On Thursday, January 25, Veterans For Peace began Operation Support and Defend the Constitution:
To demand congress follow the will of the people, de-fund the war, and use the money to Support Our Troops, Bring Them Home Now!
To restate our oath of service as veterans to support and defend the Constitution.
To remind Congress that they took a similar oath, thus they have a responsibility to hold in check the powers of the Executive. Tell Congress they are a branch of our government, not an arm of the President.
To work to force the President to stop illegal acts such as unwarranted surveillance and torture, and to repeal laws that are in violation of the Constitution, such as the Military Commissions Act.
To invite veterans across the nation to unite with us in our effort to defend and support the Constitution by advocating for the impeachment of President George Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney.
Stand with us from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., January 26-28, at Terry Schrunck Plaza, SW 3rd Ave., Portland (across from the Fedral building).
