On the morning of Friday, 8-17-07, about 50 people from the Los Angeles Impeachment Center (www.bcimpeach.com) stormed the chamber of the LA City Council to demand that the Council fulfill their oath to the Constitution by introducing and passing a resolution in support of impeaching George W. Bush and Richard Bruce Cheney. After much disciplined and strategic organizing by people like dedicated activist Peter Thottam and many other organizers and engaged citizens, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl helped open the space for a half hour discussion of why impeachment IS a local issue. Many people made powerful points about the ethical imperative of stepping up and doing something during a time of moral crisis. Watch the two videos @ the end of this post to get a flavor of how it went down.
