Rallies for Impeachment Coast to Coast This Sunday

Rallies for Impeachment Coast to Coast This Sunday


http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/december10

A coalition of organizations in support of the impeachment and removal from office of President Bush and Vice President Cheney has planned forums, rallies, and other events in towns and cities across the United States on Sunday, December 10, Human Rights Day. A few of the events will be on other days, including a forum in New York City that will kick things off on Saturday, December 9.

The purpose of the events is to organize people to lobby their Congress Members for investigations and impeachment and to lobby their local and state governments for resolutions in support of impeachment. Dozens of cities have already passed such resolutions:
