April 15-22: Week of Boycotts, Rallies For Impeachment

by Solari/NotBuyingIt Monday, Feb. 19, 2007 at 5:37 PM

Please add this to your front page and calendar, and consider taking part in this unprecedented week of outage and action against the unelected Neo-Fascists in DC, and those cowards in power who have betrayed us all by not stopping them. Enough of this Madness, already! Let's get it done, and make history at the same time.

National Boycott To Impeach for Peace and Justice



Tax Day (April 15) 'til Earth Day (April 22)



January 1, 2007 - A national coaltion of citizens, including war veterans, distinguished academics, students, journalists, artists, and elected officials have joined with us to call for a nationwide boycott of all consumer activity, for one week in April..

The organizers of the boycott have recognized the fact, that our elected representatives have been unwilling to move forward on the public's overwhelming demands for impeachment and an end to the war in Iraq.

This boycott is a way of unifying the opposition to the Bush Administration; and according to Dr. Peter Phillips, who was the first to propose the idea in December, "could well be the straw that broke the camel's back".

The boycott has been called in response to the statement by the new Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi, that the issue of impeachment was "off the table".



One of the leading researchers into the agenda and actions of the Bush Administration, Dr. Peter Phillips, the Director of Project Censored at Sonoma State University, proposed a new tactic in the ongoing campaign to hold the administration, their neo-conservative backers, spin doctors, consultants and henchmen accountable.

It is the belief of the organizers that this Administration must be held to task for the host of charges that have been levied against them. Dr.Phillips, a professor of Sociology, has spent his professional career investigating the origins and purposes of the "Power Elite" in general, and neo-conservatives in particular.

Phillips struck upon the use of a boycott as a means to draw together all of those who oppose this administration and their policies. We can not simply rely on the work of progressive activists. We must bring together all citizens who feel strongly that crimes have been committed and an accounting is due.

A boycott is simply a form of non-violent resistance. By simuntaneously withdrawing our support from the economy, millions of people can have a dramatic impact on the policies of individual corporations and

even national governments. In 1990, ACT-UP staged a boycott of Phillip Morris that resulted in providing millions of dollars for AIDS` research.

In 1994, a boycott waged against Shell Oil, Kellog's and Coca Cola, helped to increase the momentum of the anti-apartheid movement. In 1995, the International Peace Bureau called for a boycott of all French products in oppositioon to nuclear testing.

The French wine industry was especially hard hit and the threat of "economic disruption" spurred President Chirac to sign the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. National polls now show that well over half of ALL Americans believe that this administration should be impeached. A much higher percentage want to see this war end and virtually everyone wants to know the truth behind the events of the last 7 years.

What the people want, and what they get, can be two entirely different things if left up to the consideration of career politicians.

The marches, books, movies, lectures and petitions all speak directly to the politicians...and they aren't listening. So let's put pressure on the people they do listen to 24 hours a day,365 days a year.

The boycott provides us with a way to send a wake-up call to the corporate backers of our political leaders. America, holding back on our spending for even one week will show the corporate powers that the people are serious, we are determined and "We're not buying it anymore". To that end, we are building a network of individuals and organizations from coast to coast and around the world to support this action.

By uniting the work of so many millions of people into a single week of protest in which we make sure that the money talks loud and clear, we can give fair warning to our representatives that the time for truth has come, justice is demanded and a full accounting is expected from Washington and Wall Street.
