Distinguished Panel Hears Charge of Crimes Against Humanity

www.bushcommission.org

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration has announced January 20-22 for its final session of hearings. Verdicts are expected around the time of the Bush’s State of the Union address and nationwide demonstrations occurring then. The work of the Commission is historic, with the potential to profoundly affect the gathering storm around the Bush administration.

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration of the United States

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration of the United States, www.bushcommission.org

When the possibility of far-reaching war crimes and crimes against humanity exists, people of conscience have a solemn responsibility to inquire into the nature and scope of these acts and to determine if they do in fact rise to the level of war crimes and crimes against humanity. That is the mission of the International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity. The final session will be held January 20-22 in New York City. This tribunal will, with care and rigor, present evidence and assess whether George W. Bush and his administration have committed crimes against humanity. Well-established international law will be referenced where applicable, but the tribunal will not be limited by the scope of existing international law.

Calling All Bloggers: These Documents need publishing

Background:

Letters | IMPEACH BUSH

Read the following letter to the editor from the Philadelphia Daily News, and then go here to write your own to your own local paper.

______________

After considering his latest TV performance in defending his latest scandal, I write today to sound the alarm that our President is officially out of control. Though I had not considered it a serious possibility, after reflecting on it I agree with those who say it is time to get rolling with our impeachment option.

Since we told you Tuesday night about Congressman Conyers' new bills to hold Bush and Cheney accountable for their war lies, 26,000 people have visited the action alert page, and 17,000 have Emailed their Congress Members. You can add to those numbers here.

Bring Peace to the White House the Day After Xmas

PeaceAction Montgomery will be working to end the war in Iraq by gathering in Washington, DC, and placing toy soldiers labeled "Bring Me Home" around each of the 56 Christmas trees on the Ellipse in front of the White House. Please join us in spreading the message of what the U.S. must do. The trees are part of the season's message of Peace on Earth. Each state and territory is sending its sons and daughters to fight in a war without reason or end. This must end. Let's place our wishes to bring these soldiers to safety at the foot of each tree and remind Americans that it's time to bring the soldiers home.

Lights on for Impeachment

Here's an idea and a graphic from Daniel I. Fearn: Drive with your headlights on if you favor impeachment.

State of the Union: Plan Now!

Tuesday January 31 - Drown Out Bush's Lies during the State of the Union

Saturday, February 4 - Protest at the Seat of Government! BUSH STEP DOWN

It's going to take an organized movement of millions to Drive OUT the Bush Regime: The LA Times reported last month that Bush's advisors hope his speech will lead the populace to "turn the page" on the debacle of the past few months, as crime after crime has been exposed and Bush's poll numbers fell. They're hoping to regroup and "reposition" Bush, to focus people on going forward united with his program. There is not doubt that he will push on "to radically remake society, very quickly, in a faxcist way, and for generations to come", as our Call says.
