Cindy Sheehan and her Campaign Staff to Join Activists at Nationwide Impeachment/Pro-Peace Protest at New Year's Rose Parade (see www.BCImpeach.com - Tab #10 for details)
"This administration has shredded Constitutional protections and is now apparently planning another illegal military strike, this time to bomb Iran," says Cynthia Mather, a spokesperson for LANIC. "The consequences of such an assault on global well-being and security would be catastrophic," she said. "Congress is obligated to act before it is too late. But the Democrats are not making any move to stop it, so impeachment is our only recourse."
Numbers of protestors and demonstrators from the various groups could be in the hundreds or in the thousands, said Peter Thottam, Executive Director of LANIC. "Cindy Sheehan as well as many noted impeachment and antiwar activists from across the USA have confirmed their attendance at the Rose Parade i Pasadena on 01/01/08. We expect this to be an unprecedented national day of impeachment visibility, with folks joining from all parts of the country. It is hard to gauge how many will show up, but according to the latest MSNBC poll, of 584,000 people asked if they thought Bush had committed impeachable offenses, 89 per cent said yes! There is a tremendous level of anger and frustration out there. I doubt if our politicians in Washington D.C. have any idea just how much."
