Cindy Sheehan to speak at Socialism 2010
Socialism 2010 - a weekend of discussion and debate
Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 November
Cindy came to prominence in 2005 when she set up a protest camp outside president Bush's ranch. She simply wanted to ask Bush why he sent her son to die in Iraq.
In 2008 she ran for Congress as an Independent against the top Democrat Nancy Pelosi, winning an impressive 16% of the vote, beating the Republican, and coming in second place.
In recent months Cindy has clearly stated that capitalism is the root cause of the world's problems and that democratic socialism is the alternative.
Cindy will be speaking at the Socialism 2010 rally, joined by the Socialist Party's general secretary, Peter Taaffe, and Andros Payiatsos of Xekinima (CWI Greece).
