February Protests - Calls for Impeachment Rising

by D. Burbeck Thursday, Mar. 09, 2006 at 2:52 PM

State Senator Alan Bates of Oregon and the San Francisco Rules Committee are recommending impeachment of the Bush Administration.

[I neglected to provide the link to these stories yesterday.

I shouldn't attempt this with a viral infection. Sorry]

In Pakistan, thousands demonstrated against

the bombing attack by the US Military. Protests

were also seen in Morocco, the Dominican Republic

and in India where Pres. Bush was scheduled to

meet with officials.

In England there were vigils held in all the major

cities commemorating Britian's 100th soldier's

death in Iraq.


Shortly after the findings were released, activist

Heather Hurwitz confronted Defense Secretary

Donald Rumsfeld with the Commission's verdict."

In Washington, DC "on the evening of Feb 4,

protestors continued the offensive of home protests.

With torture and exploitation as the common theme,

we first visited the home of a GSK exec (a SHAC

action), then moved on to the home of Paul Wolfowiz's

girlfriend, where he is rumored to sleep."

In New Orleans, "anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan staged

a protest at one of the city's shuttered housing projects

Tuesday, a day after 12,000 families left homeless by

last year's hurricanes were forced to leave their federally

funded hotel rooms."

Sheehan also spoke at a rally in Chicago. "The rally

ended with a short walk to Congressman Rahm

Emmanual's office a block away. Shoes representing

both the civilian as well as military dead were left on

his doorstep as a sad reminder of his failure to live

up to antiwar election promises. The temperature

was 30 degrees below freezing with the windchill."

Sheehan was also in Houston. "As mothers, fathers

and American citizens, we want to join Cindy Sheehan

in asking Barbara Bush "Why did our sons die for

your son's lies?""

"State Sen. Bates calls for Bush Impeachment!

At a large town hall meeting when asked about

domestic spying Oregon State Senator Alan Bates

stated: "I believe the President should be impeached

over this" and he went on to say, "No President has

unbridled power.""

"San Francisco, 2/16 - SF Rules Committee Recommends

Impeachment of Bush and Cheney."

LA - "A large group gathered at Hollywood and Vine Metro

Station from different parts of L.A. to join the Peace

and Love No War Bike Ride -- a happy fun lovin' event

that weaved it's way around L.A.'s main streets, tree

lined neighborhoods, cut through heavy traffic, waved

peace signs in the air, and shouted no war and ride

a bike slogans. Almost everyone on the ride had a

smile beaming across their face."

Also in LA, "Antiwar Art Exhibit: "The New Normalcy."

THE NEW NORMALCY features paintings, prints,

and drawings that focus on the post 9-11 reality of

endless war, terror, and repression."

"Oaklander stages 5-day, 24-hour protest against war in park

An Oregon town by a 7 - 2 vote the Corvallis City Council

became the first city in Oregon to adopt a resolution calling

for the planned withdrawl of troops from Iraq."

"On Feb 22,, a national political action

committee, organized its members in nearly 300 US

cities coast to coast to protest what they say is illegal

wiretapping by the NSA, and to call for an immediate,

independent investigation of the spy program."

Anti-recruitment demonstrations were held in Boston,

and NYC

Bush, Rumsfeld, and Powell were met with protesters

in cities where they gave speeches.

And in the strangest demonstration last month "Tucson

Raging Grannies Give Valentine to Senator McCain"
