Protests at White House Aim to Prevent War on Iran

Protests at White House Aim to Prevent War on Iran, End War on Iraq, and Reverse Stolen Elections (Should There Be Any)


For Immediate Release November 3, 2006

Cindy Sheehan has called for a protest at the White House from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, from November 6-9. The protest is in opposition to the war in Iraq and the possible war in Iran, but will develop into a protest of stolen elections should evidence of election fraud emerge.

On the evening of November 7, citizens will turn Lafayette Square Park, in front of the White House into a Blue Revolution, one of many events around the country. Crowds dressed in blue will be holding vigils outside election offices to demand an accurate counting of votes in at least these locations: AZ-Maricopa, AZ-Yavapai, CA-Kern, CA-Orange, CA-Santa Barbara, CA-San Luis Obispo, CO-Adams, DC-District of Columbia, IN-La Porte, IN-Lake, IN-Porter, MD-Baltimore, MD-Howard, MN-Waseca, MO-St. Louis, OR-Washington, NY-Onondaga, TX-Lamar, WA-Clark, WA-King.

At 11:00 a.m. on November 8, Sheehan will lead the delivery to the White House of huge stacks of signatures and comments from the 75,000 Americans who have signed a petition opposing an attack on Iran. Sheehan and others are prepared to risk arrest if the White House will not accept the petition.
