In the outer suburbs of Washington, DC in Virginia's piedmont region, a group of at least two dozen very concerned citizens will meet this evening in a private home to listen to the re-enactment of the July 23, 2002 meeting, view a DVD containing highlights of the events of June 16 (Conyers
hearing, delivery of signatures to the White House, and rally in Lafayette Square Park), and discuss how we can keep this issue in front of our Congress persons and our neighbors.
Rep. Frank Wolf was invited to attend but he declined and was also unable to provide a position statement on the issues raised by the Downing Street Memo. We will create a delegation to go to his office to meet with him, as he suggested as an alternative to his attending our event.
We will submit photos of our group and a summary of our discussion as the event unfolds.
Everyone will leave the meeting with a page of action items that we will generate tonight, as well as numerous handouts from the afterdowningstreet.org web site.
The truth must come out and be heard by all Americans so I feel certain that some of our action items will relate to how we can keep this issue prominently covered in our local media which includes not only the Washington Post, but also several smaller, local papers.
Thank you, afterdowningstreet.org, for organizing this amazing day!
