ABSTRACT
The article discusses the growing strength of the peace movement in the United States as support for the war in Iraq continues to wane. It talks about the antiwar demonstrations held in various cities in the United States and in London, England, on September 24, 2005. Several factors are cited for the resurgence of a visible movement against the Iraq war. Among these are a series of events that led to the erosion of public support for the war. The most visible cause of the change in public mood however, the article points out, is Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, held a 26-day vigil outside U.S. President George W. Bush's vacation ranch in hopes of asking him directly what the "noble cause" for which her son died was. Sheehan and her supporters were widely covered in the media and this made her the human face for questions about the war.
