And here, because I embedded the info in a comment:
PERMITS OBTAINED FOR SEPTEMBER 24!
TENS OF THOUSANDS OF IMPEACHMENT SUPPORTERS TO SURROUND WHITE HOUSE
Legal permits have now been obtained on both sides of the White House for the mass demonstration on September 24. This will allow tens of thousands of supporters of the impeachment of George W. Bush to join with the antiwar movement and create a sea of protestors [sic] to surround the White House.
September 24 will be a day to bring your family, your parents, grandparents and children, and as many neighbors and friends as possible together with thousands of others in the the ImpeachBush movement’s most powerful display yet. It will be an opportunity to exercise your First Amendment right to demand that Bush, Cheney and other high officials be held accountable for their criminal conduct.
As we reported last week, recent polls show a dramatic spike in support for impeachment. According to most recent Zogby Poll, 42% of voters – 25% of whom consider themselves Republicans – would support impeachment if Bush lied about Iraq. The tide is clearly turning, but we need to work with ever-greater vigor.
ImpeachBush.org/VoteToImpeach is launching a massive advertising and publicity campaign to promote the September 24 Impeachment contingent at the White House demonstration. We will take out newspaper ads, radio spots, targeted media outreach, and print hundreds of thousands of leaflets, stickers, posters, lawn signs and other outreach materials.
The impeachment campaign will use the information from the Downing Street memos and other known sources that prove the Bush administration engaged in a pattern of lies and deceit to mislead Congress and the people.
We are asking everyone to make a donation to help in the advertising and publicity campaign. This is a huge grassroots effort. We depend on the people who believe in impeachment to fund this historic campaign.
To make a contribution, access the online donation form and the secure server, where you can also get information to write a check: [Dead link]
More than 500,000 people have voted to impeach at the web site VoteToImpeach.org [Dead link]. This has been a remarkable exercise in grassroots democracy. Let’s double that number in the months ahead. We can do it. Each day brings a larger section of the population to the same conclusion: the Bush administration lied. Each day more and more people become outraged at the spiraling death toll in Iraq. Each day, angry and outraged people demand that the elected officials of this country uphold the constitution and use the mechanism of impeachment to hold high officials accountable for their High Crimes and Misdemeanors. We can’t wait for the politicians – the people must act now to create a firestorm of support for impeachment. If you know someone or a few people who would also vote to impeach, encourage them to visit VoteToImpeach.org to cast their ballot.
