Impeachment Rally @ Waxman's LA Office Tuesday, August 7th @ 4 pm

Apparently, my good Congressman has been listening to his constituents! I phoned last week to ask for his support of impeachment and for a new and thorough investigation of the events of 9/11--clearly stating my belief that the evidence suggests an inside job. When asked, his assistant confirmed that others called with the same concerns (about 9/11). I will be wearing my "9/11 was an Inside Job" T-Shirt, with a few friends. Spread the word to everyone you know in Los Angeles!


ACTION ITEM: Tomorrow (i.e. Tuesday, August 7th @ 4 pm), Congressman Waxman has asked LANIC representatives to visit his field office in L.A. to discuss Impeachment and H Res 333. LANIC is asking those who can make it to come early (by 3:30 pm) to participate in a support rally that will officially start at 4 pm! I apologize for the short notice but we just heard today from his legislative staff (Monday, 12 noon).

Tuesday/4pm Rally -- In Los Angeles at Waxman's Offices
8436 West Third Street, Suite 600 (very close to LANIC's Impeachment Center Headquarters -- by La Cienega & 3rd St (Near Beverly Center) Los Angeles, CA 90048 PLEASE BRING PRO-IMPEACHMENT SIGNS, BANNERS, IMPEACH RELATED CLOTHING, ETC!

Please email if you can make it and confirm that you can bring signs/banners/t-shirts. Please also forward this email to all of those inviduals you know who can gather outside of Congressman Waxman's office tomorrow at 4 pm. We'd like to have as many pro-Impeachment supporters outside at 4 pm to show the Congressman the widespread support for Impeachment that exists in Los Angeles (particularly those from his district!). L.A. City Council Outreach Coordinator Ruth Stedman and I will be at the meeting along with Dorothy Reik, Marcy Winograd and several other LANIC representatives. The main action will be the rally outside. Ruth and I are preparing a LANIC Impeachment literature package today for Waxman and for his staff. If anyone has "Must-Read" Impeachment materials for Congressman Waxman, please forward the literature to me by 8 pm tonight and I will review it to see if we can incorporate it into the literature we're providing him.

As of last Wednesday we had 2,231 signatures collected. We will provide Waxman with a bound copy of these handwritten, verifiable Los Angeles citizens' pro-Impeachment signatures. Thank you for all your hard work!
