Impeachment: It Is Time To Act On The Impeachment Of Bush and Cheney

















A28 ANNOUNCES MoveOn.Org Shift On Impeachment:

and A.N.S.W.E.R.org Prepares For The Big One Sept 15th

http://www.a28.org/


You are receiving this special message because you recently signed a petition urging MoveOn to survey its members on impeachment. Well, I'm very pleased to tell you that MoveOn heard you loud and clear and has finally put impeachment back on the table.

This week MoveOn launched a petition calling on Congress to impeach Vice President Cheney if he continues to defy congressional subpoenas issued to investigate the Bush administration's purge of prosecutors at the Justice Department. This is great news, and signals that we may be on the verge of a major tipping point in the nationwide movement for impeachment.

If you have not already done so, I encourage you to add your name to the petition at http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=hcny4bcab.0.jgey4bcab.owp697bab.8509&ts=S0258&p=http%3A%2F%2Fpol.moveon.org%2Fsubpoena%2F. And thanks to MoveOn for finally joining the growing movement for real accountability.

The Majority of Americans Want Cheney ImpeachedThe welcome news from MoveOn comes just as a new poll conducted by the American Research Group http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=hcny4bcab.0.kgey4bcab.owp697bab.8509&ts=S0258&p=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.americanresearchgroup.com%2F finds that 54% of American adults want the US House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings against Vice President Dick Cheney, including 76% of Democrats, 17% of Republicans, and 51% of Independents. The same poll found 46% of voters in favor of the same thing for President George W. Bush, including 69% of Democrats, 13% of Republicans, and 50% of independents.


New Video: Impeach Dick Cheney

Last, but not least, our friends at Brave New Films have created an terrific new video laying out the evidence for impeaching Dick Cheney and with an accompanying petition that will be sent to Representatives in every district urging them to join the 14 signers of H. Res. 333, the Articles of Impeachment against Dick Cheney. See below for a special message from them with more information.

Please watch the film, sign the petition, and spread this as widely as you can!Dear activists, colleagues and friends,

That's right, we said the "I" word. And you should be saying it too -- to your family, your friends, your neighbors, your pets and the hearty 26% of Americans who somehow still believe the Bush/Cheney team more worthy of sitting in the Oval Office than an undisclosed location stripped of all authority to further damage the country we love.

1. Watch the video2. Sign the petition

You'll want to say it even more after watching our video with the evidence for impeachment right there: http://impeachcheney.org/

Dick Cheney has been a malevolent force on the checks and balances of American government for over six years. He has subverted government processes to lead us into this tragedy in Iraq, and is now seeking to do the same with Iran. Two countries, mind you, he did business with while CEO of Halliburton.

We are at an important moment in American history. For if we don't take action in light of the High Crimes and Misdemeanors committed by one Richard Cheney, we might as well throw the word away. Because there will never be a time when it is more justified.

Sign the petition: http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=hcny4bcab.0.5jrn5bcab.owp697bab.8509&ts=S0258&p=http%3A%2F%2Fimpeachcheney.org%2Fpetition.php
14 representatives already support H. Res 333, the articles of Impeachment against Dick Cheney. Your signatures will be used to get other House members to to sign on. We are working with a substantial and growing coalition led by Democrats.com and AfterDowningStreet.org.

Let's make this travesty a turning point in our history. Please join us in restoring democratic principles to our government by IMPEACHING DICK CHENEY.

Sincerely,Robert, Cliff, Paris, Jim G and the entire Brave New Films team.

March on Washington A.N.S.W.E.R. Org

Saturday, September 15 Washington, DC

END THE WAR NOW!

Come to Washington DC on September 15 for a large antiwar protest timed to coincide with the report by General Petraeus on the "Surge" in Iraq. There will be actions in the halls and offices of Congress in the days following the September 15 march. Click here for more information and to get involved.

Initial sponsors of the march include:

The ANSWER Coalition; Ramsey Clark; Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation; Mounzer Sleiman, Vice Chair, National Council of Arab Americans; Cindy Sheehan; Cynthia McKinney; Navy Petty Officer Jonathan Hutto, co-founder Appeal for Redress; Liam Madden, Pres., Boston Chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War and co-founder of Appeal for Redress; Malik Rahim, founder of Common Ground Collective, New Orleans; Howard Zinn, Author and Historian; Carlos & Melida Arredondo, Gold Star Families for Peace; Rev.

September 15 — Turn Up the Heat in Washington DC!

Calendar of upcoming anti-war events

We want to thank the thousands of people and many organizations that have responded to ANSWER’s May 31 Proposal to the Anti-War Movement. The essence of the proposal is for all the anti-war coalitions and organizations to come together to mobilize the largest single mass march on Washington DC under the demand End the War Now!

Most anti-war activists support this idea.

At the national level some organizations support the call for building a united mass mobilization.

Others are opposing it.

The ANSWER Coalition will continue to promote and organize for a united action where organizations and coalitions can come together and organize a march of a million people to show the breadth and support of the anti-war sentiment in this country.

