GLEN ROCK, NJ - Moveon.org has scheduled an 'impeach Trump' rally tomorrow, Dec. 17, at Congressman Josh Gottheimer's office.
Moveon.org, a left-wing political action organization, has organized rallies nationwide scheduled for Dec. 17, the day prior to the House of Representatives articles of impeachment vote. The House has brought forth two Articles of Impeachment against President Donald J. Trump: Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress.
According to organizers, 400 people have signed-up to attend the Glen Rock location, 65 Harristown Road, 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17. In total, it is a 50-state effort with more than 550 rallies scheduled and 130,000 people signed up to attend.
Since a mid-week rally in the days leading to the holiday are challenging for many to attend, according to organizers, Indivisible NJ5, Indivisible Englewood, Action Together New Jersey, Women for Progress, Teaneck Women Together, Ridgewood Jolt, and other groups held a rally on Sunday, December 15, in Hackensack. The rallies have been called to demand Congressional representatives vote affirmatively for impeachment.
Speakers for the Dec. 17 rally include educators, grassroots leaders, attorneys and individuals. Organizer Susan Steinberg said, “No one is above the law and according to the Constitution and the Department of Justice, the only remedy for a sitting president is impeachment. We demand our representatives uphold their Oaths of Office and do their job to protect our country from an obstructionist Chief Executive. They must vote yes.”
In NJ, additional events are taking place in Montclair, Newark, South Orange, Summit, Newton, Plainfield, and New Brunswick.
