<< San Francisco City Council Joins Impeachment Movement

Help Place Impeachment Ad in the San Francisco Chronicle

While we were working in the last week to raise sufficient funds to place the full page newspaper ad in the San Francisco Chronicle before March 18, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors (the city council) voted by a 7-3 margin to support the impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The resolution calls on the Democratic delegation from the city to move for impeachment. The timing of the ad couldn't be better. Similar resolutions are being offered in city councils around the country. The people must use all avenues to pursue this growing nationwide grassroots movement.

We need to urgently raise $15,000 to finish paying for the next full page newspaper ad. Click here to make a donation today. Each time the ad appears, the impeachment message reaches hundreds of thousands of new people. Many become active volunteers and supporters, and in turn help reach other people in their community, neighborhood and work place. Click here to help to help pay for the upcoming ad in the San Francisco Chronicle.

The impeachment campaign is in full swing

Just last week tens of thousands of people participated in the People’s Impeachment Lobby by sending letters to their Congressional Representatives.

Last Thursday, New York City’s historic Town Hall Theatre in Times Square filled up with people supporting impeachment. The event was sponsored by Harper’s magazine. Many of those in attendance took the petitions home with them promising to collect signatures in the coming weeks.

Radio personality Garrison Keillor has just released an article entitled "Impeach Bush." and actor Richard Dreyfuss called for impeachment, while speaking before the National Press Club in Washington.

28 members of US Congress have now signed on to H Res 635, including US Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), the original co-sponsor. The current 28 total co-sponsors are Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI), Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA), Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO), Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA), Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI), Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. James Oberstar (D-MN), Rep. John Olver (D-MA), Rep. Major Owens (D-NY), Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ), Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Rep. Martin Sabo (D-MN), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Rep. Fortney Pete Stark (D-CA), Rep. John Tierney (D-MA), Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA).

Everyone who has been active with as a volunteer, activist or donor should be proud. When this movement started, we were confronted by the naysayers who said it couldn’t be done. Bush was tall in the saddle back then. The people who have made this movement come alive didn’t persevere because the issue was “popular.” People have sacrificed to make this movement happen because it is critically important. There was too much at stake to remain passive.

We receive letters from people all over the country and they breathe of confidence and conviction. Elderly people and those on fixed income send messages and moving stories, sometimes with a donation of a single dollar bill. A one dollar or five dollar donation from someone on a fixed income can be as great a sacrifice as a larger donation from someone who makes a decent salary or has savings. This a true people’s movement and it can only succeed by everyone showing their support. Click here to help the movement grow.

San Francisco Supervisors Ask Lawmakers to Impeach Bush

by Edward Epstein, Charlie Goodyear

San Francisco's supervisors jumped into national politics Tuesday, passing a resolution asking the city's Democratic congressional delegation to seek the impeachment of President Bush for failing to perform his duties by leading the country into war in Iraq, eroding civil liberties and engaging in other activities the board sees as transgressions.

The supervisors, in voting 7-3 for the resolution, made it likely that San Francisco again will become grist for radio and TV talk shows. The city has appeared in the national media spotlight recently for voters' passage in November of a nonbinding measure banning military recruiters from public high schools and for Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval's recent comment on a Fox News show that the United States doesn't need a military.

Supervisor Chris Daly, one of the most progressive members of the board, sponsored the resolution, which also calls for the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney. Daly said the measure is justified in light of the administration's case for and handling of the war in Iraq, the federal government's inadequate response to Hurricane Katrina and recent revelations about a domestic wiretapping program."I think the case is clear, and I think it's appropriate for us to weigh in," Daly said. >>
