Hear August Bullock's Ballad "Heroes of America" Then "Be a Hero! Stand Up and March for Impeachment, for Peace, for Justice!"
A great music video featuring the anti-war movement has inspired the theme of the this Impeachment Rally. "Be a Hero! Stand Up and March for Impeachment, for Peace, for Justice!" Calling all super-heroes, all citizens willing to put themselves out for Truth, Peace, Justice and IMPEACHMENT!
Join Superman, Wonder Woman, and Spiderman at an Impeachment Rally at 1:00 p.m. at Lytton Plaza in Palo Alto on Wednesday, May 9, 2007 and other heroic citizens to demand the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. During the rally, musician August Bullock will sing "Heroes of America," which inspired the theme for this month’s rally. The march will begin at 2:00 p.m. as the heroes courageously call for impeachment through downtown Palo Alto on their way to Congresswoman Anna Eshoo’s office at 698 Emerson Street, Palo Alto, CA 94301.
The heroes in Palo Alto are not the only ones calling for impeachment. Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced articles of impeachment against Vice President Cheney last week.
Congressman John Murtha mentioned impeachment as an option on CBS’s Face the Nation:
“We need to make this president understand, Mr. President, the public has spoken. There’s three ways or four ways to influence a president. One is popular opinion, the election, third is impeachment and fourth is the purse.”
When Bob Schieffer pressed him on whether impeachment was a serious option on the table, Murtha responded, “I’m just saying that’s one way to influence a president.”
Last Saturday, “the national day of impeachment,” in over 125 locations across the country, citizens spelled out “IMPEACH” to get their message across to the public, the press and the Congress. Over 1500 people gathered on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, laying their bodies on the line to spell out “IMPEACH NOW!” and then “PEACE NOW!” This demonstration, which was dramatically visible from the air, was followed by a long parade to Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco mansion where an Impeachment rally was held. Jacob Park, who maintains a website for the impeachment actions at http://www.a28.org and acted as a national coordinator, was overwhelmed by photos, videos, and reports of actions from around the U.S. as well as other countries, including Italy and Egypt.
Jacob Park and Amilie Coster, who organized the Coney Island “Impeach Beach” event both spoke about their experiences before and after April 28th on Palo Alto organizer Carol Brouillet’s internet radio “Impeachment shows.” The “We The People Radio Network” (http://www.wtprn.com) in Austin, Texas hosts Brouillet’s weekly program “Questioning War - Organizing Impeachment.”
During the April 30th show, Elizabeth de la Vega, a former federal prosecutor who developed a strong case for impeachment in her book United States v. George W. Bush et al., said that the articles of impeachment against Cheney clearly echoed the case that she laid out in her book, a case of deliberate “fraud” to mislead the nation into war. Anthony St. Martin, who launched the “Pledge to Impeach” campaign in 2006, also on the show, described the overwhelming support for impeachment that he found at the grassroots level of the Democratic Party and the resistance he encountered from “the leadership.” The “Impeachment Resolution” that was passed at last weekend’s Democratic Convention came from the grassroots, according to St. Martin, who plans to continue his organizing efforts to call for a general strike should Congress fail to support Impeachment. St. Martin had his doubts that Congress would heed their constituents about impeachment until they were forced to. Radio archive is at http://mp3.wtprn.com/Brouillet07.html.
Congresswoman Eshoo has repeatedly rejected calls for impeachment, claiming that removing the President would tear the country apart. Brouillet and other activists intend to remind her that her oath of office requires her to defend the Constitution against all enemies, even when those who threaten the Constitution include the President and Vice President.
Citizens have more courage than politicians these days and need to educate and mobilize more people, if we are to get Congress to stop serving war profiteers interests and begin serving the people that they are supposed to represent. You, too can be a hero - join us!
