Is impeachment really too divisive for Congress to tackle? Isn't it just a political diversion from the real work that needs to be done? Or is impeachment an essential constitutional remedy whose time has come? What damage can be done before January 2009, and what happens if this administration is not held accountable? Peter Phillips will address the question of impeachment and the role that only we the people can play in reversing the disastrous course of this regime.
Peter Phillips is professor of sociology at Sonoma State University and director of Project Censored. He is the co-editor with Dennis Loo of Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush and Cheney . Dr. Phillips' book Censored: Media Democracy in Action is now in its tenth edition. Both are published by Seven Stories Press.
This event is sponsored by Citizens for Transparency in Government and the Chicago Chapter of World Can't Wait - Drive Out the Bush Regime.

Saturday: Protest at Blackwater in Illinois
Protest at the gates of the Blackwater Corporation's new training facility in JoDavies County, near Galena, Illinois. Blackwater Corporation employs private armies throughout the world, including Iraq, Afghanistan and in the aftermath of Katrina. Investigative reporter and author Jeremy Scahill describes Blackwater as "a politically connected private army” that “has in effect declared its forces above the law" and has won nearly $1 billion in noncovert government contracts, many of them no-bid arrangements. Information about the protest and how to get there: www.noprivatearmies.org and www.ilcpj.org
