Cindy Sheehan Announces Withdrawal From Campaign – Statement


For personal and health reasons, I regret that I have to pull out of active participation in the Barr/Sheehan 2012 campaign.

I strongly believe in the Platform as written, and the mission statement of the Peace and Freedom Party, and hope to continue my activism when my health improves.

As to the personal reasons, Candidate Barr and I have irreconcilable differences on how best to serve the Peace and Freedom Party.

I believe between my health issues and the disparity of our Political approach; both the Campaign, Ms Barr and the Party would be better served by my resignation.

I wish nothing but good things for the Party and campaign.

Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan is an American anti-war activist whose son, Specialist Casey Sheehan, was killed during his service in the Iraq War by the Mehdi Army on April 4, 2004. She attracted national and international media attention in August 2005 for her extended anti-war protest at a makeshift camp outside President George W. Bush's Texas ranch — a stand which drew both passionate support and angry criticism. More of her writings can be found at Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox: Writing from the Emprire.
