A few years ago I participated in a project called “Bare Witness for Peace”, a movement whereby activists gathered together and created peace messages with our unclothed bodies. See the Utah Photo
Looks like a similar, albeit clothed, concept has been organized: Beach Impeach
Volunteers gather to form 100-foot letters stretching 450 feet across the sand on Ocean Beach in San Francisco on Saturday to spell the word “impeach” for the benefit of aerial travelers. The Beach Impeach Project was organized by activist Brad Newsham. Beach Impeach Project photo by John Montgomery

The eminent 3,000th U.S. soldier death in Iraq approaches(2998 as of the time of this writing). In three years and 9 months since the Iraq War began, American military casualties have now exceeded 25,000. Hundreds of thousands of deaths overall have occurred in this time period as a result of this illegal war and occupation.
End it now. Impeach for Peace, January 27-29th.
(Better late than never)
CALL TO ACTION
Starting at noon on September 1 2006, participating websites and blogs will replace their front pages with the single word “Impeach” in simple white text on a black background. (See this page for an example.) For 24 hours, web surfers and blog readers will see that word first when they visit their favorite sites. In this way, we hope to get the public talking about the one tool guaranteed by the Founders to restore our Constitutional Democracy.
What can I do? If you run a website or blog, then on September 1 2006, replace your home page with the single word “Impeach” in bold Times New Roman white text on a black background. Feel free to help yourself to the code here (getting a single word to display in the center of a page in all browsers is a little trickier than you might think). Back up your existing home page first (often index.html) and display this new one for 24 hours, from noon September 1 to noon September 2. If you use the provided code, we have made the “period” a link which you can customize to allow visitors to enter the rest of your web page.
If you don’t have your own webpage or blog but still think that this is a good idea, then please send this information to your favorite sites and convince them to participate (click here for a sample message). Additionally, please feel free to leave a comment here or on the blog. Just as important as replacing your home page for one day is letting your website visitors know why, so please publicize this both beforehand and afterward. Also, let us know that you plan to participate and we will include a link to your site in our blogroll.
