The week in review (August 14-19)

Cindy Sheehan's vigil continued this week, gaining more national media coverage,commentaries, and sparking candlelight vigils in solidarity with her protest around the country. Truly an inspring week for activists! At week's end, Cindy had to leave the peace camp, due to her mother's illness, but "Whatever happens, Cindy Sheehan will not be moved", as the protestors vow to continue the vigil. Already, signs that the 'winds of change are blowin', as 'US lowers sights on Iraq' as reported in the pro-war Washington Post. and, as pointed out by Ira Chermus " There have been quite a number of Cindy Sheehan's before -- grief-stricken parents who lost children in Iraq and spoke out against the war. They were all ignored by the mainstream press, because the elite were all still determined to stick it out in Iraq till the bitter end. Cindy Sheehan just happened to be in the right place at the right time -- the time that a debate has broken out within the elite about whether or not to cut bait in Iraq." Ah, the power of an "Army of one" .....

In other news of interest to activists, a noisy protest against the smoking ban in Madison restaurants, brave school children face disciplinary action for refusing to recite the socialist inspired "Pledge of Alegiance", a movement to keep family contact information off the list that public schools must make available to military recruiters, a push in Massachusetts to build a new low-power community radio station for the area (Radio Free America), how to 'shun the REAL ID enablers', the ACLU starts counting the security cameras in Manhattan ( Security cameras multiply in Manhattan), in Singapore: Police send in riot squad to deal with 4 protesters, and a new installment in Joe Blow's The Invisible Pirate - Big Brother on Steroids. And, for those of us on the far side of the big 5 0, don't miss Claire Wolfe's 'Fat unfit and fifty: A different bug-out scenario'.

In other good news, the RRND news feed SHOULD be up and running again this week ...meanwhile, keep checking here for daily updates.
When the RRND feed is fixed and we can move back over to the Liberty Action News site, I'll post an announcement on the blog.

Til next week

For freedom!
