When: 1 to 3 PM Sunday, December 10, 2006


Experts to discuss impeachment / accountability in public event. Steve Cobble, Institute for Policy Studies Fellow and Cofounder of AfterDowningStreet will discuss the Politics of Impeachment. Debra Sweet, National Organizer of World Can't Wait will express the Need to Drive out the Bush Regime and Rostam Pourzal, President of the Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran will focus on the need to prevent hostile actions against Iran. Tim Carpenter, Executive Director of Progressive Democrats of America and Cofounder of AfterDowningStreet will outline Grassroots' Demands for Impeachment.


Event Organizer Mike Hersh of Progressive Democrats said, “The demand for accountability and impeachment grew out of stunning revelations from the Downing Street documents which proved the Bush Administration sought war with Iraq despite their assurances to the contrary, the lack of evidence on weapons of mass destruction, and the successful inspections which made war unnecessary. Bush, Cheney and others took us to war based on lies. Other scandals including torture at Abu Ghraib, abuses at Gitmo, wiretapping innocent Americans and much more only increased these demands. This event will highlight and give voice to the powerful and growing pro-impeachment movement. The new Democratic Majority in Congress should heed these calls.”


Appearance and Photo Op by the Bush Chain Gang



"We started the Chain Gang project in order to aid the growing impeachment efforts around the country. We believe that impeachment is not a political problem as many like to frame it, but rather a Constitutional obligation." - backbonecampaign.org


The Bush Chain Gang depicts Bush, Cheney, Rice, and other officials as living political cartoons which add to any print or video news report. Featured in Reuters, CNN, New York Daily News, Lone Star Iconoclast, and Wisconsin State Journal reports.
