GREEN PARTY OF CALIFORNIA NEWS RELEASE
SACRAMENTO, Ca. (April 27, 2007) - Members of the Green Party of California - which approved its own impeachment resolution in 2006 calling for the removal of Pres. George W. Bush, and other members of his administration, for "high crimes and misdemeanors" - endorsed Saturday's nationwide impeachment actions.
Among other actions Greens will be participating in Saturday will be creating the "I" in IMPEACH at the "Beach Impeach" action in San Francisco. The Santa Clara and San Mateo Greens will coordinate that work.
"(Vice-President Richard) Cheney should be impeached as called for by Democrat Dennis Kucinich because it would be due justice for the stooge of the big business and war machine. Cheney's removal would pave the way to impeach Bush," said Shane Que Hee, GPCA Platform Co-Coordinator.
In its 2006 resolution, the GPCA called for the impeachment of Bush, Vice President Richard B. Cheney, then Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, citing the "deception" used by the Bush Administration to start the Iraq war, the use of illegal chemical and biological weapons by the U.S., the targeting of civilians with military weapons, the torture of prisoners and violation of international treaties prohibiting those actions.
The resolution also condemns the increasing attacks on civil liberties in the U.S., specifically citing warrantless searches - including recent revelations of NSA spying on citizens, and the use of "indefinite detentions" of U.S. citizens without the right to a speedy and public trial.
The resolution specifically noted that the Bush Administration used "deliberate deceptions (by) repeatedly, consciously, and with forethought, lying to the American people and the U.S. Congress by providing false and deceptive rationales for an unjustified and illegal war in Iraq."
