'110,000 And Growing'
The Raw Story is reporting that the "office of Representative John Conyers (D-MI) believes it has surpassed its stated goal of 100,000 signatures requesting an investigation into the Downing Street Memo, minutes of a British Prime Minister's meeting on July 23, 2002."
""Right now, we are going through signatures to verify the number," said Danielle Brown, Conyers' spokesperson. Brown currently puts the number of signers at an, "estimated 110,000 and growing." With Conyers' web site receiving about 5,000 unique visitors every 4 to 5 hours, the Congressman has made his revised goal 250,000 signatures."
If every single person who signed the petition can get two friends or relatives to do the same than we can get a third of a million signatures within the next few days.
Then let's shoot for half-a-million.
Then a million signatures.
Again, here's the link to the Conyers letter: Conyers Blog.
Here is a poster for you to hang in your school or your office or your local community group.
It can be done. It is possible. Most of the country believes that the Bush Administration acted deceptively in the run-up to the Iraq invasion of 2003.
So let's do it. Let's send a message to the White House. Let's send a message to the world. Let's prove that the American public DOES have a say in our democratically elected government.
Each day at Daily Kos there will be a diary posted which will suggest different ways in which we can awaken the mainstream media and get them to devote proper coverage to the Downing Street 'Memo'. Here's the latest diary: Awaken the MSM: Downing Street Memo Alert (6/3).
After Downing Street is now getting a million hits a day. A million hits! That's more than any of the top blogs - from either side - get!
