Here the call for the demonstration:

Demonstrate in Washington DC as Congress opens!

The whole program of the Bush administration must be stopped. If George Bush is allowed to finish out his term, all the destruction and the whole direction he has taken society will be condoned, legitimated and made permanent. We demand Congress investigate and hold accountable the Bush Administration for criminal liability and bring articles of impeachment against the President.
Generations from now people will ask what did the people of this country do when they knew their government was committing war crimes: launching a war based on the unlawful doctrine of “preventive” war; indiscriminately using cluster bombs, depleted uranium and chemical weapons against civilians; and carrying out an illegal occupation? What will you say when they ask why a President who decided he could order torture with impunity stayed in office?Will your answer be that we did nothing because Congress refused to act, counseling governing from the center and working with the President and seeking unity and common ground with war criminals, religious fanatics and fascists?Your government, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly immoral and illegitimate war in Iraq – with Iran now in its sights.Your government is openly torturing people. In violation of international law, with the Military Commissions Act of 2006, it has made torture legal and granted itself immunity from criminal prosecution.Your government is creating a police state – obliterating basic constitutional protections, such as the right to habeas corpus, the right to privacy and the right to dissent.For the war to end now, for torture to stop, to restore rights stolen, we the people must act. No one will do this for us. That which you do not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn – or be forced – to accept. We can and must create a political situation where the Bush regime’s whole program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed.
