2. "VOICES FOR IMPEACHMENT" evening program featuring MICHAEL RATNER, JOHN NICHOLS, CINDY SHEEHAN, DEBRA SWEET, message from GORE VIDAL, 7pm, Thursday, January 4, 2007
National Press Club, 529 14th Street Northwest (one block east of the White House)
Millions thought they were voting against the war and the president, but the Democratic leadership of the new Congress has declared that impeachment is off the table. If war crimes, torture, and crimes against humanity are not reasons to impeach, what is?
On January 4, people will demonstrate at the opening of Congress carrying signs and doing street theatre dressed in orange Guantanamo torture jumpsuits. The demand: that Congress investigate and hold accountable the Bush administration for criminal liability, and that the House of Representatives immediately initiate Articles of Impeachment against President Bush for his multiple “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
And that night at 7pm, MICHAEL RATNER (president, Center for Constitutional Rights), JOHN NICHOLS, CINDY SHEEHAN, and DEBRA SWEET will speak at the National Press Club at a forum sponsored by World Can't Wait. GORE VIDAL will send a video message.
Debra Sweet, National Director of World Can’t Wait: "A regime as criminal as the Bush regime should not be allowed to remain in office. This unjust war was started on lies and has continued for four years despite an election where millions thought they were voting to stop it. The Democrats, now the majority, allow debate only on how to run the war more effectively, and are saying that impeachment can’t even be considered. This is unacceptable. If George Bush is not removed from office before 2008, then everything he has done -- his doctrine of preemptive war, his legalization of torture, his undermining of the rule of law, and his elevating the role of fundamentalist Christianity in the laws, culture and institutions of the country -- will continue no matter who becomes the next president. As people of conscience living in the U.S. we cannot allow that to happen.”
