Iraq Veterans Against the War is participating in the Camp Casey protest organized by Cindy Sheehan outside the George Bush’s Crawford Texas rattlesnake ranch. They have been shuttling members in and out since the protest started, and will continue to do so until Camp Casey is folded up and the Bring Them Home Now Crawford to DC Bus Tour begins on September 1.
The cost of transporting, housing, and feeding these folks — who are mostly underemployed and in school — has drained the coffers of IVAW down to an alarming level. IVAW feels that its support of the Camp Casey protest is absolutely essential, so they are not complaining about the necessary expenditures. They just need help putting their financial house back in order so they can participate in the Bus Tour that will culminate on September 24th in Washington DC, an d continue after that in their recruitment of more Iraq veterans and supporting public education and counter-recruitment activities.
