Veterans for Peace Back Up Congressman Kuchnich: They Have Their Own Impeachment Petition

What a perfect opportunity for a combination punch! Let's help the Vets get into the People's House to meet with Congressman John Conyers. The Vets' impeachment petition is below, along with information about their next convention. There will be a tribute to David Cline and other Vets who have been freed from this life.
Congressman Dennis Kucinich Introduced 35 Articles of Impeachment Against President Bush on Monday Night
TUESDAY EVENING: The Clerk of the House is expected to read the articles of impeachment, which should take about 5 hours, at the conclusion of which Rep. Kucinich will make a motion. Watch C-Span! http://c-span.org
Rep. Robert Wexler is the first to cosponsor and will be on Keith Olbermann today.
Email Your Congress Member - Congress has 72 hours to table it, send it to committee, pass it, or reject it.

Extensive documentation to accompany each article will be posted later today. Watch these websites:
Veterans for Peace members have been trying to meet with Representative John Conyers to deliver an Impeachment petition.
Wednesday, June 11, members of Veterans For Peace will be delivering 22,000 signatures demanding impeachment of President George Bush to Representative John Conyers' office. Representative Conyers, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, has refused to meet with the members of VFP for the past two months. Upon arriving at Representative Conyers' office, members from New York, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio and the District of Columbia have decided to conduct a sit-in until he agrees to meet with them.
In light of Congressman Dennis Kucinich putting forth 35 Articles for Impeachment and reading those Articles on the floor of the House of Representatives last night, 6-09-08...
Call Representative Conyers (202-225-5126), ask that he meet with members of Veterans For Peace and accept the 22,000 signatures that call for the Impeachment of the President.
