Austin IMPEACH NOW Forum - 07/07/07

Welcome to!

The Austin "Impeach Now" Forum is over, but the Momentum is rippling through Texas!

The Austin "Impeach Now" Forum was held at the First Unitarian-Universalist Church of Austin on the afternoon of Saturday, July 7, 2007 (07/07/07), and it was a roaring success! All four speakers were involved, informed, and interesting; and discussion between the speakers and the 300 people in the audience was spirited and passionate. Even better, after the event had concluded, the hallways of the church were filled with people discussing, debating, buying the speakers' books, and generally showing a huge commitment to the impeachment of both George and Dick.

The event was produced by a coalition of progressive Austin organizations - the Green Party of Texas, the Travis County Green Party, the Austin chapter of CodePink, and the Austin chapter of World Can't Wait.

The list of distinguished speakers included Elaine Brown, Dr. Dennis Loo, Dave Lindorff, and Larry Everest. The forum was moderated by Prof. David Ferris. The event was preceded by music from Daniel Lytle and the glamorous "I Miss America" Pageant by CodePink Austin. It included individual presentations by the four speakers, a panel discussion among the speakers, and the speakers' responses to audience questions.

Although the event was on lucky 07/07/07, we know it's going to take a lot more than luck to impeach George and Dick. With this forum, Austin sends the message to the US House of Representatives, "Impeach 'em NOW!"

  4. Go to website, and sign the petition demanding that the Austin City Council pass a resolution in favor of impeachment.
