Flurry of weekend events nationwide to urge impeachment
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Activists in 25 states and the District of Columbia plan to hold protests, rallies, open meetings and other events this weekend urging Congress to investigate and impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

The campaign, run by a coalition of anti-Bush organizations, kicks off with a New York forum Saturday featuring anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan and former New York Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman. Most of the events will be held the following day, December 10, coinciding with Human Rights Day.

Organizers plan to make their case in myriad ways including poetry readings, panel discussions, film viewings, parades, street theater, activist workshops and even a mock funeral to the U.S. Constitution in New Haven, Connecticut.
