Richard Gage, AIA, Cindy Sheehan & Project Censored’s Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff in San Francisco at the PossibL Conference
Architect Richard Gage to Speak at San Francisco Conference this Saturday — Join Us at “The World’s Fair of Creative Ideas”
Come join us this weekend in San Francisco as Richard Gage, AIA, lectures to hundreds of creative thinkers and innovators – most of whom will be new to the World Trade Center evidence – at the “PossibL” Conference being held on Pier 35.
Created by visionary producer Steven Jay, the “PossibL” Conference brings together dozens of experts in the fields of arts and entertainment, media, education, civil rights, non-violence, health, and social entrepreneurship. Along with Gage, speakers include renowned anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan and Project Censored’s Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff. In addition, there will be hundreds of tables and booths for conference-goers to peruse.
Cindy Lee Miller Sheehan was born on July 10, 1957. She married Patrick Sheehan and the couple had four children--Casey, Carly, Andy, and Janey. Casey was the oldest. The whole family was active in the church; Cindy was once a Youth Minister. They were a tightly knit family that, in Cindy´s words, “did everything together.”
Cindy’s world changed forever when, on an April 4, 2004 mission in Sadr City, Iraq, Army Specialist Casey Sheehan was killed. Cindy and other military families met with President George W. Bush in June of 2004. By October, Cindy´s grief had led her to action. She wrote, “I was ashamed that I hadn’t tried to stop the war before Casey died…Well, I now felt that if I couldn’t make a difference, I would at least try.”
Sheehan became one of the strongest, most personal and persistent voices in the movement against the war in Iraq. Her quest to end the war, bring soldiers home, and hold politicians accountable for the decisions that sent the troops to Iraq in the first place, has been unwavering.

Many thanks to Peace Fresno for allowing me the opportunity to speak.
Your very own co-founder of 9/11Blogger has finally written a book! '9/11 Truther' details Jon's experiences in the 9/11 truth movement and why it is still vitally important to the welfare of the world that the event be fully investigated for the purposes of justice, accountability, and peace.
Jon is a personal friend of mine whose work I've followed for years. I've often played the role of sounding board for Jon, a man whose early life experiences mirror many of my own.
He is a working class gentleman who has dedicated his life to spreading the message of the Jersey Girls, to doing everything in his power to help the forgotten, neglected, and ailing 9/11 First Responders, and to spreading the ideas and beliefs of many great American icons such as Martin Luther King, Jr and Cindy Sheehan.
Speaking of Cindy Sheehan, she was kind enough to author the foreword to Jons' book. Cindy is an elegant wordsmith. She is a woman that has earned my utmost respect for being consistent, outspoken, and incendiary. She does not disappoint here.
Cindy Sheehan has turned her grief into an anti-war crusade, even questioning the death of Osama bin Laden. From HLN's Dr. DREW Show Thurs. 5/5/11:
This is a special Media Roots TV interview conducted by Abby Martin with Cindy Sheehan, mother who has made the ultimate sacrifice and fearless anti-war activist. She relays her powerfully lucid point of view in a candid interview at her home on February 6th, 2011.

Peace activist Cindy Sheehan has given support to the cause of 9/11 truth many times over the past few years but on the eve of the ninth anniversary, she made her position clearer than ever before. To an enthusiastic packed house at All Souls Church in New York City, Sheehan declared "I am a 9/11 truther. I do think it was an inside job."
Sheehan lost her son Casey in the Iraq invasion and has since dedicated her life to ending war and injustice. She is most widely known for setting up camp on the edge of George W. Bush's Texas property in 2005, demanding that the president answer one single question from a mother whose son died in the war.
Since that time, Sheehan has continued her activism. She is a fierce critic of the Obama administration's continued occupations and drone attacks, and recently founded Peace of the Action to further her anti-war activities.
