December 10, 2006: Human Rights and Impeachment Day
December 10 is Human Rights Day, and this year we're making it Human Rights and Impeachment Day. Slogan: "Putting Impeachment on the Table."
We encourage you to organize a town hall forum or rally on this day for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney.
You can create a public listing of your event here. You will be able to communicate with the people who sign up for your event, and to edit the listing for your event, changing or filling in details later.
You can view existing events and sign up to attend one here.
Here is a list of available speakers with their contact info.
Be sure also to invite your Congress Member or newly elected future Congress Member to speak.
Here are resources that will make your event easy and effective.
If you want to include war resisters in your event, you may want to join forces with this effort by Courage to Resist and also list your event on their website.
There are also events planned outside the United States. The technology of the events system we're using won't include them, but you can submit them to us to be posted here.
