Candlelight Vigils Illuminate Coast

We know how to make war. How can we make peace? Cindy Sheehan's vigil in Crawford, Texas, has inspired people across the country to show support for the woman standing up to the Bush Administration.

Her vigil is spreading across the country to the Central Coast.

In San Luis Obispo, Wednesday (8/17), 7:30 pm, you can take take part in a candlelight vigil at Mission Plaza. One request: bring a candle.

In Lompoc, Wednesday, 7:30pm, at Centennial Park at H and Cypress Streets. BYOC!
Mrs. Sheehan has held vigil outside the president's ranch for over a week now, yet President Bush has refused to meet with Cindy.

Saturday, Bush said that there are lots of people who have "something to say to the president" and "it's also important for me to go on with my life."

But Cindy says that she won't leave until President Bush meets with her to discuss the war, even if it means spending all of August there.

The CodePink SLO women and other Central Coast peace activists will be helping during the San Luis Obispo vigil; it's a call to action also supported by, Democracy For America, and True Majority.
