Just found out today (August 4, 2012) that Roseanne Barr and I were given the confidence and nomination of the Peace and Freedom Party of California at the nominating convention. Even though Roseanne and I have been a member of the party for almost four years, now, the nomination wasn’t in the bag—there were some [...]
Cindy Sheehan First and foremost, we mourn the deaths of the 20 humanitarian aid workers that were spinelessly slaughtered by the terrorist state of Israel. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the families in this terrible time of senseless loss. We also wish a speedy and complete recovery to the up to 80 people [...]
Cindy Sheehan Since November of 2006 when the Democrats regained majorities in both Houses of Congress, I began my gradual awakening to the fact that the “Two”-Party Robber Class political system is a fraud.
Standing on a working class and antiwar platform, Cindy Sheehan ran against Nancy Pelosi in the last elections. She managed to win 17 percent of the vote, despite the media’s relentless attempts to campaign for Pelosi. We in Workers Action believe the following article is an excellent example of her class approach to politics.
Cindy Sheehan Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies—or else? The chain reaction of evil—hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars—must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The following statement represents a significant move to the left by Cindy Sheehan who now calls for the overthrow of the “Robber class,” in other words, the rich who rule society and their government agents. It reflects what is becoming obvious to a growing number of people, namely that the government has no real intention of bailing out working people but only rich bankers and brokers, and that working people will need to organize themselves in order to defend their own interests. This statement is a step in that direction.
Cindy Sheehan Peace is not an absence of war: it’s an absence of preparing for war or an absence of using violence or threats of violence to solve problems.
Cindy Sheehan An article with the above title appeared in the S.F. Chronicle two days after election day. The premise for this article was because I “only” received 17% of the vote and because Prop V. (which restored the predatory and possibly illegal JROTC) passed, now Fox News could not run any stories about “wacky” [...]
We have moved right through November 4th because this is a movement for peace and against corporate control of our political system. Movements can’t stop, we must keep moving.
The way we do elections in this country must be reformed because clearly the campaigns with the most money won all over the country.
