VIDEO: David Swanson in Portland 1.6.10 "Impeach Judge ByBee"

Activist and book author David Swanson stopped in Portland for an hour talk at Powell's Books which I documented in this 58 min video
1.6.10 Portland Oregon Book Tour
1.6.10 Portland Oregon Book Tour
David spoke to the informed crowd about supporting the call for impeachment of not only Bush & Cheney, but also for the arrest and impeachment of Judge ByBee who sits on th 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. (The Torture Memo-Writing Judge)

David gave an encouraging talk to a crowded room in Powell's Books on 1.6.10. Offering positive encouraging ideas on how to block the war money funding in the house and to stand up to this continued use and acceptance of torture by our government.

He was positive in refusing to think we the people are powerless to do something to make change. David is not one to say just let them get away with it, he is encouraging we the citizens to stand (or sit) in civil non-violent direct actions to demand justice ...and force the media to cover the issues of how the US is allowing and using torture by our continued "killing for peace"

The last 30 minutes is Q & A

"People fought against slavery their whole lives.. Solidarity is good for your health.
We don't have a moral choice. If civilization should go down, we should go down fighting..

The right-wing is outrageously over-represented on TV..."
