The combined Birmingham chapters of Democracy For America and Progressive Democrats of America will host a gathering in recognition of the 3rd Anniversary of the now infamous #10 Downing Street meeting. More than 300 similar gatherings are planned throughout the country, thanks to AfterDowningStreet.org and Representative John Conyers of Michigan.
"This will be an evening of discussion of the issues surrounding the Bush Administration's actions and intentions for going to war in Iraq, as well as 'Rovegate' plus the John Roberts Supreme Court nomination," the press release says. "We will have information for developing letter-writing campaigns to our elected leaders on all levels, plus input from all on how we can make a difference in Birmingham and the state of Alabama. (We are already getting close to just one year to significant elections!)"
"Gather with us Saturday night, your involvement is needed. We will have DVD's to watch that will be of interest, and some that will stir progressives up!
"Today marks the three-year anniversary of the now-legendary meeting between high-level U.S. and British officials, the day two men secretly decided to go to war. Now we know that Congress and the American people were ntentionally deceived."
