Sheehan's Delegation to Conyers: Initiate Impeachment Now

[The following was posted at 3:29 p.m. today on democraticunderground.com, live from the delegation led by Cindy Sheehan to Representative John Conyers to demand the impeachment of V.P. Dick Cheney. Conyers is one of the good guys who's been doing the kind of work I think we need done -- e.g., almost single-handedly investigating the irregularities in the 2004 elections. But he is chair of the Judiciary Committee in the House, out of which any impeachment initiative must issue, and he's been quoted as saying he would proceed only if three more Representatives added their support. Let me know if any of this was mentioned in your corporate evening news.]

I am sitting on the floor of a phone booth . . . . Lisa from C-ville is standing in front of it, hoping I will not be noticed.

I have never seen anything like this one, folks. . . .

There are HUNDREDS of people lining the hallway to John Conyers' office. Cindy and a few others are inside, speaking to the staff, we assume. But the scene is incredible -- people have come from all over the country to deliver the message that we cannot tolerate illegal actions and an unConstitutional government.

I will update this as I can . . .

But hello to all from the center of democracy! We are taking it BACK.

Oh -- and CALL!

Phone Chairman Conyers
[see contact info at the end of this post] and ask him to start the impeachment of Dick Cheney; and phone your own Congress Member [see contact info at the end of this post] and ask them to immediately call Conyers' office to express their support for impeachment. Your Congress Member might be one of the three needed, not just to keep impeachment activists out of jail but to keep this nation from devolving into dictatorship.

CALL PELOSI. CALL OTHERS. MAKE A RUCKUS because they are not listening and I'm told it's quiet there!!!

Cindy Sheehan just left John Conyers' office and announced that Rep. Conyers is NOT going to move on impeachment.

The crowd is very upset.

Rev. Yearwood announced that the government has failed the people and the people must act NOW. This needs to be spread everywhere.
