Deadline: Sign up NOW and go to an Impeach & Remove demonstration on Tues. Dec. 17 –
Updated 12/15/19: The Impeach & Remove mass mobilization demonstrations have been called by the national coalition for Tuesday, December 17, the eve of the historic impeachment vote in the House of Representatives. Most events are called for 5:30 PM local time, RSVP to any you think you may attend, to receive all pertinent info. Read on for more info and background.
On December 10, 2019, the House of Representatives announced
We’ve been busy for months: speaking out, demonstrating, meeting with our Members of Congress, and much more – to get the word out that this lawless criminal must be impeached and removed. Now it’s time to hit the streets again! A broad grassroots coalition of groups spearheaded by Nobody Is Above the Law is mobilizing demonstrations to call for 45’s impeachment and removal, to be held on the eve of the House vote. Join tens of thousands of people in over 500 cities and towns nationwide to demand an end to the dangerous corruption and lawlessness that threatens the core of our democracy. It’s incredibly important for the House to impeach Trump, regardless of whether Senators have the guts to uphold their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The House must officially and publicly find Trump unfit for office and dangerous to the country. Join us and thousands of others nationwide, to take a public stand.
