Anti-War Activist to Demand Impeachment of Bush/Cheney, Will Announce Candidacy Against Speaker Pelosi
Who: Peace Mom Cindy Sheehan, Iraq War Vets, Constitution Scholars, local activists, citizens from every demographic, musicians, poets, and YOU
What: Press Conference and Rally, discussing the High Crimes and Misdemeanors Bush & Cheney have committed while trashing the 1st, 4th, 6th, & 8th Amendments of our Constitution.
Where: Near the Center Door of the Visitors Center, between Independence Hall and the Constitution Center. Between 5th & 6th Streets, North of Market Street.
When: Tuesday, July 24th, 1:30 to 3:30 pm
Why: Bill Perry, Executive Director of Delaware Valley Veterans For America, notes "Our Founding Fathers feared concentrated power. To prevent the abuses of a King, or similar despot, they formed THREE co-equal branches of Government. The Executive Branch now ignores the Legislative Branch. The Legislative Branch is our 'Peoples Branch ' . We are being ignored" !
Impeachment is MANDATORY for high crimes & misdemeanors.
Article II, Section 4 of our Constitution reads:
"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, High Crimes and Misdemeanors." Our Constitution says "SHALL"----not "MAY"
Perry states "I took an Oath to protect and defend our Constitution. The same Oath everybody represented by one of these Tombstones took. We were all willing to stand between a bullet, and our Constitution. This Oath NEVER expires. It's the same Oath our Commander-in-Chief took.
He has trashed the Constitution. It's the same Oath our Speaker of the House took. She refuses to do her Constitutional duty. All of us gathering here demand our Constitution be honored, not trashed."
A consortium of Veterans groups erect a stunning visual display of faux Tombstones numerous times during each year, representing the Human Cost of our War on Iraq.
The Tombstones, erected in rows, in a likeness of Arlington Cemetery, evoke stunned silence, and intense respect for all the lives lost. The juxtaposition of Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, and George Washington ' s Slave Quarters, all within a stones throw of Cindy ' s Caravan & the Tombstone Display bring home the 2 Billion Dollar per week Crimes and Sins of Bush~Cheney mob.

Six hours after Ms Sheehan plans to announce her campaign for the 8th District California House Seat, v. Nancy Pelosi, in Washington, DC, Cindy will be available for In Depth interviews, here in Philly. She will explain the Constitutional Duty to replace Speaker Pelosi.
Speaker Pelosi ' s refusal to put IMPEACHMENT on the table is in direct contradiction of her highly progressive 8th District 's Pro-Peace wishes.
Ms Sheehan has received hundreds of offers from politically savvy operatives, offering free, dedicated, and determined volunteers for her campaign, v. Pelosi.
These interviews can have Independence Hall, Tombstone Display, Liberty Bell, etc., backdrops.
Live Interviews for the 5 to 7 pm news cycle, and all the evening Talking Head Cable shows can be scheduled through:
