from the Facebook group The Movement to Impeach Dick Cheney is Unstoppable:
We’ve reached the impeachment moment for Vice President Dick Cheney. We’ve pushed the cosponsor list for H. Res. 333 up to 14. Rep. John Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has apparently said that if we get 3 more he’ll begin the impeachment proceedings (see http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/24962).
And many Congress Members must be recognizing that there is no other path available. Cheney and Bush have repeatedly refused to comply with subpoenas, ordered former staffers not to comply, and announced that the Justice Department will not enforce contempt citations from Congress. When a special prosecutor attempted to hold this administration accountable, Cheney’s chief of staff obstructed justice, and Cheney persuaded Bush to commute his sentence. There is no course left for Congress but Impeachment.On Monday, July 23, the fifth anniversary of the meeting that produced the Downing Street Minutes, Cindy Sheehan, Ray McGovern, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Ann Wright, Debra Sweet, Dave Lindorff, David Swanson, Jodie Evans, Medea Benjamin, Kevin Zeese, and Tina Richards will lead a march to Chairman Conyers’ office and not leave until he agrees to begin impeachment proceedings. Similar actions are taking place in Michigan, Indiana, and California.
If you cannot be there, you can take two minutes on Monday and do two things: phone Chairman Conyers at 202-225-5126 and ask him to start the impeachment of Dick Cheney; and phone your own Congress Member at 202-224-3121 and ask them to immediately call Conyers’ office to express their support for impeachment. Your Congress Member might be one of the three needed, not just to keep impeachment activists out of jail but to keep this nation from devolving into dictatorship.

ORANGE FOR IMPEACHMENT
Orange has been chosen as the color to signify that you are for impeachment and against the war. If you can, wear orange today in solidarity with those occupying Congressional offices to demand impeachment. And then, starting this Friday, join others around the country each Friday wearing or displaying orange. A groundswell of people wearing orange in their daily lives, assisted and amplified by the voices of prominent people and musicians wearing and promoting orange on TV, radio and on stage at concerts, can break people out of this conundrum where millions are just furious but still paralyzed by the paralysis of the loyal opposition party and by the presidential elections’ anaesthetizing effects.

Go, get busy! And throw on an orange shirt.
