Cindy Sheehan sells Camp Casey to another war activist


Bree Walker, whom I have had the chance to meet and talk to when she was a dj in San Diego has purchased Camp Casey. She fully intends to leave the property open to activists and protesters.

You go girl!!!!!!!

From an article about the sale on the Houston Chron site:

CRAWFORD — President Bush’s newest part-time Texas neighbor is a glamorous California radio talk-show host who’s smart, sassy — and no fan of the nation’s top officeholder.

Anti-war activist Bree Walker became the new owner this week of Camp Casey, the five-acre patch of land near Bush’s ranch that has become a gathering place for peace activists the world over.

Walker, 54, who once worked as a news anchor in New York and San Diego, knows full well she overpaid for the roadside property she purchased from Cindy Sheehan, the even better-known California activist mom. But touring the muddy land for the first time Friday, Walker showed no sign of buyer’s remorse.

“It’s hallowed ground,” Walker said, referring to the tiny white crosses near the entrance that are a memorial to fallen U.S. service members and to Camp Casey’s role in building opposition to the war in Iraq.

So how did a woman who doesn’t like to travel end up forking over $87,000 for a patch of land bereft of a single building 1,150 miles from her San Diego-area home?

She heard Sheehan, who announced in May she was retiring from the movement, was putting it up for sale. Walker said she got “literally sick to my stomach” at the thought that it might fall into the hands of Bush supporters.

About Dusty, hells most vocal bitch

  1. And Cindy confirmed to me over the phone tonight that if Pelosi doesn’t act against Bush before July 23, that Cindy is going to challenge Pelosi for her Congressional seat next year.

  2. I wish her well. Personally, I see her candidacy as a Nader-like role..she will draw progressives that are tired of the Democrats and their sandbagging ways. If I could vote in that district, I would think about it after seeing how she stands on other issues. A single issue candidate seldom fairs well.

  3. She did write a good bit for Truthout- and she is knowledgeable of many issues…it could make things interesting- and I am still pissed that Pelosi took Impeachment off the table like it was a passe lunch item…WHAT the?????Thanks for posting on Camp Casey- so good it is in good hands…not Buscho hands…

  4. Its great that Bree bought it. She is a wonderful women that has a huge birthdefect..I forget the name..but it caused all her fingers to be formed into one large claw on each hand. She is intelligent and speaks her mind. Plus she will keep nipping at BushCo’s heels until his dumbass leaves office 🙂

  5. i hope < HREF="http://www.thenewsroom.com/details/477853/US?c_id=wom-bc-bg" REL="nofollow">Sheehan’s candidacy<> will wake up Democrats..i mean whatever happened to pulling out of Iraq and talks about impeachment..aha..such chickensbhumikaUS news desk,the newsroom

  6. Bhumika, I hope it wakes up the 75% of the Dems that pander to us yet give us nothing in return too. Its not that their chickens..it’s that they do not care.

  7. In Pelosi’s district, I don’t thing a Republican could run even a three way race against Sheehan and Pelosi.

  8. Tom, in Pelosi’s district, she is actually the MOST moderate of those running for the seat.Lots of folks dont think about that.

  9. Great put up, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector do not notice this. You should proceed your writing. I’m sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!|What’s Taking place i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this I have discovered It positively useful and it has aided me out loads. I’m hoping to contribute & aid other customers like its helped me. Great job.
