Beach Impeach sends powerful message to congress

Excerpt
hundreds gather on beach in san francisco to spell out Impeach now.The kaleidoscopic colors fit in well to the festive, yet serious, Beach Impeach event organized by San Francisco activist Brad Newsham.

This gathering was just one of many impeachment events held around the nation and world by individuals and organizations demanding that President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney be impeached for a variety of crimes ranging from 9/11, lying to start a war, war profiteering, illegal wiretapping and torture.

This was Newsham’s second Beach Impeach event with the first one held on January 6 of this year. This time around there was enough people signed up to add the empathic “NOW!” to the message.

Asked why he felt it was necessary to do another event, Newsham said, “After January’s Beach Impeach, I felt like I had my finger stuck in a live electrical socket. There was such a flood of great energy unleashed by that event and pouring right through me — and literally hundreds of charged-up people asking me, ‘What are we going to do next?'”

“I’d merely been aiming to create at least just ONE compelling visual to go along with all the words and chatter and impeachment bluster — but once all those great visuals came from the January event, I suddenly felt responsible. And now people seemed to think I knew what I was doing — I don’t, by the way — but I was almost FORCED to move forward. And yesterday’s event is what came out of my moving forward.

“This will all have been worth all the time and effort and money, if this gets a message to our leaders, if we get an impeachment hearing, and if we get our country back from the people who have steered us off in these crazy directions we’ve gone since Bush became president,” continued Newsham.

Various activists groups filled individual letters in the words with colors, including Code Pink made the letter “C” a lovely shade a pink, and World Can’t Wait who made the exclamation point a brilliant, shimmering orange.

“We filled the exclamation point with 50 people in orange jumpsuits and black hoods to represent the people who are being held and tortured in Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, said Don Spark, a local World Can’t Wait organizer who was politely reminding people on the bullhorn to get into the outlined letters, “Please, no wandering pixels on the beach!” he jokingly admonished.

There were also many people in black with t-shirts and signs showing support for the 9/11 Truth Movement.

    Nice to know that S.F. has that many people that are sheep. Just follow what the media says and suck it up. HL your claims keep getting more and more lame. You can’t prove what you claim. You use a book from a guy who has no clue. Just like William Cooper who wrote Behold a Pale Horse. A book that makes claims about FEMA taking over towns and the government declaring Marshel Law and starting detention camps in 2000. And look how much of it was true. NONE and yet people swore that it was all true. This is just another guy who found a way to make a good deal of money because people like conspiracys so they’ll by it. The sad part is there are a lot of people like HL who will believe it.

    So you read the book then? No? So you have no idea what is in it do you? No? that’s what I thought.

  3. Bill Says:

    What’s wrong HL you don’t want people to know that I did read Behold a Pale Horse or the fact that this guy is just trying to sell something like Cooper did that never was true to begin with.

    Oh yeah and as for your Impeachment why is it that Kucinich can’t get anyone to help sponser that bill for Impeachment HL.
    It wouldn’t be that they don’t have anything to Impeach him on because according to you and all the other Libs there are a lot of things that they can Impeach him on. So tell me HL why is it that Kucinich can’t get any help.
    Guess they don’t have as much as you think on Bush or Cheney. That’s alright because Kucinich doesn’t have a chance of being the Democrat nominee any way they have aready decided it is going to be Hillary.
