Impeachment By Spring: Here's The Plan
by dag | Nov 16 2006
The case for impeaching Bush and Cheney is overwhelming, and 51% of Americans think Democrats should investigate and impeach them.
But Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi insists impeachment is "off the table."
We can put it back "on the table" by mobilizing the 51% majority that supports impeachment into a powerful grassroots lobbying force.
Here is our plan:
Collect 1 Million Signatures on our Impeachment Petition
In the first 3 days we have collected over 6,000 signatures on our Petition to Impeach Bush and Cheney.
Please sign here
and forward the petition to your friends.
Then print copies of our simplified impeachment petition

and collect signatures from friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
When you're finished collecting, keypunch the email addresses into our form to ask the signers to complete the full petition online
Form 435 Congressional District Impeachment Committees (CDIC)
There are 435 Congressional Districts for the House of Representatives, and we'd like to form Impeachment Committees in each one.
Congressional District Impeachment Committees will:
1. Collect petitions (see above)
2. Write letters and op-eds to local papers
3. Meet directly with Representatives to persuade them to support impeachment
4. Organize Town Hall meetings (see below)
Check to see if someone has already created a CDIC in your Congressional District, otherwise start one yourself
Hold Impeachment Events on December 10: Human Rights and Impeachment Day
December 10 is Human Rights Day, and this year we're making it Human Rights and Impeachment Day. Slogan: "Putting Impeachment on the Table."
We encourage you to organize a town hall forum or rally on this day for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney.
You can create a public listing of your event here. You will be able to communicate with the people who sign up for your event, and to edit the listing for your event, changing or filling in details later.
You can view existing events and sign up to attend one here.
Here is a list of available speakers with their contact info.
Be sure also to invite your Congress Member or newly elected future Congress Member to speak.
Here are resources that will make your event easy and effective.
