Event Description:

Come join us in impeaching Bush, Cheney, Rice, Gonzales, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, et. al.

Some of the factors we have discussed at past meetings include:

1.    It is important to put forth the message to subsequent administrations that the reason for this impeachment is war.  (Not sex scandals, hotel burglaries, etc.)    Solutions for lasting peace require that our public servants understand that Americans do not tolerate war.

2.    Impeachment efforts can work hand in hand with other groups toward this common goal.

3.    There is a need for fundraising (see the Impeachment Fiesta committee meetings in this calendar) and for public education on the need for impeachment.

For Q's about this meeting, call Charles Mauch,    713-432-1277.    escramble('chasMauch','aol.com');

Spread the word and come to the free screening of China Blue 7 p.m. Saturday, March 3, 1827 W. Alabama, west of Woodhead (The Havens Center). China Blue, 2006, 88 mins Directed by Micha X. Peled Saturday, March 3, 7:00pm Free and Open to the Public Houston Institute for Culture Havens Center 1827 W. Alabama Street Houston, Texas 77098 http://www.houstonculture.org/film Summary: CHINA BLUE takes us on a poignant journey inside a blue-jeans factory, where the working conditions Jasmine and her teenage friends must endure are harsh beyond imagination. They are also unlawful by international standards, and tensions in the factory are running high. So when the factory owner strikes a deal with a Western client and demands around-the-clock production to meet the deadline, a confrontation becomes inevitable. Shot clandestinely in China, under difficult conditions, this is a deep-access account of what both China and the international retail companies don’t want us to see - how the clothes we buy are actually made.
