Episode 10 - Cindy Sheehan

Activist, author and all around pain in the ass for the status quo, Cindy Sheehan had her world turned upside down when she learned that her son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004. Since then, Cindy has become one of the strongest, most personal and persistent voices in the movement against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact, I believe she has done more to reinvigorate and galvanize the anti war movement than any other single individual in the last 10 years. She camped for months in front of the Bush family compound in Crawford, Texas and was joined by hundreds of supporters in what can rightly be seen as the prototype for the Occupy movement. 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 unrelenting. Here we discuss the death of her son, her life as an activist and what it's like to be slandered and bullied by the likes of Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly.
