More Anti-war/Pro-impeachment Rallies Coming Up

Maybe Congress is at an impasse on the Iraq War with the White House and there are only a few voices talking about impeachment, but that doesn’t seem to describe what is happening in Colorado.

Please read on….Vice President Dick Cheney is making a quick visit to Denver today on a beautiful Thursday afternoon at 5 pm to speak at a Republican fundraiser. He won’t go unnoticed by the Left.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketThe Colorado Impeach Coalition is organizing an anti-Bush/Cheney and anti-war rally at the corner of the 16th Ave Mall and Broadway.

Presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama’s Colorado organization is planning anti-war rallies next Tuesday, Oct. 2 with events in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

The “Rallies to Turn the Page in Iraq” recognize a 2002 speech that Obama gave to warn that military action against Iraq could lead to “a U.S. occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.” 

Ten days later, on October 11, 2002, the US Senate voted to give the President authorization to go to war in Iraq.

No doubt, there will be more protests planned in Colorado to mark that 5th anniversary date.
