Put Impeachment on the Radio

Please Ask Your Local Radio Stations to Air These PSAs

This is an important project that we should each devote some time to. Cindy Sheehan, Ann Wright, Tim Robbins, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, and Ed Asner have recorded pro-impeachment public service announcements. We'll be adding more all the time at http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/psa

How to get them on the air:

1. Call a radio station. Ask to speak with the person responsible for public service announcements and/or ask to speak with hosts you expect to be friendly.

2. Identify yourself by name and say that you are assisting the nonpartisan coalition AfterDowningStreet.org and PDA in distributing public service announcements in support of Congressman John Conyers' House Resolution 635 - which calls for an investigation of the Bush administration.

3. Tell them the PSAs are available on a website as high-quality mp3s, and that you can give them the address http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/psa and that you can send them as Email attachments or on a disc, whatever is easier. Exchange contact information and arrange to get the PSAs to the station.

4. Follow up. Be persistent, without being annoying.

These Public Service Announcements are available for download and play on the radio. Simply Right-Click on an image and choose "Save Target As."

AfterDowningStreet.org would like to thank The People Speak radio, Pacifica radio, Ed Asner, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Tim Robbins, Cindy Sheehan, and Ann Wright. http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/psa

Website Launched to Promote Impeachment Resolution in California Legislature

Impeachment resolutions are sweeping the country. If you live in California, please check out this new website for how you can help your state legislature send impeachment charges to Congress: http://www.ajr39.com

The Maine Democratic Party passed an impeachment resolution this weekend. Here's the growing list of parties, towns, cities, and state legislatures that have passed or introduced such resolutions: http://impeachpac.org/resolutions-list

ImpeachPAC, a federal PAC funding pro-impeachment candidates for Congress, has announced its first endorsement of a candidate for the Senate, Jean Hay Bright of Maine, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican incumbent Olympia Snowe, who stands solidly with Bush no matter how many crimes he commits. http://impeachpac.org/endorse-bright

Thanks to you, ImpeachPAC has raised $77,336.94 from 1,974 dedicated impeachment supporters. Help us reach our goal of $100,000 here: http://impeachpac.org/dm02

What You Can Do for Peace on Wednesday

Demand an Open Debate on Iraq: National Call-In Day June 7 Call your Representative 202-224-3121 An open debate on Iraq is overdue!

Americans want their sons and daughters home. Children want their mothers and fathers home. The Iraqis want their nation back. Most of the troops think they should leave in the next six months. These are the compelling majority opinions that must be addressed. Facing this is a moral and non-partisan challenge.

But, after more than three years, $300 billion, and the death of over one hundred thousand Iraqis and nearly 2,500 American soldiers, Congress still refuses to debate real alternatives to the President's stay-the-course policy. It is a policy that over 80% of Iraqis, more than 70% of U.S. soldiers stationed in Iraq and a majority of Americans say is a failure.

As a people who seek peace and justice, we have a unique opportunity to demand that Congress stop passing the buck. So far, 122 members of the House of Representatives have signed a 'discharge petition' calling for immediate debate and consideration of ALL alternatives to the policy of open-ended occupation of Iraq. All we need is 96 more members to sign the petition for debate to begin. We need your help!

Call your U.S. Representative on June 7th. Ask your Representative to sign H.Res. 543 OR thank them if they have already signed and ask them to ask a colleague to sign H.Res. 543.

Here are lists of those who have and have not signed: http://www.openiraqdebate.com/inner/roll-call.html

The pressure we are applying is already having an impact. There have been news reports that some Republican members of Congress, hoping to dodge a real discussion about Iraq, will offer a tightly-controlled debate framed by supporters of the war. This alternative is clearly an election-year effort to sell the war to the public rather than address the failed policy and the need to bring the troops home. This alternative won't allow members who oppose the war to offer plans to bring the occupation to an end.

Tell your Congress Member that you demand to see a debate with an "open rule," meaning that any amendments can be introduced, debated, and voted on. The surest route to that debate is for them to sign the discharge petition and ask their colleagues to do the same.

Call 202-224-3121 and give the operator your Representative's name, or go to power search on Congress for the local district office: http://www.congressmerge.com/onlinedb/powersearch.htm
