Activists Call for Impeachment; City Council Blocks The Vote!

by ~Bradley (bradley [at] riseup.net)
On July 25th, Santa Cruz activists, guided by the Coalition for Impeachment Now (COIN), attended the last Santa Cruz City Council meeting of the summer in an effort to get "our city representatives" to place a measure on the ballot in November calling for the impeachment of George Bush and Richard Cheney.

The City Council meeting was filled with people in support of an agenda item brought forth by council member Tim Fitzmaurice asking for a measure to be placed directly onto the Santa Cruz City Ballot in November, calling for the impeachment of George Bush and Richard Cheney.

There were also a lot of people at the meeting who were in support of a sensible marijuana policy initiative. The Santa Cruz Citizens for Sensible Marijuana Policy have qualified an initiative for the November ballot that will make private adult marijuana offenses the lowest police priority.

The City Council decided to give Santa Cruz voters the opportunity to vote on the initiative to make private adult marijuana offenses the lowest police priority, however the City Council voted down (3 yes / 4 no) the agenda item by Fitzmaurice asking for a measure to be placed directly onto the Santa Cruz City Ballot in November calling for the impeachment of George Bush and Richard Cheney.

Santa Cruz City Council voted to pass a resolution that Mike Rotkin put on the agenda. City Council passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of George Bush. This is not what activists at the meeting wanted. People wanted the opportunity for a city-wide vote to impeach Bush and Cheney.
