Huntington Beach Protestors Attend City Hall City Council Meetings to Urge Impeachment of the President of the United States (George Bush)



Huntington Beach, Calif.

 

Impeach George Bush, was the chant from a group of protestors holding signs in front of the Huntington Beach City Hall and City Council Chambers before a City Council Meeting on Monday night. They kept coming, week after week, urging the City Council to help the cause to impeach the president.  Some council members have stated that they are not interested.  As the rally urges Bush impeachment, a coalition of groups has previously held rallies in Huntington Beach supporting the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney.

 Catholic Workers, Green Party of Orange County, OC Peace Action and sign-toting protesters met at the Huntington Beach Pier, across the street from the district office of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach above Jack's Surfshop on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street.

Individual members of the Huntington Beach City Council spoke recently on record. Council member Keith Bohr said that city government was not the appropriate place to tackle such issues.  And Council member Don Hansen said that he would not support the cause.

Impeachment Center holds that Bush and Cheney abused their powers of office by using information they knew to be false as a justification for invasion of Iraq, condoning and authorizing the torture of prisons of war and rendering detainees to foreign countries known to torture, as well as authorizing warrant-less wiretaps on U.S. citizens for more than five years. The effort continues to be coordinated through the National Impeachment Center in Los Angeles.
