Impeach supporters join John Nirenberg for the last 5 miles of his historic walk from Boston to DC

Yesterday, we joined John for the final leg of his historic march from Boston to Washington, DC to urge Congress to hold impeachment hearings on Bush and Cheney. It was great meeting John, his partner Allyson and so many other wonderful people who came to the march & rally yesterday. Impeach supporters from many other states as well as the DC area were there. We had a bit of trouble being asked to leave the National Arboretum and some of us were turned away at the Constitution. (this issue is on fire! see links below)

John asked us all to remember that this is not over, being here is just the first part. The second part is carrying this message to congress which he asks us to do and which he intends to do this week and next. (see John’s message below)

From citizen media producers:
Links to blogs, photos/videos and citizen news coverage as we get them will be added here. So far we have:

John’s request of us:

  1. Congratulations John! I can’t tell you how significant your effort is. You have made more press than the 30,000 people who marched in the streets in San Francisco on October 27th, 2007. One man! Good for you and Thank You!

    Not sure if I can post an image from my flickr site, but this is my attempt to reach the world Pelosi holding her oath to protect our constitution and get Impeachment on the Table.

    Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

    The Democrats have in their silence granted a pardon to the President and the Vice President … and future presidents.
