This just in…
Exciting news: there’s new life in the accountability movement! The People v Bush: One Lawyer’s Campaign to Bring the President to Justice and the National Grassroots Movement She Encounters Along the Way (Chelsea Green) has just been published. Author Charlotte Dennett will be in Cambridge January 20 at the Harvard Bookstore at 7 pm to discuss it and the following day, January 21, at 7 p.m. in New York City at the 92nd St Y. Vincent Bulgiosi is flying all the way from the west coast and will join Naomi Wolf in helping her launch the book on the 21st.
Charlotte and David Swanson just filed a FOIA request to get the long-supressed internal misconduct report on Bush’s lawyers.
Back to Charlotte’s book: The advance praise has been terrific. Wolf calls Charlotte “one of the gutsiest women in America” for trying to “hold our leaders criminally accountable for shredding the Constitution.” Howard Zinn says her book is “trying to awaken the conscience of the nation.” And David Swanson says, “The eventual success of the accountability movement will be furthered by the success of this remarkable book.”
The People v Bush is not just about Charlotte’s race for attorney general in Vermont pledging to prosecute Bush. She’s recounts stories from our own leaders, and the book even has a ten page appendix listing organizations involved in accountability.
So: mark your calendars: January 20, Harvard Bookstore, 1256 Mass ave in Cambridge and January 21, 92nd St. Y, NY, NY
