Anti-War Activist Cindy Sheehan Supports Courageous Rebellion in Ferguson

August 20, 2014 | Revolution Newspaper |


Noted anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son, a U.S. solider, was killed in Iraq in 2004, sent this message that was read at August 18 protests in the San Francisco Bay Area supporting the struggle in Ferguson for justice for Michael Brown.


Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for standing and rallying in support of Michael Brown and his family and all victims of out of control police brutality. I wish I could be there with you, but my heart is there and my heart is with Michael Brown and his family at this very tragic and unnecessary time.

I wanted to also express my solidarity with the people who are courageously rebelling in Ferguson against the police state. With the growing collaboration of the militarization of law enforcement with government and media, it is important that we the people provide the lacking checks and balances to the police state.

As in Ferguson, all over the world we denounce and protest police state, imperial violence.

With revolutionary regards,
Cindy Sheehan
