AfterDowningStreet: Winter Work Schedule for Spring Peace and Impeachment
Winter Work Schedule for Spring Peace and Impeachment
Submitted by davidswanson on Tue, 2007-01-09 04:24. Activism
The coming weeks and months are our window of opportunity to end the war and impeach Bush and Cheney. Our best moments for action may be improvised in response to changing events. But planning out our schedule will help. You can find local events in your area, or post them yourself for others to sign up and attend at:

Below are listed some selected national events to plan for. A more complete list is at:


Jan. 10: Bush to announce escalation of occupation of Iraq

Jan 11: Events all over the United States and a Congressional Call-In Day to close Guantanamo.

Jan 11: Events in Washington D.C. to close Guantanamo, including a 10:00 a.m. rally in Upper Senate Park; a 10:30 a.m. press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court with Witness Against Torture, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and Amnesty USA; a march in orange prisoner jumpsuits to federal court; nonviolent civil disobedience and a rally in front of court; a 6:30 p.m. teach-in at Georgetown Law School; plus lobbying of Congress.

Jan. 11: Events Across the Country to Oppose Escalation of Iraq Occupation: Join the Nationwide Peace Surge! Join with Progressive Democrats of America, United for Peace & Justice, CodePink, TrueMajority, Working Assets, U.S. Labor Against War, Peace Action, Mainstreet Moms, NOW, WAND, Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, Faithful America, United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society, Physicians for Social Responsibility, DC for Democracy, Sojourners, and many more. Volunteers will host actions across the country within 24 hours of the Presidents speech with a simple message: "America says NO more troops in Iraq!" Of course, America says much more than that! We say to Congress: Cut off the money for war, bring the troops home, and hold Bush and Cheney accountable! Take that message to these events! Find an Event in Your Area:

Jan 11: 6:00-7:00 p.m. Antiwar Demonstration across from the White House in Lafayette Square Park led by DC for Democracy.
