Speaking Truth To Empire: Yemen Genocide with Social Activist Cindy Sheehan

Host Dan Yaseen welcomes Cindy Lee Miller Sheehan.

Cindy is is an American anti-war activist, whose son, U.S. Army Specialist Casey Sheehan, was killed by enemy action during the Iraq War. She attracted national and international media attention in August 2005 for her extended antiwar protest at a makeshift camp outside President George W. Bush‘s Texas ranch—a stand that drew both passionate support and criticism.

Sheehan ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2008. She was a vocal critic of President Barack Obama‘s foreign policy. Her memoir, Peace Mom: A Mother’s Journey Through Heartache to Activism, was published in 2006.

Sheehan was the 2012 vice-presidential nominee of the Peace and Freedom Party, and received 1.2% of the statewide vote in the 2014 California gubernatorial election.

  1. Salam and thank you Cindy… your courage is much appreciated by the tens of milions of Arab citizens who remain silent not speaking out against this criminal war, out of fear of imprisonment. The Arab streets are silent out of fear, not out of indifference. We thank you for your courage.

  2. Cindy Lee Miller Sheehan, your name will live in history as a true blue American. I’m hoping at least a stamp or maybe a coin in your honor. Keep up the good fight sister.
