Green Party of California delegates at state convention vote to impeach Bush and others for roles in Iraq war, attacks on civil liberties at home

GREEN PARTY OF CALIFORNIA NEWS RELEASE

MOORPARK, Ca. (June 27, 2006) - The Green Party of California General Assembly, meeting here over the weekend at its state convention, overwhelming voted to approve a resolution calling for the impeachment of Pres. George W. Bush, and other members of his administration, for "high crimes and misdemeanors."

Green delegates also endorsed their statewide candidate slate for November, headed by gubernatorial candidate Peter Camejo, and approved two new planks - one strengthening support for "Democratic Unionism" and another calling for an end to "agricultural dumping" of U.S. products that weaken agricultural economies of other countries.

The impeachment resolution calls for impeaching and removing from office of Bush, Vice President Richard B. Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

Most of the reasons cited in the resolution directly involved the war in Iraq, including the "deception" by the Bush Administration employed to start the 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."

Finally, the GPCA added two more counties to its roster, officially recognizing county delegations from San Benito and Kern counties.
