San Diego Impeachment Saturday

On Saturday, April 28, 2007 Impeachment Actions were taken all over America by patriotic citizens. Here, in San Diego County, concerned citizen activists gathered at Torrey Pines State Beach in La Jolla for Beach Impeach. Everyone showed up with blankets, towels, backpacks, coolers, and of course signs that read IMPEACH. Those who attended laid down on the beach to form each of the seven letters of the word impeach. An aerial photo was to have been taken but a low cloud cover prevented the plane from flying over. The event, however, was a success with approximately two hundred people in attendance.

A first a few here and there....

Soon to be followed by many more.... Here are the letters I, M, and part of P. My husband, son, two family friends and I were proud to lend our bodies to the letter M.

Then it was on to The San Diego Convention Center downtown where the California Democratic Party Convention was taking place. Local activists from several different organizations came together at the door of the Convention center to demonstrate and lobby for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. Members of the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice, Veterans for Peace, the North County Coalition for Peace and Justice, Military Families Speak Out, and the Progressive Democrats of America were on hand along with many, many others who want to see the President and the Vice President removed from office.

Speaking appearances at the convention on Saturday were made by Democratic Presidential candidates Clinton, Dodd, Obama, and Kucinich. Speaker Pelosi, also present, spoke to the delegates as well.

A crowd of us were standing near the door holding our signs for about an hour and a half. Many of the delegates who were going in and out, gave us thumbs up, flashed peace signs, waved, and even cheered. It was exciting!

Watching both the delegates and the demonstrators, I was struck by how those present were a true representation of California's multicultural population. People of all ages, ethnicities, and
economic brackets came together for the California Democratic Party Convention. I was also glad to see a large number of disabled delegates among the convention attendees and demonstrators. Everyone was included - everyone had a voice.

The Bush Chain Gang participated while the crowd chanted "Jail to the Chief!"

A resolution calling for Congress to investigate the actions of President Bush and Vice President Cheney and to take appropriate action including impeachment was introduced Saturday afternoon. It was just about 6:00 P.M. when one of the delegates came out of the door and tapped me on the shoulder. She wanted to tell me that the impeachment resolution had been overwhelmingly approved for advancement to the final vote on Sunday. Many more delegates came out and a loud cheer went up as they explained that the language in the resolution was strong including the words criminal and war crimes. It was a thrilling moment - Democracy at Work!

Sunday, the California Democratic Party endorsed a resolution to withdraw our troops from Iraq and the resolution described above.

Impeachment is on the table in California!

Thank You, California Delegates!!!

It's time for Bush to trade his "Stars and Stripes" power suit for a bars and stripes jumpsuit - he's been wrapped in our flag for too long! Wave Bye-bye, George...

The whole world hates George Bush's Amerika and sees American democracy as a hypocritical illusion. The impeachment of George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney would demonstrate to our global neighbors that we, the American people, do not tolerate leaders who abuse power, torture, murder, and steal. We would be leading by example toward healing for us all.

Impeachment - a positive foreign policy gesture!

Hi Peter, I'm glad I had a chance to meet you at Beach Impeach. It is important for activists to get together and make connections for support and political action. Beach Impeach was a great event for building the anti-war peace movement. Some people who were just strolling down the beach joined in to fill out letters!

The day ended on such a positive note. Yep, I agree, the impeach resolution was quite an accomplishment!

I know that you are always on the job, working for Peace. I am inspired by what you and my other brothers are doing to end this war and promote healing.

Ken...How have you been? It would have been great if you would have been able to attend the events on April 28th...I have yet to be able to meet any of my fellow bloggers.

The new site design was done by Se7en, the gentleman who posted right below you. He runs "Blogs Gone Wild!".I shopped around for a long time and his work was by far the best that I saw. I'm real happy with the results.

Thanks. The tide is turning. I would love nothing better than to see those two scum buckets go... all the way to jail! Evict them - Convict them!

Awesome post and pics! I'm glad you made it down to Beach Impeach in San Diego...and to the convention center as well. I'm still high from the weekend...

Looks like we have been at a lot of the same events lately...

Hi Bluegrrrrl,
Yea, I think our paths have crossed indeed. I dropped in on your blog and enjoyed both films. Small World - You even have a photo of our stuff... the gold towel with the two signs. I made the signs and my husband and I carried them later on at the convention center. I'm still floating, too. It was an incredible experience.

I for one would like to see them both impeached, then extradited to the Hague to stand trial for their War Crimes.

I have one fear though. It is the Military Commissions Act. All those Republican Fascist Nazi's along with some Democrats gave this insane madman the right to declare anyone, including American Citizens enemy combatants.

He could legally have those who attempt to impeach him arrested, detained with no rights to a court hearing as they also stripped out the Writ of Habeas Corpus from the Constitution.

These are truly evil men and I've also likened them to Nazi Germany because all their actions mimic what Hitler did as he rose to power.

In fact I've often thought of Der Fuehrer Bush as the surrogate son of Adolph. Same policies, same destructive ends.

Very good post kitchen window woman.

God Bless

Thank you for stopping long enough to read.
It is amazing what has happened to this country since George W. Bush was appointed president. He and Cheney have targeted the Constitution and the rest of the world in their quest for a global empire. Both are very sick men. I think we should identify their personality types (those drawn to absolute power - Hitler, etc)and bar any candidates who share those traits from running for public office. These kinds of sick individuals are threaten our democratic society. They need treatment not power.

We must IMPEACH them both.

Let's Talk...
Thank you. I am glad you liked the Impeach Day piece. As I understand it there will be many more impeachment events during the summer. This one, however, was important because of the Calif. State Democrat's convention. Pelosi knows for damn sure now that we want impeachment on the table!

If we all keep working toward impeachment maybe we can turn it into a reality. Bush and Cheney have made on hell of a mess of America. When we get them out of there we will have a huge clean-up and restoration on on hands. I've got my mop, bucket, and sponge all ready to go!
