Singer Joan Baez supports Mother protester

Folk singer Joan Baez joined anti-war protesters near U.S. President George W. Bush's ranch on Sunday to meet with military families who want troops pulled out of Iraq.

"You know in the first march I went on against the war in Vietnam there were 10 of us," Baez said as she met with a group of women whose sons died in Iraq or were being deployed there.

"This is huge," she was quoted as saying by Reuters.

As pravda.ru informed earlier, hundreds of anti-war supporters sat on fold-out chairs under a huge white tent on a pasture provided by a local landowner adjacent to a checkpoint near Bush's ranch, according to Reuters.

It is the new campsite where supporters of Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey died in Iraq last year, moved.

Sheehan drew attention to the anti-war movement when she came to Crawford on August 6 and camped out along a country road, asking that Bush meet her again and explain the cause for which her son died.
