Hawaii Island Impeach forum

A big MAHALO to everybody who contributed to last night's impeachment proceedings. 
 
More than 50 people participated in the event.  Many testified for impeachment.  Only one person testified against.  But when the vote came on the five charges (see below) IT WAS UNANIMOUS.  Bush, Cheney, and Condi guilty on all counts.  We will be discussing Thursday night April 26th 7-9PM at Keaau Community Center the possibility of similar Impeachment forums around the island.  The event was very educational and the dramatic presentation with prosecutor, judge, defense attorney, Bush, Cheney and Condi masks on defendants had humor to it as well.  A good combination.
 
The President and Vice President have failed to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution" in the following ways: 1. They have manipulated intelligence and misled the country to justify an immoral, unjust, and unnecessary preemptive war in Iraq. 2. They have directed the government to engage in domestic spying without warrants, in direct contravention of U.S. law. 3. They have conspired to commit the torture of prisoners, in violation of the Federal Torture Act and the Geneva Convention. 4. They have ordered the indefinite detention without legal counsel, without charges and without the opportunity to appear before a civil judicial officer to challenge the detention -- all in violation of U.S. law and the Bill of Rights. 5. They have allowed their corporate sponsors to plunder the treasury.
 
To folks who made signs, helped with set up, donated masks and costumes, did publicity, helped with clean-up, spoke or acted in the production, or who simply were supportive, all that you did is greatly appreciated.  Hopefully our efforts will bear the fruits of peace and justice.

Mahalo, Plenty!!
