Ambassador Cindy Postpones EU Speech Due to Injuries
Ambassador Cindy Sheehan, the anti-American and anti-War protest mother, says she will have to postpone her speech to the European Union Parliament planned for Tuesday.
Mother Sheehan says she suffered serious injuries during her arrest on Monday in New York:
“I could not go to Germany,” Sheehan wrote. “My doctor forbade it. I ended up having a slight concussion and a possible torn rotator cuff injury. I am recuperating and won’t make Europe this week.”
She was invited to speak to the EU Parliament to warn them about the new fascists across the pond. It was nice of our allies to invite her. It was probably to balance all of the pro-US press reports that are continually published in Old Europe.
Sheehan’s scheduled trip to Europe originated because she was invited to address the European Union Parliament in Strasbourg, France, next Tuesday. Organizers in Germany had planned for Sheehan and protesters to march Saturday at 2:30 p.m. from a church in Landstuhl to a parking lot outside of Ramstein Air Base’s west gate. After the march, Sheehan was to be present at a “Camp Casey” that was erected in the parking lot to memorialize those killed as a result of the Iraq war. Camp Casey is named after Sheehan’s son, Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, who was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004.
That Cindy is a real trooper, though.
She just smiles right through that concussion and dislocated shoulder.
What a gal!
Despite the concussion and dislocated shoulder Cindy was back on the protest trail on Wednesday March 8, 2006, in Washington DC.
