Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Fellow citizens, you are cordially invited to an IMPEACHMENT!
It shall be a People's Impeachment, where WE THE PEOPLE shall impeach Bush and Cheney by Public Proclamaton.
Patriotic citizens, we are calling YOU to do your duty on Sat. Apr. 28th at historic Faneuil Hall in the city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Technically, "IMPEACH" means, simply "to bring charge against". And, THAT is precisely what we in Boston intend to do that day by public mandate!
April 28th has been designated as a national day of action on impeachment: http://www.a28.org/boston
If the Congress won't do it, then we will! Together we'll show them how it's done.
DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
We shall gather there at HIGH NOON by the statue of Sam Adams in the public square in front of Faneuil Hall (the birthplace of the American Revolution) to hear charges of impeachment formally and publicly declared against President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard B. Cheney.
We shall publicly indict them for their persistent abuses of power, their official misconduct and gross negligence while in office, for their numerous violations of the U.S. Constitution and their sworn oaths to uphold it, and last but not least, for their continued violations of international law and crimes against humanity! (See list of charges HERE: http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/downloads/petition-4.pdf )
When the people have publicly assembled, our Town Crier shall call them to order. The accused (see photo: http://www.backbonecampaign.org/chaingang.cfm ) shall then be made to face their accusers, the betrayed American public, assembled before them. The Town Crier shall then commence with the public reading of the impeachment charges against President Bush and Vice President Cheney, aloud for all to hear .
The public, so assembled as a People's Committee on Impeachment, shall then be asked to consider the charges against the accused and to vote 'YEA' or 'NAY' whether Bush and Cheney should be charged with the list of crimes read before them.
If the vote by the people be 'YEA', then WE THE PEOPLE (on behalf of the citizens of the city of Boston and United States) SHALL at that time DECLARE Bush and Cheney formally IMPEACHED BY PUBLIC PROCLAMATION ratified by a mandate from the people (in accordance with the 1st & 10th ammendments to the U.S. Constitution and the principles of Declaration of Independence)!
SO, COME, SPEAK OUT! LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
Come celebrate your independence from those corrupt usurpers power in Washington who everyday shows such contempt for our Constitution and the rule of law in America.
Come join us as we exercise our rights to peaceably assemble and speak out demanding a redress of grievances from the government!
After we the people have stood up and charged this corrupt administation with for the crimes they have committed, then we will have a number of notable speakers on various issues relating to the impeachment charges, and others talking about impeachment activism locally and across the country.
We will also invite ordinary members of the public to step up to the podium and declare their personal reasons for stepping up and impeaching Bush and Cheney for their crimes on that day.
So, come BE A PART OF HISTORY! Or, AT LEAST, if nothing else... come be a part of a REALLY FUN, SELF-EMPOWERING STREET PROTEST and (hopefullly) a REALLY GOOD YOUTUBE VIDEO too - that will help inspire others to speak out and take action as well!
Of course, we will NEED YOUR HELP, if we're going to successfully pull off this creative bit of street theatre.
To send a big message, we need a big crowd. To get a big crowd of people, all standing up and voting to impeach, we need your help in organizing it. We need help on that day, Sat. Apr. 28th, and before then helping to promote the event and organize other logistics of the event.
