!!...Impeach Now...!!

{thanks to Toni for the link] Impeach protests coordinator hopes 'Republicans can see which way the wind is blowing' Michael Roston - Published: Saturday April 28, 2007 This Saturday, April 28 will mark a national day of action as people gather around the country to show their support for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. "The elections last November were in many ways a referendum on the war, and the American people clearly think it's a disaster and should be stopped," said Jacob Park, the National Coordinator of , explaining what is motivating tomorrow's day of action. "The Democrats have been talking tough but so far haven't changed anything on the ground. I think Americans are increasingly impatient for them to call the administration's bluff and start wielding their newfound power in a way that has real consequences." Park's group is helping coordinate activities around the country to promote the initiation of impeachment proceedings against the Bush White House. Some of the major activities include: * Miami: An 'unwelcoming party' to greet George Bush, who will be delivering the commencement address at Miami Dade College. * San Francisco: Protesters will spell out 'IMPEACH' in a 'human mural' at Ocean Beach, followed by a march to a rally at Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi's house. * San Diego: Introduction of an impeachment resolution at the California Democratic Convention, coinciding with a rally at Martin Luther King Park, and a human mural at a nearby beach. * New York: A human mural at Coney Island organized by mothers with sons who served in Iraq, an Impeachment Festival in Central Park, and Impeachment "laser graffiti" in Brooklyn. * Washington, D.C.: A human mural and picnic at the foot of the Washington monument. * Boston: A town crier will read articles of impeachment at Faneuil Hall. * 'ImpeachPlanes' will tow banners over New York City, Los Angeles, Trenton, Atlanta, St. Petersburg, the New Orleans Jazzfest, and the Coachella music festival. Zeroing in on the San Diego efforts, where Speaker Pelosi will be delivering a Saturday night dinner address, Park slammed the California's stated opposition to impeaching Bush or Cheney. "It's not a question of what 'George Bush' is worth." he said. "To shrug off the enormous crimes that have been committed by this administration, and to shirk the power that she now has to seek a modicum of justice, is a deeply immoral act." Park also held out hope that Republicans would be persuaded to sign on with the message that his group and others were promoting. "The Republicans can see which way the wind is blowing, and know that these two have nothing to offer them except associations with a disastrous and deeply unpopular war. The problem is, they all supported it," he argued. "Bush and Cheney could be the ultimate fall guys for their collective misdeeds." LINK

I was at the DC event where hundreds of us spelled out IMPEACH with our bodies. Photos were taken from the Washington Monument.
