For Immediate Release
KUCINICH SEEKS CHENEY IMPEACHMENT; AMERICANS TO RALLY NATIONWIDE ON SATURDAY
NEW YORK, N.Y., April 23, 2007 - Following on today's announcement by Rep.
Dennis Kucinich that he will file Articles of Impeachment against
Vice-President Dick Cheney, Americans across the country will take to the
streets on April 28 to call for the impeachment of both Cheney and Bush.
From Miami, Florida to North Pole, Alaska, more than 100 actions are planned
Jacob Park, National Coordinator of the April 28 actions, said "George Bush
and Dick Cheney lied the nation into an illegal war of aggression, are
spying on millions of innocent Americans, and have authorized the use of
torture. The time has come for all Americans—-particularly our
representatives in Congress—-to decide where they stand. To turn a blind eye to
lying, spying, and torture makes a mockery of our most basic values and the
very notion of democracy."
On April 28, a visit by George Bush to Miami will be greeted with a massive
impeachment rally organized by dozens of local groups. At the California
Democratic Convention in San Diego, hundreds of delegates will defy the
party leadership by bringing an impeachment resolution to the floor.
Thousands of Americans will form "human murals" spelling out "IMPEACH!" with
their bodies at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, Coney Island in New York, the
foot of the Washington monument in Washington, D.C., and other locations.
And elsewhere people will spell it out in myriad other ways ranging from
banners drops on freeway overpasses to a skywriting plane over the New
Orleans Jazzfest to a guerrilla impeachment slideshow on the buildings of
New York City.
The coordination of the April 28 nationwide impeachment actions has relied
heavily on new Web 2.0 internet technologies, including ImpeachSpace.com, a
new social network created by the organizers to build a community around the
issue of impeachment.
