Because Americans Want REAL Change
Date:Fri, 10 Nov 2006 04:38:57 -0500
Dear (Deleted) ,
On Election Day, the American people voted overwhelmingly for change. We are thrilled to congratulate Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid and we fully support Pelosi's 100-hour agenda.But Speaker Pelosi says impeachment is "off the table." How can we let George Bush and Dick Cheney get away with the Constitutional crimes they have committed - and continue to commit?

How can there be real change when Bush and Cheney insist on occupying Iraq forever at incalculable cost to human life and national debt?And how can there be real change when Bush and Cheney insist the "War on Terror" gives them the power to invade Iran whenever they please?And how can there be real change when Bush and Cheney break the law every day through torture and warrantless wiretaps?And how can there be real change when Bush and Cheney nullify every law they don't like with signing statements?

On Saturday, and our progressive allies will launch a nationwide grassroots mobilization for impeachment in Philadelphia near Independence Hall, where the Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. The mobilization is called ImpeachForChange. Our goals include:A grassroots petition drive to collect 1 million signatures at ImpeachForChange.orgForm Impeachment Committees in all 435 Congressional Districts to lobby every Member of Congress by:delivering books & videos on impeachmentcollecting petitions and handwritten letters in front of their District Officesmeeting with every Member to discuss the issues that require impeachment

Transform Political Yard Signs into Impeach Signs
Are there lots of obsolete campaign signs littering your neighborhood? Recycle them!Plan a sign-painting party to transform those signs into patriotic messages for regime change at home that you can put up all around town. Imagine a thousand signs around your city with such messages as "IMPEACH" in giant letters. Or make a series of them with a single word on each: "Lying" "Spying" "Torture" "IMPEACH!" and plant them in a row along a busy street.More on how to make impeachment signs out of election signs:

Glen Ford, who for years edited the brilliant and informative, has launched a new publication: The Black Agenda Report. Already the Black Agenda Report is becoming an invaluable resource for progressives and activists. The cover story in the November 8th issue has a working headline of "Impeach! Impeach! Impeach!" We can expect the same insight and experience to be brought to that issue that was brought to so many political issues over the years by the Black Commentator. Get to know this new publication:
