From Camp Casey To Washington DC
Bring Them Home Now Tour
On August 31st, the last day of the encampment, the Bring Them Home Now Tour launched three buses from Crawford, Texas, each carrying military and Gold Star families, veterans of the Iraq War and veterans of previous wars. The three buses are currently travelling to 51 cities in 28 states, converging in Washington, DC on September 21, for the United for Peace and Justice Mobilization..
"When people ask why did Cindy spark this movement, it’s simple: there’s a pool of grief about the loss of our soldiers and the direction of this country. Cindy’s tears fell into this pool and it spilled over into a torrent – and that torrent is coming for Washington DC, so George Bush, members of Congress, you better get out of the way." -Tammara Rosenleaf
Meet With the Mothers Campaign
Camp Casey expands to include not just the front door to Bush’s vacation home in Crawford Texas, but to the front doors of members of Congress and the Senate. Cindy sent a letter to all the members of Congress holding them responsible for taking us into war and therefore ending this war. We need you to create a Camp Casey outside the offices of those who are not agreeing to a meeting.
What you can do to help
Support Cindy by making a contribution.
Your financial support is needed to make sure that Cindy and other military families and veterans can continue their vigil outside the Presidents, ranch. Please contribute to help cover the costs of assisting others with their travel and their stay in Crawford.
Attend a vigil or Camp Casey in your community.
Cindy's efforts to ask President Bush the reason why her son died in Iraq have inspired communities around the country to demand that our troops be brought home now. Last Wednesday night over 100,000 people attended1600 vigils in communities across the nation. You can join this movement by attending a vigil or Camp Casey in your community. Let us know.
Come to Washington, DC September 24-26
In September, people from across the nation will gather in Washington to tell Bush and Congress that it is time to bring the troops home. Join Cindy in Washington for three historic days of action against the war: a major march, rally, and festival on Saturday, September 24; an interfaith religious service and day of grassroots trainings on Sunday, September 25; and a large-scale grassroots lobbying day and nonviolent civil disobedience on Monday, September 26.
