January 4, 2007: Demonstrate in Washington DC as Congress Opens!
The World Can’t Wait organization along with others are calling for a demonstration in Washington, D.C. on January 4, when the U.S. Congress opens. The protest will be held at Upper Senate Park (Delaware & Constitution, just north of the Capitol) starting at 12 noon on Thursday, Jan. 4.
The call for this action — “Bush Must Go! If War Crimes, Torture, and Crimes Against Humanity Are Not Reasons to Impeach, What Is?” — is available online at worldcantwait.org. This call says in part:
“The whole program of the Bush administration must be stopped. If George Bush is allowed to finish out his term, all the destruction and the whole direction he has taken society will be condoned, legitimated and made permanent. We demand Congress investigate and hold accountable the Bush Administration for criminal liability and bring articles of impeachment against the President.”
The endorsers of the call for the Jan. 4 demonstration include:
Cindy Sheehan, Gold Star Families for Peace
Bill Goodman, Center for Constitutional Rights
Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Hip Hop Caucus
The World Can’t Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime
