Peace and Freedom Party update: Chair Arrested; Cindy Sheehan joins

Updates posted at peaceandfreedom.org:

Peace and Freedom Party State Chair Arrested

“Someone needed to stand with the disability rights community and I did,” said C. T. Weber, Peace and Freedom Party State Chair and nominee for Lieutenant Governor. Weber was arrested at a rally on Disability Rights Day at the state capitol on Wednesday, August 18. The disability community was protesting the crippling cuts to social services in the state budget.

Twenty-two demonstrators, eight of them in wheel chairs, were arrested after they sat down and blocked traffic. However, the police vans had no ramps to take those in wheel chairs away. C.T. Weber received a head wound when a channel 3 TV camera hit him. All but one of those arrested were issued citations and released.

This is not the first time that Weber has been arrested for civil disobedience. Recently he was arrested in Congress member Doris Matsui’s district office for protesting her votes for funding the occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Has she camped out anyplace near President Obama like she used to do with President Bush? I don’t see much difference between them on war policies. I wonder if she does.

  2. Catholic Trotskyist

    This is the kind of thing the PFP should be doing; not spoiling elections for the Democratic Party. The PFP should be the protest/direct action arm of the Catholic Trotskyist Party.

    Does anyone know what are the differences between the Peace and Freedom Party and the Green Party? Why are there 2 far-left parties in California? That’s a waste of resources.

    God Bless Cindy Sheehan.

    new Federalist, Cindy Sheehan has publically castigated and pointed out obama’s and the Dimbocrats direct complicity in war crimes.

    It is why many in the- ahem cough- “peace movement” distanced themselves from her.

    When I asked her to endorse me in our campaign in Minnesota her only question was “Are you running as a Dem or Rethug.” When i said no, she immediately endorsed me.

    She had already known my platform.

  6. Catholic Trotskyist

    Some of those articles sound interesting Paulie. Especially the alliance of the Anti-War and Tea Party movements; sounds similar to Catholic Trotskyism.
    But Kavlan’s Go-Nowhere campaign against the great Muslim Trotskyist Keith Ellison is still a failure waiting to happen.

  7. Concerned Reader

    Just why does Catholic Trotskyist seem to hate Michael Kavlan so much? It seems like on every thread where Kavlam comments, CT insults him relentlessly.

    You are singing my song brother. I was going to bring up the Ron Paul, Matt Gonzalez anti-war rally but I seen you got it covered already.

    For similar thoughts, search Michael Cavlan on you tube and watch the End The Fed rally in Minneapolis where I spoke on this very point as well. One of the other speakers was… Rand Paul.

    It is ironic that the End the Fed folks “allow me to speak” when the “Minneapolis Peace” community will not at their rallies.

    Watch the video and you will understand why. Or indeed the you tube video of myself and another Campaign for Liberty guy who got “talked to” for DARING to call Obama aa war criminal. With our own megaphone since, you guessed it we were not “allowed” to speak at their rally.

    Uh, can somebody remind this nutcase that her 15 minutes are up? Casey has been spinning long enough. She needs to stop disgracing his memory, and stop fighting her irrelevance.

    Peace on Earth.
