Impeachment Town Hall Meeting - Houston, Sep. 4


Impeachment Town Hall Meeting in Houston - Labor Day afternoon

Tired of high crimes & misdemeanors in the White House, but don't know what to do about them?
On Labor Day, Sep. 4, join others at an IMPEACHMENT TOWN HALL MEETING in Houston, Texas with special guest and keynote speaker ANN WRIGHT.

Learn how to support the US Constitution and achieve (non-violent, of course) regime change here in the US.

Ann Wright is a veteran (retired US Army Colonel) and former diplomat who served in several US embassies. She's a great speaker and very familiar with the lies leading up to the US invasion of Iraq and other impeachable offenses. Read her June 2005 testimony to Congress on the Downing Street Memos, which outlines her many years in the US Army and State Department and why she resigned because of the US invasion of Iraq.

Ann Wright has appeared in the Houston area and elsewhere in Texas a number of times in the past two years, and was the keynote speaker at an overflow crowd in July 2006 at a Houston teach-in on the Downing Street Minutes. She also coordinated activities at Camp Casey, near Crawford, Texas, in August of 2005 and again this year.

Protect the Constitution.
Live up to our ideals and values.
End illegal spying, lying, and torture.

This is a non-partisan event.
The emphasis will be on the impeachable offenses committed by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, how to talk with people about those offenses in a way that will help them understand the necessity for impeachment, and what we as citizens can and should do about it. The goal is NOT to promote or bash a particular political party.

Note that this event is on Labor Day, a holiday for most of us. After celebrating the gains we've made in this country because of organized labor, let's do some organizing to make sure our children and grandchildren can enjoy the benefits we've had from living in the US. As citizens in a democracy, let's try to preserve what's left of it for them.

Program
Besides words from Ann Wright and some others, there will be:
* videos related to impeachment
* live and recorded music
* a workshop on how to talk with your friends, neighbors, and co-workers about impeachment from a positive point of view -- standing up for values we can all relate to, including supporting the Constitution, ending torture, etc.
* Impeachment T-shirts and bumper stickers
* space for tables & literature
* light refreshments

If you see counter-demonstrators, remember that even if they do not understand what our government is doing to us and to the rest of the world, that we are people of peace. Do not engage counter-demonstrators if they want to argue. Smile and be friendly.

Sponsors
This event is sponsored and organized by the Progressive Action Alliance, and co-sponsored by the Houston chapters of Veterans for Peace and Code Pink.
