Challenging Corporate America's Wars at Home and Abroad
 
>From Cairo to Wisconsin working people are rising up against injustice. 
Massive strikes and demonstrations rocked Europe last year. Popular 
uprisings have challenged dictatorships and neo-liberalism across North 
Africa and the Middle East. Millions here see the bloody occupations of 
Afghanistan and Iraq as part of an overall offensive against our lives
and 
living conditions. Workers and youth in Wisconsin and across the country

have begun to fight back against budget cuts and attacks from both the 
Republicans and Democrats. Come to this important discussion about 
how we can organize to challenge the two corporate parties and build a 
real political alternative in the fight for our future as working people
and 
youth.

Following her son's death in Iraq, Sheehan gained national attention in 
2005 as thousands joined her protest outside President Bush's vacation 
ranch in Texas. Now among the nation's foremost antiwar voices, Sheehan 
has written books and spoken extensively to gatherings of thousands.
After 
the Democrats won control of Congress in 2006, Sheehan denounced the 
Democrats and their decision to continue Bush's wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan. 
In 2008 she challenged then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in the 
congressional election receiving an impressive 17% of the vote as an 
Independent candidate. Following speaking tours in Venezuela and Europe,

Sheehan has increasingly spoken out against capitalism and in support of

democratic Socialism.
