States and Impeachment

Did you know that a state legislature can send impeachment charges to Congress? Read the rules. It's been done. In fact, twice. Here's a sample resolution for your state to pass. And did you know that any single responsible congress member can introduce articles of impeachment?

Spreading & Deepening the Movement to Drive Out the Bush Regime

From the National Steering Committee of World Can't Wait, 2/21

When the President used the State of the Union address January 31 to relentlessly push his case for unending war on the world, unimpeded domestic spying, faith-based initiatives and an attack on stem cell research and abortion, some reported this as a "moderate speech with no new proposals." But there was a different response in the streets of more than 60 cities, when tens of thousands perceived Bush’s address as a State of Emergency. Then, Saturday, over two thousand came right to the White House to demand "Bush Step Down and Take Your Program with You!"

Strategy for meeting with Congresspeople on impeachment

Work with the campaign office
By Carol Wolman, http://www.opednews.com

Congresspeople have two offices, a congressional office, which handles their current business, and a campaign office, which handles their upcoming election, which occurs every two years. Staying in Congress is a prime goal, as committee assignments and power depend on seniority,- the number of times the person is re-elected. Therefore, the campaign office is ongoing. Often the same staff covers both offices locally.

Why Peace Organizations Should Work for the Impeachment of Bush and Cheney

By David Swanson

1.-Impeachment is where people's energy is, all over the country. If we want a large and growing and democratic movement, we should listen to our members.

2.-Exposing the lies and the crimes related to this war is, more than anything else, building opposition to the war, as well as to future wars. There is no better way to expose the crimes than to demand an investigation that could lead to impeachment. (As demanded by H Res 635.)

Road to Peace Goes Through Santa Cruz

By David Swanson

The following are remarks I made last Wednesday night in Santa Cruz, California, at an event held in the Veterans Hall, where the star speaker was Medea Benjamin, and where a group of Raging Grannies with pink aprons and rolling pins belted out anti-Bush songs of their own creation that brought down the house. Medea was tremendous, and I recommend watching the video once they get it online.

www.unitedforpeace.org

Have you made plans yet to mark the third anniversary of the Iraq War?

From time to time, our movement gathers in mass mobilizations (as we will on April 29 in New York City). As dramatic and inspiring as those events are, the heart and soul of the peace movement is community-based, local work, which is why United for Peace and Justice has called for nationally coordinated local actions on the third anniversary of the Iraq War.

Action Alert: Missing From ABC's WMD 'Scoop' -- Star defector Hussein Kamel said weapons were destroyed

http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=2825

On February 15, ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross delivered an exclusive report on World News Tonight and Nightline that purported to be a bombshell. ABC had obtained tape-recorded conversations from mid-1995 that seemed to show that Iraq had been concealing its weapons of mass destruction program. The tapes, according to Ross, "will only serve to fuel the continuing debate about Saddam's true intentions and whether he, in fact, did hide weapons of mass destruction." But ABC viewers were left in the dark about information that would undermine the tape's most important revelations.
