Gandhi Peace Brigade/ Conyers Threatens Impeachment

Dear Friends,

Leslie and Ellen found out about Chairman John Conyers' letter threatening Bush with Impeachment if he attacks Iran during one of the "National Conversation on Impeachment" meetings. According to the Chairman, he planned to circulate the letter shortly. When Leslie and Ellen did a follow-up two weeks later, they discovered the letter had been stalled. They talked to Judiciary Committee staff, made some inquiries and pushed the issue with some other progressive representatives, including Lynn Woolsey. Apparently Chairman Conyers also applied a little friendly persuasion because the letter is again on its way to the President.

The letter needs more co-signers ... a larger number will send a stronger message that WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN ATTACKING IRAN! Please call your Congress Member today (202-224-3121) and ask them to co-sign this letter.

Here's the letter:

Peace and Freedom,

Jes & Leslie

"There is considerable speculation and buzz in Washington today suggesting that the National Security Council has agreed in principle to proceed with plans to attack an Iranian al-Quds-run camp that is believed to be training Iraqi militants. The camp that will be targeted is one of several located near Tehran."

Don't Bomb Iran!
