    “They can kill somebody’s body, but they can’t kill love.” – Cindy Sheehan, April 13th at Indianapolis.

    Watch Cindy Sheehan at Traprock Peace TV (CounterPunch “website of the day”):

    In this powerful and moving video (28:38 minutes), Cindy Sheehan calls for nonviolent revolution, encourages activists and shares her emotions about this war’s senseless killings of Iraqis and US soldiers. This is a question and answer session that she gave after her talk at the 3rd Annual Midwest Peace and Justice Summit held at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, on April 13, 2007.

    “They want us to live in fear….It’s time that we’re willing to sacrifice and put our bodies on the line for peace and justice.”

    Sponsoring organizations were IUPUI Students Advocates for Global Equality, Plowshares Consortium of Peace Studies, Indiana Peace and Justice Network, IUPUI Center for Service and Learning, Indianapolis Peace and Justice Center, and IUPUI Office of Campus and Community Life. Organizations throughout the Midwest participated.

    At Traprock Peace TV, see also videos of Cindy Sheehan’s main talk at IUPUI (preceding the Q and A session above) and her speaking at Purdue on April 12 (Q and A, with link to the student newspaper’s video of her main talk), plus 38 other videos with Chaplain James Yee, Ann Wright, Anthony Arnove, Kelly Doughterty, hip hop poet Son of Nun, Antonia Juhasz and many others.
