PDA impeachment campaign updates

This is the last of three posts that weren't posted because of a Blogger problem.  The others are posted at
Below is an update I received from the Progressive Democrats of America March 2nd.  I'm re-posting it here since it has many useful links.  Locally, GRIM is planning an NC impeachment conference in Durham next month and the Durham Impeach Bush Cheney Meetup group (which is meeting at the Parkwood Branch Library in Durham on the 14th at 7pm) has a plan to get the Durham City Council to vote on an impeachment resolution and is planning to lobby Senator Elizabeth Dole. 
In related news, there will be a meeting / protest against the War at Price's Chapel Hill office today at 2pm, I believe.
