Pride At Work Passes Historic Resolution
Toward Impeachment of George W. Bush and Richard Cheney


At the 2006 Pride At Work Convention in San Diego, California, Pride At Work AFL-CIO member delegates passed an historic resolution calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Pride At Work became the first national gay organization and the first national labor organization to call for the impeachment of the President and Vice President.
The resolution is below.

Resolution in Support of Impeachment

Whereas, George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney’s government attacked Iraq, against the decisions of the United Nations, violating the U.N. charter, planning and committing a war of aggression in violation of the Nuremberg Charter; and

Whereas, this government then invaded a sovereign country that has not threatened the United States and had no ability to do so; and

Whereas, this government has undertaken and publicized plans to invade or conduct illegal political and military interventions in a variety of countries around the world, including Cuba, Venezuela, Haiti, Iran and Korea; and,

Whereas, this government authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to conduct illegal wiretaps on American citizens; and,

Whereas, this government set up a system of prisons around the world where prisoners can be tortured and abducted and has transported persons from the United States, Europe and elsewhere to other countries for the purpose of having them detained indefinitely and tortured; and

Whereas, this government authorized secret rules of torture and interrogation by the CIA and permits these rules to stay in effect; and

Whereas, this government has arrested and detained citizens of the United States illegally for indeterminate periods of incarceration;

Therefore, be it resolved, that Pride at Work send a letter of support to Congressperson Conyers in favor of his bill to inquire into grounds for impeachment;

Be it further resolved, that Pride at Work lend our endorsement to efforts to initiate proceedings to impeach George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney and remove them from office for high crimes and misdemeanors, including war crimes against the peoples of Afghanistan, Iraq and the United States.
