Cindy Sheehan plans march on President Bush's new Dallas home
Posted by Brandon Long | Thursday, 04 June 2009
Cindy Sheehan, who drew national attention for camping outside former President George W. Bush's ranch in protest of the Iraq War, is following him to Dallas. Sheehan will lead a demonstration Monday protesting "crimes against humanity."
"We can't allow George Bush's crimes to be forgotten just because he is not in office anymore," she said in an e-mail.
While most people in Preston Hollow have gone out of their way to welcome the former president and first lady home, they're not exactly rolling out the welcome mat for Sheehan.
"Go away," resident Kathie Taub said. "Go back! Leave us alone!"
Taub said Sheehan had already protested and should "now leave everybody alone."
"She has already made her opinion known, and it is getting old," Michael Taub said. "She needs to go back to wherever she came from."
Neighbor Victor Toledo echoed the sentiment.
"There's a lot of decent people that call this home, and I'd rather not see that," he said.
The march begins at Preston Road and Royal Lane at 4:30 p.m. and ends on Daria Drive, outside the secure entrance to Bush's Preston Hollow neighborhood. It is not scheduled to cross any major intersections.
It was not clear if Bush or his wife will be at home this weekend, according to the Dallas Morning News.
