SHE’S BACK : Peace Mom Cindy Sheehan (center) leads a July 26 march through Midtown calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice-President Cheney.
Several days later she left for refugee camps in Syria and Jordan bringing relief supplies to Iraqi victims of the war. Sheehan, who ended her brief “retirement” from the antiwar movement at the beginning of July, announced July 23 that she would run as an independent candidate for Congress next year against Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) due to Pelosi’s refusal to support bringing articles of impeachment against Bush and Cheney.
