impeachment rallies held coast to coastfrom portland indymedia: Impeachment Protest for Human Rights Day at Pioneer Square at Noon… World Can’t Wait Portland is holding an Impeachment Protest on National Human Rights Day… The focus will be upon the legalization of torture, Military Commissions Act and impeachment.

from raw story: This Sunday, Human Rights Day has been renamed “Human Rights and Impeachment Day,” as groups hold rallies from coast to coast across the United States calling for President Bush and Vice President Cheney to be impeached.

“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,” co-founder Bob Fertik writes.

The rallies were “kicked off” yesterday at a New York City forum which featured former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman and anti-war “peace mom” Cindy Sheehan.

As her final legislative act on Friday, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney introduced an impeachment bill, although it was just a “symbolic parting shot” by the controversial Democrat and has no chance of passing.

According to After Downing Street, one of the activist groups helping to organize this weekend’s events, there “will now also be rallies to honor and thank Cynthia McKinney.”

Events scheduled for today include rallies and parades held in such cities as Seattle, Madison, Chicago, Detroit and Tallahassee. At a beach in San Francisco, human bodies will be used to spell out the word “Impeach!”

Also in San Francisco, “under the spot where the UN signed its charter 60 years ago,” activists will sing “carols” while clad in orange jump suits, similiar to the ones that detainees at Guantanamo Bay are forced to wear.

    Impeach for Peace has created holiday impeachment cards that allow your friends and family to initiate the impeachment process. Deck the halls of congress with colorful impeachment petitions! Now that Representative McKinney has introduced Articles of Impeachment to Congress, it’s time for us to show the other Members of Congress our support. So, Impeach for Peace created the Holiday Impeachment image, and researched a company that will allow you to send jumbo sized postcards along with a personalized message using your web browser. To learn more about this method of inititiating impeachment, go to:

    Soon, Santa will be delivering sacks and sacks of mail to Nancy Pelosi initiating impeachment via the House of Representative’s own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635). What better gift to give this holiday season than the restoration of our democracy? Truly the gift that keeps on giving. Over this past year, Bush has become an even greater threat to our Constitution. Lucky for us, the rules of the US House of Representatives allow for individual citizens like you and I to initiate the impeachment process directly! This process was successfully used to impeach in the past.

    Be a part of history and have a merry impeachment this season!
