The Anti-War Movement
In a situation where many people would withdraw into privacy, Cindy Sheehan grieved for her son very publicly. After his death in Iraq, she became one of the most well-known faces of the movement against the war. Later, she made headlines again by stepping away from the movement. Now, 6 years later, her activism continues. We’ll speak with her and historians this Wednesday about the effectiveness of anti-war protests, and Sheehan’s personal experiences in activism.
