Actualité - Cindy Sheehan Slams US Government

Washington, Jul 7 (Prensa Latina) US pacifist Cindy Sheehan defends her decision to sell the ranch where she put up her tribune against George W. Bush s presidency after her son Casey was killed in Iraq.

Sheehan said she did what was right by putting aside her political activism, but again stood up against Bush for having commuted the sentence passed against former adviser of the Vice Presidency, Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

This weekend, Sheehan will sell some of the assets of the Crawford estate, near Bush s ranch, she will meet with friends of her struggle and celebrate her 50th birthday, before handing the ranch to its new owner, says the Los Angeles Times.

The news seems a definite goodbye, but in the digital website, the activist for peace again slams the current White House occupant and makes a list of some of his most recent gaffs.

I can t sit quietly and match how a president sinks our country in the dark swamp of fascism and violence, devastating the rest of the world, wrote Sheehan, icon of the anti-war movement in the United States since 2004.

I stayed quiet for the past five weeks while more soldiers were killed in Iraq, the domestic opposition to war increased and Democrat Senator Barack Obama informed there is no way of preventing Bush from continuing in power, she adds.

However, Sheehan says that Bush left a door open after indulting Libby for committing perjury in a federal investigation. She ran out of patience and announced a new march on Washington.

That is why she will participate together with Reverend and friend Lennox Yerdwood in a walk due to start on July 12 at the tomb of Martin Luther King in Georgia and will end in the country s capital, in order to demand Bush be impeached.
