3 Impeachment Actions in PDX This Week

You can choose 3 ways to get active in PDX this week to impeach Bush & Cheney
If you're for impeaching Bush & Cheney, there are three local actions you can take this week to join the national impeachment movement:

Tonight (Monday) from 4:30 - 6 Bring your impeach sign—water/sun blocker/hat— to the corners of 82d & Burnside and join the DemocracyforAmerica bannering team for the evening rush hour. Stay home if your system can't deal with 90+º heat, of course.

This Wednesday morning at 9, come down to City Hall (5th & Main) Wednesday morning at 9:30 to show support for Randal S. Davis, who'll urge the City Council to pass a resolution to impeach.

Such resolutions have passed in dozens of other cities—including San Francisco. And will be sent as a petition
to the U.S. House of Representatives for January 3 when the new Congress convenes. Petitions to impeach always take precedence over any other bills or business before the House.

Commissioner Erik Sten says he'll put it to the vote if two other Commissioners support it. He'd also like to see a chamber full of impeachment supporters . Heavy support by citizens got resolutions passed in those other cities.

Third action you can take is to call or email These city officials to pass the impeachment resolution:
Sam Adams (503-823-3008/  commissionersam@ci.portland.or.us)

Randy Leonard (503-823-4682/ randy@ci.portland.or.us )

Mayor Tom Potter (503-823-4127 / http://www.portlandonline.com/mayor/index.cfm?c=41652)
