Cheney Protest in Mississippi

May 12, 2008
Mississippi CODEPINK
Southaven, MS




“We do not expect Dick Cheney to say anything that will help the people of Mississippi. In my opinion, Cheney’s been in office for 7+ years and has done nothing to serve the American People, just special interest groups.” said Kelly Jacobs, a fruit farmer from Hernando and MS delegate to Denver for Hillary. “Bush’s motorcade to Graceland had a Gatling gun pointed at those of us standing on the sidewalk from the back window. I wonder who will be manning such a weapon in Cheney’s motorcade?”

Kelly Jacobs of CODEPINK Mississippi coordinated this protest at Cheney's appearance in Mississippi.

Kelly reported that there were lots of issues with the strict free speech zone. She was interviewed by several television stations.