On Friday, in the crowded All Souls Church on the upper East Side of Manhattan, Sheehan spoke of many injustices related to the war, both at home and abroad. She spoke of being tear gassed and shot at with rubber bullets while protesting. She spoke of the recently reported "Kill Squad" in Afghanistan, where members of the US military collected the fingers of slaughtered civilians for souvenirs. "That's not something new," Sheehan said.
She urged the crowd to consider the lives of the Iraqi, Afghan and Pakistani people and said, "We're the occupiers - it's up to us to do something about it".
When the topic turned to 9/11, Sheehan stated "I am a 9/11 truther." She paused while the appreciative crowd cheered loudly and then said, "I do think it was an inside job. We just don't know - I don't know - how far inside it went. But, you know, I'm sure Dick Cheney had something to do with it."
While not making it her main issue, Sheehan has spoken freely regarding her opinions on 9/11 truth over the past few years. She has offered her support to the 9/11 truth movement in various interviews and participated in conferences. Sheehan also serves as an adviser to the recently launched 9/11 Truth News (911truthnews.com).
Citing the 30,000 mostly young people who die each day from starvation, Sheehan left the crowd with this thought: "Every day, ten 9/11s occur around the world. It's time to start acting locally, but thinking globally."
Report by Cosmos
On Saturday March 20th, a huge anti-war rally and march was held at Lafayette Park in Washington D.C. It was sponsored by A.N.S.W.E.R. Speakers included Cindy Sheehan, Ann Wright, Ralph Nader, Matthis Chiroux, Mike Ferner, and many others.
The march ended in front of the White House. Some of the protesters placed faux coffins representing different countries we have harmed during these illegal wars against the fence in front of the White House. The Park Police set up a perimeter around these coffins using the “POLICE DO NOT CROSS” tape. My guess would be it was around 50ft x 50ft on the front sidewalk of the White House. People like Matthis Chiroux laid down in front of the coffins to protest. If you entered this zone, you were arrested. I refer to it as an arbitrary “arrest zone.”
Cindy Sheehan, myself, and others walked through the crowd until we reached the barrier closest to those laying down on the sidewalk. As you can see in this video, the barrier failed, and Cindy Sheehan walked across. As soon as she entered the “arrest zone,” the Park Police immediately grabbed her, and handcuffed her. They were literally manhandling her.
Whose Streets? (Our Streets between 1pm and 4pm With a Permit) by Cindy Sheehan
On the 7th commemoration of the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq, there was a rally and march in DC sponsored by the A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition that was attended by about eight thousand people.
For quite awhile, I have been having problems with marches on Saturday, anyway. It seems like we march past empty buildings and shake our fists at them and promise that if those empty buildings don’t change their ways, we will be back next year to do the same thing. The arrests are symbolic and don’t shut down anything, except in the case of large arrests, where the police stations are busy for a few hours.
Corrected, revised and updated March 27, 2010
21 mars 2010 — Cindy Sheehan was arrested at the White House in an anti-war rally, where thousands of anti-war protesters gathered in Washington DC on March 20, 2010, calling for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, and an end to U.S. wars across the globe.
On Monday morning, we are setting up Camp OUT NOW on the lawn of the Washington Memorial. I have chosen to partake in this because for 9 years we have tried to use the "system" to bring truth and accountability for the 9/11 attacks, and the "system" does not work.
I don't know if you've noticed or not, but 9/11 is not being allowed in the courts. So I don't know what option is left. Part of 9/11 Truth is being anti-war. That's part of the reason we do what we do... or at least I've always thought it to be the case. That we are trying to end the "9/11 wars" by exposing the truth. I can't think of a better place for 9/11 Truth to be than an event designed to end the wars. Knowledge is, after all, power. So... I will be using my knowledge of 9/11 to help end these hideous and illegal wars. We have too much blood on our hands to do nothing.
I hope that you will tell your friends and family to support what it is we are trying to do. 9/11 Truth will be represented at Camp OUT NOW. Cindy has already told me I will be speaking. Please come if you can, but more importantly, don't let people forget we are out there. Please.
