Impeachment Proponents Fill Church
Several hundred people attended a rally at the First Congregational Church on Congress Street on April 28th calling for the impeachment of President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

The event was sponsored by Peace Action Maine and Maine Campaign to Impeach. David Swanson of spoke about the status and the prospects of the current impeachment movement. Other speakers included Green Party gubernatorial candidate Pat LaMarche, independent congressional candidate Dexter Kamilevich, and Portland City Councilor Jill Duson.

About 30 people left the church after the rally and marched across the street to the offices of the Portland Press Herald to call for more thorough reporting of issues relating to the war in Iraq and the impeachment movement.
