Activists Planning Impeachment Protest at New Year's Rose Bowl Parade

A local and national coalition of impeachment activists is planning to stage various protests and demonstrations throughout the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, California, on New Year's Day. The convergence of groups is called the White Rose Coalition in honor of the resistance movement that emerged in Munich Germany in 1942. It includes members of the Los Angeles National Impeachment Center (LANIC), Code Pink, World Can't Wait, ANSWER, Progressive Democrats of America, the Green Party, Veterans for Peace, United for Peace and Justice, and others They are calling for impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, based upon Articles of Impeachment which pertain to what they call "high crimes and misdemeanors." The groups are staging this protest because "this administration is said to be planning yet another illegal invasion, this time bombing Iran," according to Cynthia Mather, a spokesperson from LANIC. "The consequences of such an assault on global well-being and security would be catastrophic," she said. "The Democrats are not making any move to stop it, so impeachment is our only recourse."

Numbers of protestors and demonstrators from the various groups could be in the hundreds or, possibly, in the thousands, says Peter Thottam, Executive Director of LANIC. "We expect this to be a national day of impeachment visibility, with folks joining from all parts of the country. It is hard to gauge how many will show up, but according to the latest MSNBC poll, when 584,000 people were asked if they thought Bush had committed impeachable offenses, 89 per cent said yes! There is a tremendous level of anger and frustration out there. I doubt if our Washington, D.C. politicians have any idea just how much. Bush and Cheney are shredding our Constitution. Our Congress is obligated to act now before it is too late."