March 2008 will mark the start of the sixth year of the Iraq war. If the anti-war organizations desire to unite, it would be an important moment to organize a huge show of force demanding an immediate end to the war. In unity there is great strength—it is that simple.

We are convening a meeting on Saturday, July 28 in Washington DC to discuss the proposal for a united anti-war demonstration of one million people.

All organizations who are committed to this perspective or who are seriously considering this perspective are invited to join together in a day-long strategy session. If you or your organization is interested in attending the meeting, please indicate so by clicking this link.

The coming months are crucial. We have to intensify our organizing efforts so that the voice of the people is heard loud and clear. The so-called "Surge" has succeeded at nothing but the killing of an ever-larger number of Iraqis in neighborhoods throughout Baghdad. The occupation forces and the puppet government in Iraq cannot pacify the country.

Every month, more than 3,000 Iraqis are killed, and the U.S. death toll has been higher in the last three months than in any other three-month period of the war.

September 15 — Join Thousands to Turn Up the Heat in Washington DC
The ANSWER Coalition;

Ramsey Clark; Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation; Mounzer Sleiman, Vice Chair, National Council of Arab Americans; Cindy Sheehan; Cynthia McKinney; Navy Petty Officer Jonathan Hutto, co-founder Appeal for Redress; Liam Madden, Pres., Boston Chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War and co-founder of Appeal for Redress; Malik Rahim, founder of Common Ground Collective, New Orleans; Howard Zinn, Author and Historian; Carlos & Melida Arredondo, Gold Star Families for Peace; Rev. Graylan Hagler, Ministers for Racial, Social and Economic Justice; Code Pink; Latino Movement USA; Hermandad Mexicana Nacional; Ron Kovic, Vietnam Veteran, author, Born on the 4th of July; Leonard Weinglass, Cuban 5 attorney; Michael Berg; National Lawyers Guild; Father Luis Barrios, Iglesia de San Romero de las Americas - UCC and many others are joining together to sponsor a large protest in Washington DC timed to coincide with the report by General Petraeus on the "Surge" in Iraq. There will be actions in the halls and offices of Congress in the days following the September 15 march.

We urge every organization to join in this effort. To register your support for the September 15 march and the actions scheduled in the days following September 15, click on this link.

Bush and the Pentagon are required to report to Congress on the progress of the "Surge" in Iraq on September 15. Congress will hold hearings the following week. The eyes of the national and international media will be focused on Washington DC and on the words and positions of the politicians and generals. We are determined to make sure that this so-called debate cannot take place inside Congress without them hearing the voices of thousands of angry veterans, students and working people demanding End the War Now!

Funding for the war, which totals $300 million each day, will have to be formally renewed by Congress. It is obvious that the politicians in Congress have become discredited (their approval rating is even lower than Bush’s) because they haven’t voted to end the war.

The ANSWER Coalition believes that it is crucial that thousands of people come to Washington DC on September 15 and Turn Up the Heat to demand not one more penny be spent on this criminal war for empire.

If the voice of the people is to be heard during this "debate" we must arrive in Washington DC on September 15—not after it is over. This is not the time for symbolic protests—we need to make the politicians and generals feel the heat of the people’s anger. In order to do that, we need as many people as possible to stay in Washington DC. We need to occupy the halls and offices of Congress. We need to raise our voices to demand that Congress stop funding the war immediately.

Schedule of September actions:

Saturday, September 15: March on the White House and Congress

Sunday, September 16: National organizers’ meeting and training

September 17-20: Actions in the halls, hearing rooms and offices of Congress

It is highly significant that ImpeachBush.org and other impeachment organizations will be mobilizing thousands of people to come to Washington DC starting on September 15.

ImpeachBush.org will be publishing newspaper ads urging those who support the impeachment of Bush and Cheney to make their voices heard from September 15-20, 2007.

The ANSWER Coalition welcomes the impeachment movement. At the March 17, 2007, March on the Pentagon Impeach Bush signs and banners were everywhere.

October 20-27: A Week of Nationally-Coordinated Local and Regional Demonstrations

The anti-war movement and the impeachment movement are joining forces to carry out mass local and regional actions in cities and towns throughout the country from October 20-27.

The ANSWER Coalition will initiate many actions and support and promote the actions of all other anti-war coalitions that will take place during this week. These actions will include large-scale demonstrations, rallies, picket lines, mass leaflet distributions at military bases, activities and walk-outs at college campuses and high schools, and other actions.

There can be actions in every state and every city and town showing that the anti-war sentiment is the majority sentiment and that the people are determined to end the war now.

The Week of Nationally-Coordinated Local and Regional Actions will begin on the weekend of October 20-21, the exact 40th anniversary weekend of the historic March on the Pentagon where tens of thousands marched under the banner "From Protest to Resistance!"

We must act now, as I have reminded you time and again, the sooner we may have the chance to avoid the last step; that step from RESISTANCE TO REBELLION!
