From an email from The Declaration of Peace
Indictment Day Action
Monday, November 10, 2008
United States Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20530
Calling for the indictment of George W. Bush and Richard Cheney
for war crimes.
Participants in this action are seeking a meeting with
Attorney General Mukasey to bring forth an indictment.
If the group is denied, some will be risking arrest.
Participation in different roles is needed.
We have all been awestruck by the Bush-Cheney regime, possibly the most dangerous in U.S. history. We have all marched to protest the criminal excesses of this administration. And we have repeatedly tried to convince our elected officials to take action. However, our pleas for impeachment have been ignored. And now it is October 2008, in the twilight days of the Bush-Cheney administration. This is a situation that demands citizen action before the curtain is drawn on January 20, 2009.
So, the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance is organizing a presence at the Department of Justice on November 10 to demand an indictment of George W. Bush and Richard Cheney for war crimes. While millions favor impeachment, this act of resistance will probably be relatively small. But it is necessary, and those inspired to take part will be motivated by the Nuremberg obligation to speak out when the government violates the law.
Outreach to numerous groups and individuals was made, and agreement was reached on sending a letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey seeking a meeting to urge the attorney general to move forward with an indictment. The letter was sent on September 26. The letter is a tool to challenge a government agency which has been complicit in aiding and abetting the shredding of the Constitution.
On November 10, a delegation will try to enter the DoJ building in order to demand that an indictment process be initiated.
Please indicate your interest in participating in the Indictment Day Action on November 10 by e-mailing Max Obuszewski at email@example.com or Joy First at firstname.lastname@example.org
Feel free to pose any questions.
There will be a planning meeting on Sunday evening November 9, 8:30 p.m. at the Code Pink House at 712 H Street NE, D.C. All who may be risking arrest are expected to attend.
