Put Your Name in the Congressional Record in Support of Impeachment

Rep. Dennis Kucinich wants to put the name of everyone who supports Dick Cheney's impeachment in the Congressional Record!

The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress. It is published daily when Congress is in session and is fully searchable.

Every day that Congress is in session, Rep. Kucinich will submit 5 single-spaced pages of names with states, which is the daily limit under House rules. To be included, all you need to do is submit this petition.

Friday July 27: Declare It Now - Wear Orange!

We launched our "Orange Revolution" on Monday with the march from Arlington Cemetary to the office of Rep. John Conyers led by Cindy Sheehan.

Friday July 27 is the start of "Orange Fridays" when we urge impeachment supporters to wear orange and gather in public places, including Honk to Impeach events:

Impeachment supporters are wearing bright orange shirts, bandanas, ribbons and buttons, wrapping trees and cars in orange tape, and holding bright orange signs.

Kickoff events on July 27 are being held across the country in Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York City, Charlotte, Atlanta, Detroit, Kalamazoo, Chicago, Houston, Reno, Walla Walla, Seattle, Bakersfield, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Details here:

Speakers at Friday’s rally in New York City include Cindy Sheehan, Colonel Ann Wright, Jonathan Tasini, Victor Toro, Rev. Billy, and Elaine Brower.

Honk to Impeach

One of the most effective actions you can take is called Honk to Impeach. It works!

Rep. Robert Brady (D., Pa.) just signed onto H Res 333 (that makes 15 Congress Members in support of that bill and 17 in support of impeachment). Brady's district office is just on the other side of Philadelphia City Hall from where a group of citizen activists held a "honk to impeach" event during rush hour on Tuesday, the same day Brady signed the bill. A participant reports: "The honking never ceased - it was one steady stream of noise - the people want it! An idea for others who plan rush hour impeach 'honk fests,' I had on hand pre-printed impeach postcards for people to sign and send to their reps. Most drivers were very eager to take them." Also carry signs that read:

Thanks for the list of impeachment plans, and maybe soon we will see Bush and Cheney in Orange Jumpsuits.

Hey, lots of things happening over there but George is still there! Seems to be a disconnect sadly.

Would a stick of dynamite be the answer?
