Here’s an interesting tidbit from the Feminist Peace Network discussion list:
A.R.T. stands for “Activist Response Team,” which consists in large part of
feminist artists. Here is their press release of the stunning event they
pulled off in the Hart Senate Office Building. Check out the photograph of
the 3-story long banners they unfurled at: http://bloggy.com/
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS – WE WILL NOT BE SILENT
Multiple actions occurred in the early afternoon today inside the Hart
Senate Office Building. Eight New York activists were among the 15 plus arrested.
TODAY, APRIL 26, 2007, A.R.T.* OCCUPIED THE HALLS OF CONGRESS IN A DRAMATIC TWO-PART ACTION.
First, in a massive distribution, A.R.T. hand-delivered a 20-page tabloid
petition to every representative. It contained documentary evidence for
indictments, literally putting impeachment back on the table.
Then, at 1PM, in a spectacular visual feat, A.R.T displayed the full text of
Article II, Section 4 to the Senate (allows for impeachment) as a 30-foot
banner drop in the Hart Office Building atrium. A second 30-foot banner read
“YOUR SILENCE YOUR LEGACY”. Organizers said, “We must magnify the refusal of Congress to uphold the Constitution. Their silence equals complicity in the flagrant crimes of this administration.”
