Downing Street Hearing! Watch on CSPAN3!

Finally, there will be an official meeting on the Downing Street Minutes! Although John Conyers has to hold this hearing in a small basement room of the Capitol, since the Republican majority on the Judiciary Committee will not allow him to use Committee space, as he has in the past for this, nevertheless, it is an official room.

And, since the room for the hearing only holds 20 seats, (to accommodate people bringing 500,000-plus signatures), there will be an overflow room -- the Wasserman Room of the DNC on South Capitol Street.

Here's the info on watching it, courtesy of BradBlog via the Big Brass Blog forum:

C-SPAN has committed to carrying the U.S. House Judiciary Democrats hearings tomorrow on C-SPAN 3. They will be carried LIVE.

For those who don't receive C-SPAN 3 on their local cable system, the video and/or audio from the hearings should be carried via the Internets right here.

The hearings will also be carried live on Pacifica Radio and via Radio Left.

Yesterday,, another very large citizens activist organization, joined in sending Petitions to its members to collect signatures for John Conyers Letter to Bush, to be delivered bu Conyers himself after tomorrow's hearing. joins who last week collected some 500,000 signatures in 48 hours or so.
