There will be an Emergency Anti War Convention in Philadelphia on the fourth of July (note the flyer).
The convention will be attended by activist groups who support impeachment, who want to end the war in Iraq and who want a real investigation in what happened in the lead up to September 11, 2001, what has happened since September 11, 2001 and especially want to know exactly what happened on September 11, 2001 and exactly who was responsible. We especially intend on proving who was responsible and incarcerating them as quickly as a jury can find them guilty. If removing them from any political office is part of the process, we plan on doing that as well. We may not know exactly how at this time, but waiting for a complicit Congress is no longer part of the plan.
Our message to them is, despite whatever power they may have, we have the power of the people on our side. Who ever you are, you do not intimidate nor frighten us, unlike the effect you seem to have on members of Congress.
We would appreciate it if you would help us make this convention more than a mere demonstration.
We feel that almost the entirety of our government, which includes all three branches and both parties, is more or less playing poker for the C-Span cameras on a daily basis. Nothing seems important enough to compel members of Congress to engage in tough, fact based debate with the goal of resolving the important issues of our day.
We are still mired in a no win situation in Iraq which is killing members of the American military as well as Iraqi citizens, there has been no truly independent panel created with subpoena power to answer glaring anomalies surrounding the tragedy of September 11, 2001, there has not yet been a serious attempt by The House to send articles of impeachment to The Senate which address the obvious crimes committed by the Cheney/Bush Regime, the leaders of this country are seriously considering creating more death and destruction by preemptively attacking Iran, our nation is about to give way to a "North American Union" which will have more devastating effects upon Americans and the American work force and there are a plethora of domestic issues which Congress is either ignoring or about which they've engaged in fine theatrics.
The last straw, of course, was the hyped up election and election results of November 8, 2006. The so called Democratic Party proved itself to be only the other part of The Corporacracy.
The phrase "take our country back" has been bandied around like a cheap, rolled up pair of socks.
However, without any help forthcoming from those "inside the system", it is, indeed, time for we, the people, to take our country back.
Please read the flyer below as it does a good job of explaining the goal of the Convention and we would be extremely grateful if you helped us get this off the ground.
An invitation to the:
PHILADELPHIA EMERGENCY ANTI-WAR CONVENTION
Independence Center, Philadelphia, PA
JULY 4, 2007, Starting 1 PM
In the spirit of our Declaration of Independence, join activist organizations throughout the country to collaborate and forge common strategies and actions. As our forefathers of this nation did, we too must face tyranny, this time from the collusion of government, big business, media, and religion.
We convene to form a strategic alliance with peace, pro-impeachment, civil liberties, 9/11 Truth, and other groups to develop a comprehensive strategy and implement actions to deal with this emergency.
Together we can eliminate the common root cause of our separate activist concerns. During this time of urgency, petty differences or past transgressions diminish as the need for each other increase, we need each other now. Through this union we can access the only power feared by this corrupt alliance ... the power of community.
