One unalterable fact of the Bush administration is the attempt to establish "unitary executive" powers. Opinions on both sides of the aisle have made references to a constitutional crisis. In response, a growing number of prominent Americans and organizations have been organizing impeachment educational events throughout the country.
Formed in July '07, NEIC expanded from a coalition of impeachment organizations into a network connecting groups across the country. Nationwide impeachment actions and seminars are slated to happen in November and December. The teach-in at Dartmouth follows on the heels of a WCAX television poll that showed Vermonters favoring impeachment of both Bush and Cheney by a two to one margin. The National Lawyers Guild recently voted unanimously on a resolution at their National Convention in Washington DC to impeach President Bush and Vice-President Cheney
A question & answer period follows the panel discussion. This event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcomed to help defray expenses.
