Camp Casey in Atlanta - from Atlanta Dems
As posted at our atlantademocrats.org website yesterday, Cindy will be coming to Atlanta this weekend as part of a national tour. To make sure everyone knows about it, I'm also blasting out e-notices. She will do three appearances, but the main event is Sat., 9/10. Details:
** CINDY SHEEHAN IN ATLANTA SATURDAY, SEPT. 10, 7 â 9 PM VICTORY CHURCH 1170 N. Hairston Rd., Stone Mountain GA 30083 Easy to reach: 15 minutes east of downtown Decatur East 78 (Stone Mt.

Camp Casey Comes to Atlanta Program: Members of Military Families Speak Out, Gold Star Families for Peace, and Veterans for Peace will share the truth about Iraq and inspire us to take action:
More than ever, we say Bring the Troops Home Now! Money for Hurricane Relief, Not War and Occupation!
** Or join fellow Atlantans also on Friday--Cindy would appreciate a good crowd to show support:
Welcome Camp Casey Press Conference Friday, Sept. 9, 10 am Atlanta City Hall Atrium
May have a memorial procession after the press conference before joining the Georgia Peace Coalition Friday Colony Square Rally noon to one.
** Sunday, Sept. 10, 10-11 am Camp Casey Program UUCA (Unitarian Congregation) 1911 Cliff Valley Way, Atlanta 30329 www.uuca.org
The âBring Them Home Now Tourâ comes to Atlanta just as the true cost of the Iraq War is made devastatingly clear with the death and destruction from Hurricane Katrina. Millions needed for flood control financed the invasion and occupation. Thousands of National Guard troops who could have saved lives on the Gulf Coast were in Iraq.
Local organizers include the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition/Atlanta, Atlanta International Action Center, Georgia Coalition for the Peopleâs Agenda, Operation LEAD, Gold Star Families for Peace, Military Families Speak Out, Veterans for Peace Chapter 125, and Atlanta WAND.
