Four impeachment events this week

There are four opportunities to push for impeaching Bush and Cheney this week. The Grass Roots Impeachment Movement's third town meeting on impeachment was tonight in Hillsborough (sorry about the late notice). A debate between Price and pro-impeachment Democratic challenger Kent Kanoy (his campaign site is www.kanoy4congress.org) or a town meeting is being organized in Fearrington in Chatham County and we are organizing a first Durham town meeting.

TUE 3/21. NOW Is the Time To Talk Impeachment.

Orange County Courthouse, 106 E Margaret Ln, Hillsborough Public Discussion. Kay Kelley Mersereau, MC, Civil Rights Attorney Al McSurely, Michelle A. Laws - Chapel Hill Native, retired IBM’er Richard O. Houpana, ,Music by the Raging Grannies, & John Heuer…Sponsored by: Orange County Peace Coalition (OCPC) Questions/comments- Wes Hare, co-chair OCPC (929-3316, jhhare at earthlink dot net) or michael_pollock at yahoo dot com.

Price is holding two town meetings this week to hear from his constituents. The Cary meeting was this evening (but I might be wrong about the date) 7-8:30pm at the Cary Town Hall and the other is on the 23rd, at the same time, at Durham's Southern High School. More information is probably on Price's website.

Also, don't forget to sport something orange on Fridays for impeachment (a new campaign is starting up, see orangetoimpeach.blogspot.com for more information)!

A quick update

The impeachment town meeting at the Chapel Hill Town Hall February 28th went well and had about 150 participants. There were some issues about the format to improve for next time. Kent Kanoy, the pro-impeachment challenger to Price, attended. The weekend before Price released the letter to Bush he co-sponsored with Rep. Loefgren. The letter asked for a special counsel to investigate the legality of the NSA wiretapping. It was almost immediately rejected, and the Administration said the source of the leak should be the object of investigation. That letter was the main topic at the second meeting we had with Price (I'll post details about that and possibly the letter in question later on).

There will be a town meeting in Hillsborough March 21st at 7pm. We are trying to set up a meeting in downtown Durham for April. Possibly impeachment could be part of International Workers' Day/May Day events this year.

There might be a plannning meeting soon, possibly in Cary.

We might get a proper website soon. In the meantime, David Price Watch's impeachment section might be opened soon (that website is www.davidpricewatch.org).

A side project is a discussion of setting a day when people can wear a certain color or symbol for impeachment every week.
