Stop the WAR - MARCH San Francisco Jan.27, 2007

Rally and March to End the War in Iraq
THE BIG ONE
Powell and Market Streets to Pier 31 on the Embarcadero

San Francisco
Over 3,000 dead American soldiers, hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis. It's time to put a stop to the war machine. Millions of people voted to get the Republicans out and end the war, but we can't leave it up to the Democrats to do the only reasonable thing: BRING ALL THE TROOPS HOME NOW FROM IRAQ!
President Bush just announced his intent to escalate the number of troops in Iraq by over 20,000 more troops.
It's time to get the anti-war movement back in the streets! On January 27, hundreds of thousands of people marched in Washington, DC to demand an end to the war. Tens of thousands marched in San Francisco.
 Thousands joined to show Bush and the new Democratic Congress that the anti-war movement is back and bigger than ever.

Target Iran: Scott Ritter and Jeff Cohen

Community Forum with Special Guest Speakers
December 10, 2006
College of Marin, Olney Hall

SCOTT RITTER, author of TARGET IRAN and IRAQ CONFIDENTIAL, was one of UNSCOM's most senior weapons inspectors in Iraq between 1991 and 1998, after having served for eight years as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. As a Marine, he conducted arms inspections in the former Soviet Union, and provided analysis of Iraq's missile capacity to General Schwarzkopf in the 1991 Gulf War. Nation Books is the publisher of "Target Iran: The Truth About the White House's Plans for Regime Change" and "Iraq Confidential." "The important thing to know about Scott Ritter is that he was right." - Seymour Hersh

JEFF COHEN, author of CABLE NEWS CONFIDENTIAL, worked for MSNBC as an on-air commentator and senior producer of "Donahue" until the show was terminated on the eve of the Iraq war. He founded Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), co-hosted CNN's "Crossfire," was a weekly panelist on Fox News Channel's "Newswatch," and appeared frequently on many national TV and radio programs, including "The Today Show," "Larry King Live," "The O?Reilly Factor," C-SPAN, and NPR. PoliPointPress is the publisher of "Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media." "Jeff Cohen's dissection of cable TV news is both irresistibly funny and civically painful. It goes from uproarious anecdotes to those that make you wince." - Molly Ivins

Beach Impeach, San Francisco

January 6, 2007 -- Over 1000 people gathered in Nancy Pelosi's district, on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, to spell out the message "IMPEACH!" "America is a great country," said event organizer Brad Newsham, a local cab driver and author. "But President Bush has betrayed our faith. He mislead us into a disastrous war, and is trampling on our Constitution. He has to go. Now. I hope Nancy Pelosi is listening today."

A majority of Americans share Newsham's sentiments. A 2006 Zogby poll found that 52% of Americans agreed with the statement: "If President Bush wiretapped American citizens without the approval of a judge, do you agree or disagree that Congress should consider holding him accountable through impeachment?"
