Rep. Jim McDermott to Hold Town Hall Meeting in Seattle to discuss Downing Street Minutes, Rovegate, and the ongoing deception of the Iraq War.
(Seattle, WA) Congressperson Jim McDermott will host a town hall meeting to discuss the manipulation of prewar intelligence, the Downing Street Minutes, White House improprieties committed by Karl Rove and other Bush Administration officials, and the war in Iraq. The event, free and open to the public, will be held at the Seattle Labor Temple, July 23, 1-3 pm. The Seattle Labor Temple is located at 2800 1st Ave, between Broad and Clay Streets, and the event will be in Hall One.
Sponsored by the Backbone Campaign, the meeting will include a video viewing of Representative John Conyers' delivery of half a million citizen signatures demanding that Congress launch an Inquiry into the manipulation of intelligence leading up to the Iraq war. Attendees will also have a chance to watch some live political theater when local dramatists stage a dramatic reading of the Downing Street minutes. There will be refreshments, action tables and discussions on organizing for the next step.
The Backbone Campaign, a grassroots effort to embolden citizens and elected officials to stand up for a progressive future, commends the leadership that Congressmember McDermott is taking on holding the Bush Administration accountable to the American people's quest for truth and justice. The meeting in Seattle is just one of hundreds that are being held concurrently that day across the country, the third anniversary of the historic Downing Street meeting in London.
