Report on Charlotte Impeachment Day Rally

Charlotte, NC
The People Say Impeach Bush & Cheney NOW

by David Dixon

Some 25 people gathered at a busy intersection near Rep. Sue Myrick's office in the upscale Southpark area of Charlotte calling for the impeachment of President Bush & Vice President Cheney.

There was an overwhelming amount of support from passersby honking in response to a "Honk to Impeach Bush & Cheney" sign. It was incredible with the whole area being filled with honking horns and cheers of support at times throughout the rally. Almost every single person showed suppor by smiling, waving and flashing peace signs & raised fists. Even little kids were flashing peace signs at us.

We had the huge, bright pink CODEPINK "Impeach to Support Our Troops" banner covering a corner of the intersection. In addition to "Impeach Bush & Cheney Signs", others said "Impeach for Peace", one read "Impeach or Get 1776 Again" (referring to the founding revolution) and many more.

The demonstration was part of the April 28 National Impeachment Day actions (see It was called for in Charlotte by Action Center For Justice with participation from CODEPINK Charlotte, Charlotte Coalition For Peace & Justice, & the Islamic Political Party of America.

The event was ignored by the press, except for the local Fox affiliate, even though they were notified twice about the event.

Impeachment actions will continue in Charlotte with an upcoming Impeachment Teach-In featuring a leader of the national impeachment movement & a Mass Regional Rally featuring Gold Star Families For Peace, Iraq Vetarans Against The War, Veterans For Peace, World Can't Wait, Troops Out Now Coalition, national & regional Impeachment Movement leaders, & many others that will kick off the Charlotte Impeachment Summer Campaign.
