Cindy Sheehan

Finally saw her live - was pretty cool. She's a good speaker - eminently believable. Funny, too.

Event listing here, though I'm not sure how long it'll stay up. Put on by the Berkeley Stop the War Coalition, but their site is down.

Saw Peter Camejo speak. He was really good, actually.

And saw Barbara Becnel - she was good. Told us about the 'Campaign to Save Stan Tookie Williams'. I think Barbara is Tookie's counsel and friend and spokesperson - something like that.

Lastly, saw Todd Chretien of International Socialist Organization. Think he was pretty good. He may have also been the guy who led the chant at the end of the meeting/lecture/whatever, in support of Tookie. I forget how it went - but it was tight!
