Sheehan, 49, of Vacaville, C.A.; Melissa Beattie, 57, of New York; Susan “Medea” Benjamin, 54, of San Francisco; and Patricia Ackerman, 48, of Nyack, N.Y. were arrested in March for blocking the entrance to the U.S. Mission to the United Nations while trying to deliver an anti-war petition with over 72,000 signatures.
Sheehan has been an outspoken force for peace since her son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004. The four co-defendants, who call their campaign, “Women Say No To War,” delivered their petition after the verdict was announced.
