Impeachment Movement Joins Anti-War Movement to March on the Pentagon

On March 17 2007, tens of thousands of people will join together to March on the Pentagon. The country's largest Impeachment group, ImpeachBush.org/VoteToImpeach which has more than 850,000 signers and was founded by Ramsey Clark in January 2003, has announced that it is joining with the anti-war movement and mobilizing for the demonstration. This past Saturday at a significant impeachment strategy session in New York City, other major impeachment and peace groups also decided to make the Saturday March 17, March on the Pentagon a primary focus of a new phase of impeachment initiatives that they will be supporting.

The March on the Pentagon is initiated by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism) which has organized the largest anti-war demonstrations in Washington D.C. and around the country since the start of Bush's endless "war on terrorism." The March 17 demonstration is receiving widespread support from active-duty soldiers, veterans and family members who will be leading the march. An unprecedented student and youth mobilization is underway on campuses. The Muslim and Arab community is organizing around the country. There are already more than 150 cities that are organizing transportation to Washington and more than 40 states. More information is available at MarchOnPentagon.org.

"Impeachment t of government officials for criminal acts and betrayal of the public trust is not a politically partisan matter. The war in Iraq was based on the administration lying to Congress and to the people. It is a war of aggression," said constitutional rights lawyer Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, "The message of impeachment is spreading throughout the United States. Although no member of Congress has introduced articles of impeachment it is becoming an increasingly popular demand at the grassroots."
