just called them, at your suggestion, but they say they don't have the resources to sponsor Cindy. So they gave me another person's email address to contact.
* Not many resources are really needed. Cindy will speak for free. She just needs to have a place to speak and somewhere free to spend the night.
* She emailed me again yesterday, saying she wants to be here June 30 and July 1, then fly back to California on July 2. So apparently she canceled the idea of going on to Maine from here.
* I'll call Murphy's Taproom in Manchester and see if their extra room will be available.
* Any other help would be appreciated.

FEDS THREATEN Cindy Sheehan
« Reply #14 on: May 02, 2009, 12:45:14 pm »

* Latest message from Cindy at http://cindysheehanssoapbox.blogspot.com/2009/03/myth-america-by-cindy-sheeha-pre-order.html

"These are the times that try (wo)men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine (m)patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but (s)he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."

Thomas Paine

May 2, 2009

Dear Friend,

It is so hard for me to ask for help.

My campaign for Congress against Nancy Pelosi may have been a naïve attempt to buck the fraudulent "two" party system and to get someone from SF8 in the House of Representatives that was actually from and for the people, but it was an honest attempt made with the best of intentions and the purest progressive platform from any of the candidates.

We did so many things right and I achieved ballot access against all of the odds, but the system is stacked against challengers or independent/3rd party candidates. If you don't have a trust fund, a political machine behind you or a wealthy husband, getting a place at our nation's political table is nearly impossible.

Since my son died, contrary to what people on the political right, or center have said, I have not done anything to benefit myself. I have not "used Casey's death" to enrich myself. Any money I received in insurance benefits from his death, or any money I earned from book fees or speaking engagements were almost all invested back into the movement for peace and justice, except for my minimal living expenses.

I find myself now in a financial jam along with many of you. During the campaign I went for about 9 months without a paycheck and my speaking agent dumped me because she was afraid of federal retribution. Campaigning is a full-time job, anyway, so a paying job is just not practical. I scrimped and used all of my savings and ran up my visa to the limit to be able to survive until I was able to be paid by the campaign beginning in August after I achieved ballot and oficial candidate status.

However, unbeknownst to me, I was supposed to stop getting a paycheck from the campaign as soon as the election happened (On November, as if the work ends on that day!) but my campaign committee kept paying me, now according to the FEC (Federal Elections Commission), I owe the campaign almost 10,000.00 or will be faced with civil/criminal penalties if I don't pay that money back.

I don't even have an extra 10.00 to give back to the campaign.

My book tour has been great at helping me pay my minimal personal expenses and I am still working really hard for peace and justice (I am writing from Madison, Wi, today). I have been working about 18 hours per day writing, traveling, speaking, doing clerical tasks, and trying to build the communities that we need to strengthen ourselves to be able to survive and thrive through these Robber Class nightmares

For the rest of the summer, I will be visiting about 24 more cities on my Myth America book tour and that tour is paying for itself from generous donations along the way. A seed was planted here in Madison yesterday to have some kind of mass protest in Dallas on August 6 (Hiroshima day and the first day I went to Crawford in 2005) to gather in front of the Bush's new place and try to "citizen's arrest" George Bush.

I cannot pay back the campaign myself, and I can't afford the fines the FEC will levy against me (am already dealing with a 10,000 fine levied against the campaign this week), nor do I want to go to Federal prison (for this), so I am reluctantly and with humility asking for your help. This nightmare has been personal, but the struggle is communal. Ironically, if I am able to pay the campaign back for my salary, which the FEC deems, "Personal use," I will be able to pay the 10,000 fine levied against the campaign.

I have given so much to this country, my son, my health, my money, my relationships, and I don't ask for much back.

Notwithstanding the exclusivity of the 18th Century language of the above quote from Thomas Paine, I am not a "Sunshine Patriot" and I am committed to doing everything in my capacity to fight for and with my fellow humans in this struggle to attain peace, justice, economic equality, environmental sustainability, and security for all, not just the Robber Class.

IF YOU MEAN TO GIVE ME A GIFT TO HELP ME CLEAR UP MY DEBT TO MY CAMPAIGN, PLEASE DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO: CINDY SHEEHAN FOR CONGRESS.

[INSTEAD] MY PERSONAL PAYPAL IS:

CINDY@CINDYSHEEHANSSOAPBOX.COM AND MY ADDRESS TO SEND A CHECK

(MADE OUT TO CINDY SHEEHAN) IS

55 CHUMASERO DR APT 5D, SF, CA 94132.

THEN, I WILL MAKE THE PAYMENTS TO MY CAMPAIGN.

THANKS!

CINDY
