Marianne Barisonek interviews peace activist and former political candidate Cindy Sheehan.

Cindy Sheehan founded Gold Star Families for Peace, which is a member organization of the United for Peace and Justice anti-war coalition. Sheehan first captured media headlines in August 2005 when she and a group of her supporters camped out in front of President George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, demanding that Bush meet with her to discuss the death of her son Casey, a U.S. Army soldier who in April 2004 had been killed in combat in the Iraq War. Sheehan dubbed the location of her protest “Camp Casey,” in honor of her son.
